Hey Adam, that foam core looks awesome. Where'd you get your foam for the core from? and is that a wooden stringer running down the centre?

This place is a bit of a ghost town these days...

Anyway a few of you might remember the steel decks I knocked together a couple of years ago, well this is the next stage in the evolution. 

The truck mounts are steel which are riveted onto the alloy bearers. I was focusing on lightweight for this build since I tend to cop a lot of flak for the weight of the previous steel decks. For those of you playing at home the deck weighs in at about 1.2kg.

I did a bit of a rush job putting it together so I'm not happy with a couple of the welds, i'll probably strip it down and tidy them up before I really push it. I live like 2 minutes away from the G5 so I've taken it down that a couple of times and already I'm smitten. Its way smoother and accelerates way faster than the previous gen and the bigger platform makes such a difference.

Wheelbase is about 800mm and deck width about 240mm 

Heres a couple of snaps

Brakeboard Pty Ltd, the Australian company that has invented and produced the Brakeboard foot-brake for longboards, now has stock of their latest models. These are available from their St Kilda HQ and also from the Twelve Board Store in Richmond.
They are based on the successful Kickstarter project with many other
small improvements.

We I haven't been on here for ages. That foamcore looks awesome.

I finished the build! Although there were a lot of mistakes (some were just plain stupidity from rushing like the uneven wheel wells) I am pretty stoked to have a carbon foamie that I can and will ride. The deck weighs in at just on 1kg and I have set it up with Rogue 43 degree precision trucks and some pink big zigs for now. Definitely learnt heaps with this build. I think my next one will be maple again but I will experiment with using less maple and more composites.

Anyway let me know what you all think!

Board specs again
