Teaching the class will be Master Skateboard Builder, Brian La Vallee who is a Technology and Art teacher at Lake Placid Middle High School in New York.

Each participant will design and build their very own custom skateboard deck.

The cost of the class to make your own deck is $135 for a Mini Cruiser, $150 for a Skateboard, or $170 for a Longboard. If you are under the age of 18 your parent must attend, but at no cost. All supplies, including trucks & bearings, are included in the fee. The maximum class size is 15 participants.
