In just 5 days you will prove that, with the right tools and instructions, you can create a truly incredible product from scratch: namely your very own skateboard! Working in a small team with a skateboard maker, you'll design and build a fully functional skateboard all the way from conception through to prototype and finished product.
First you'll have to build a skateboard press. Then, you'll design, shape, cut and press the deck using plywood sheets. Once the deck is ready, you'll paint it and add graphics to customise your board. To finish off, you'll fix trucks and wheels. Ready for a road test!
This mission is currently in development. The full itinerary will be available in early 2024.
