The first thing that is done, the maple wood is planed down with fine layers named veneers. Afterwards, the veneers are laminated, and by using a special machine they are adhesive spread all over the wood. Next thing that is done is the veneers are glued together with a glue and placed into a mould. Once the mould is finished, a hydraulic press is jamming the layers from the nose up to the concave of the deck and strengthens the deck to the maximum. After the shape of the deck is done, there are holes drilled on the edges for the wheel holders to be installed. The deck is painted with a sealant, to protect it from warping and moisture. Graphics are added to get that cool look, and the process is quite similar to one that is used for printing t-shirts.
If you are not experienced skater you will probably need a lot of time to get the right balance while riding. To fix that, skateboard makers top their boards with special sheets of sand paper called grip tapes. Trucks are attached to the front and back of the board and they are T-shaped. They offer you wheel spin and the ability to keep balance while riding. The wheels are made from durable material, that can take any rough structure on the road or on the skate track. Both wheels roll smoothly, because of the rotating disks that sit inside the left and right side of the wheels.
Now you know all the basic on how the skateboard is made and works. It is going to be an interesting journey to accomplish your personal goals. Do not despair you will get there. In the begging, everybody falls but that is why you will buy all the necessary equipment and be safe from injuries. Good luck and roll your way to greatness!
