I’m making my own esk8 but I have some questions about customizing my longboard. The result I would like to get is something similar as I saw on this forum a couple days ago:
I was thinking to buy a longboard, remove the griptape and sand it down to have a nice wood finish. I’ll use some spray to have enough grip afterwards and perhaps add a logo on the board.
I was thinking of buying the following board.
As I can get this board pretty cheap, I would also change the wheels to bigger orange ones, after mounting the trucks on the bottom. Do you guys think the wood under the paint and grip tape will have a nice look? Or should I buy a good looking wooden deck from the start? Or what do you recommend ?
Thanks in advance.
