Build your own Longboards using our all-inclusive ProKit.
Once you know how to vacuum-laminate a board, advance to these ProBuilder Kits and totally customise or prototype skateboards. These kits are designed for board builders who are experienced in the Roarockit vacuum method. Design and shape your own foam mold, press uncut sheets of veneer, then trim and finish your custom design. Instructions do not come with these kits. Choose the kit that best suits your needs.
The foam mold, Thin Air Press Bag and pump, edging tool and breather netting are designed to be used for many, many builds.
Keep all your reusable kit parts in good condition by following the maintenance tips included with the kit.
Using uncut sheets of veneer, plywood backer boards and external clamps can puncture a Thin Air Press bag. Treat your TAP bag with care, inspect regularly for holes.
How do I shape the mold foam?
View our tutorial first, then assemble the tools to mark, cut and sand the mold foam.
What else do I need to make a board with this kit?
A glue roller, possibly an off-cut sheet of plywood to act as a stiffener under the mold and a jigsaw (or bandsaw) to trim the pressed board
How radical a shape will the maple veneers bend around?
If you can bend it with your hands, it will bend in the Thin Air Press. Best way to check is to do a DRY RUN, stack your veneer without glue on the mold and press it in the TAP bag.
