Building a bamboo longboard

Despite never having skated before, my last summer was mostly spent 
building longboards. I really felt the urge to try it out.
Soon I could hardly think of anything else but building one myself. 
With the help of a good friend, Neil Scott, who is in the process 
of building more professionnel longboards, I have managed to make two 
boards from scratch which was a very interesting process. 
Here are some pictures of our work in progress.
The wood used for this board is bamboo, quite expensive choice
but it gives the board nice movement and bounce.
