A Skateboard Has Never Broken Like This!
Paul Schmitt AKA The Professor from PS Stix and CreateAskate.org explains and shows the science behind what makes the perfect balance of pop and durability in a skateboard deck.
It's easy enough to run into a skateshop and just pick out a deck that you like but do you know where it comes from or why it acts the way it does? Turns out it is a highly refined and scientific formula, involving naturally occurring nanotubes and even the climate that certain Maple trees are grown in.
Paul Schmitt, a legend in the skateboard manufacturing game not only shows and explains why 7 plies is the magic number but also why the ratio of grain direction in each ply matters greatly.
A fantastic way to sneak in some math, botany, and nano-technology during the age of distance learning.
