I’ve been getting some interest in the decks I’ve made and wanted to open this up to the community in case anyone else is interested.
I am available for commissions on any custom deck work including duplicates of the Komodo eboards I am in progress of building.
So far I have the Komodo longboard and Komodo mountainboard platform, both complete with grip that I am able to duplicate for set prices, and any custom work for a negotiable price based on materials and labor
I am open to alterations in color, amount of visible stained wood, grip tape design or custom lettering (shown on MTB) while still retaining set price (as long as requested changes require no additional material)
Longboard is 7ply Hardwood Maple 40in x 10.3in little to no flex with 175lb rider, mild flex with 200lb
MTB is layered with [Bamboo/Fiberglass/Maple/Fiberglass/Bamboo] and measures 35.5in x 8.5in(widest) or 6.6in(narrowest) and has moderate to lots of flex depending on foot placement on the deck. Example, lots of flex at center of deck, low/moderate flex at usual binding placement closer to the tip angles. Tips are 20deg angles. Comes predrilled for bindings.
NOTE: The deck I use to build the MTB has been discontinued, so until I can find a suitable replacement there is only the Komodo longboard available, sorry
The deck I used to make that exact board was unfortunately discontinued recently and I only know of one store that still has one or two left and they are asking $200 each for just the stock deck, so after I put work into it it’ll be ~$300, and that’s if I can get my hands on one before they vanish
However @TarzanHBK found a similar deck that I could make look almost identical to the Komodo MTB and it’s only $78 stock, so I could do $175+shipping for one of those
No pics of diy’s board yet since I just became aware of it, but it will look very similar. And yes that’s the one I’d be using at the 175 price point. I want to get my hands on one to test its durability before I start sending them out tho.
I resurface the deck for painting, fill any cracks or holes, stain and seal the wood (usually, i couldn’t get the stain to work on the MTB since the bamboo was actually laminated so I went with all black), design create and place the stenciling, cut out the lettering and resurface for painting, paint (multiple coats with sanding for durability), then clear coat the deck and apply grip
