What you should plan?

Clothing: We advise you to wear clothes that are safe during the courses. Although the glue and varnish we use are water-based products, once soaked into the fabrics, it is difficult to get them out (Clothing and shoes included).

Gloves and an apron may also be worn during gluing to ensure protection of the clothing. As dust and sawdust are omnipresent, a mask is recommended for all people who are sensitive to these materials.

Allergies: Please tell us if you have allergies or other health concerns. If there are places to prevent.

Safety: When the skateboard is finished, Roarockit approves and advises the wearing of helmets and other safety equipment at all times of use. Ride safely and according to your abilities.
