Back in Production in Semester 2






Norah and Ted at Roarockit Skateboard Company invited students to their studio to kick-off the production of skateboards in the second semester of our newly expanded program. Returning students acted as teachers mentoring new students, and we are excited to see designs for original longboard shapes emerging from our team of custom builders.
