My brother John started building longboards in his garage as a hobby. He wanted to starts skateboarding again this summer and since he is highly skilled at carpentry and woodwork he figured he could make a longboard for himself. He actually did such a nice job that he ended up making a bunch of them. He gave one to my son Jack and they both bought wheels, trucks, and bearings to complete them. He also had me paint one for him.
That's my bro.
