I originally wanted to explore the construction of carbon fiber spoilers and splitters on race cars. I thought a fun way to do this would be to build a skateboard using a similar construction method. This project served to practice my carbon fiber fabrication skills, which I’ll definitley be using more in the future.
After completing this project, I realized I learned a lot from all of the small mistakes I made along the way. I’ve been thinking of ways to streamline the whole production process so that I could even make several carbon decks in one layup. With all this in mind, I decided that once school was over, I’d start the process of making another carbon fiber skateboard. This one would be more durable and provide a better ride. I could even try to make several decks and sell them if I had enough interest.
I’m very happy with how my project turned out and hope I can take this concept further. I’d love to hear suggestions or interest from people about a carbon fiber longboard.
