I've been designing, building, and riding innovative longboards since 2008. I've filmed longboarding, taught longboard building classes, designed custom boards for friends, and coached dozens of Dartmouth students through the build / ride experience. You can find some of my favorite boards right here, click for detailed design / build info and more photos. For videos check out my YouTube channel GoonerLongboards.
