Our Broad Bay Virginia Tech Longboard Deck is tough enough for daily cruising, yet perfectly proportioned and versatile enough for the serious skater. Our skateboard decks are manufactured here in the USA using 100% North American Hard Rock Maple. They are pressed with glue specially designed for skateboards. All of our decks are pressed using a cold-press technique with 60 tons of pressure. Three VT skateboards are pressed per mold to insure concave consistency. We use the best glue available on the market which gives the boards the best balance of pop and flexibility. We use 7plys per deck : 1/16th thickness for our core and face grade veneers in combination with cross-band veneers that are 1/24" thick. This combination gives the thinnest, lightest, strongest board possible.
