Hey guys,

Today I will help you to make your own skateboard at home. I believe if you have the necessary tools then you should be able to create a homemade skateboard easily.

Besides, it is way more fun and excitement to have something made by you. You can also design your own artwork style that no one can have the same as yours.

In this guide, I will show you two common shapes that skateboards have: The plat concave and W-concave shapes.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

1. The tools and materials

First of all, let’s prepare some tools and materials beforehand, you will need:

a. Table saw – very helpful to cut long, wooden plank. It is also easy to cut long curves and different shapes.

b. Band saw – it can cut small, curves intricately. It is super great to make balanced and symmetrical boards.

c. Sanders (handheld, paper or benchtop belt sanders) – these sanders help to smooth out the edges and give you the amazing feeling. It also eliminates wood chips that might hurt you.

d. Drills (handheld or tabletop drill) – this is used for creating truck holes on your skateboard. As we will buy the trucks and wheels separately, then we attached them on our skateboard once finished.

A good skateboard for kids is not simple that you select a pair of skateboard and come to home only. You need to consider many things like safety, style, and weight before ordering the board for them.

There are a lot of skateboards with different categories for kids and adults. Some company even generates boards for children but adults can use these for the first time of catching a terrain.

In this post, I turn to MEKETEC brand to help you recognize that is it an attractive deal for your kids and…adults as well. How could it make that?!

The design is so astounding with different graphics that any buyer can pick out their own favorite styles. The shape’s lightweight and slim enough to help skaters feel comfy in each terrain.

Most of the boards weigh about 4 pounds with the plastic materials and 3.25 inches in the trucks making them suitable on your bag. This is the reason kids and adults can select MEKETEC. Size’s really available for children, but be sure that kids should spend lots of hours to learn how to handle the board.

With adults kicking off the skateboarding, don’t touch a heavy one because you can’t bend or turn around smoothly. Commuting’s so tired when you want to take it anywhere.

Please notice that all boards don’t have electric power to start and move. You need to utilize your foot to make it run.

Is it ideal for professional riders? Beginners, including kids, love the board a lot, so experienced users also can try. It depends on the way we skate pretty much. MEKETEC produces various boards for different skill levels.

Due to the ABEC 7 bearings, they could make your board faster than ever. The 60-mm urethane wheels and the 22.5-inch can allow loading 200 pounds. It is hard to believe that a lightweight skateboard may allow a heavy adult, but this is a true fact. So, you are able to remove the maximum load issue!

When owning this product, you will recognize that you don’t get a horrible purchase because the board always outperforms high value and a hefty price at all.
