HannahB. boards are constructed from 7-Ply, Hard Rock Canadian Maple. Maple is the skateboard industry standard because of it's quality and durability, that is why I choose to build with it, it's simply the best. I use a vacuum press process to ensure even pressure, which is where the strength of a board comes from. The concaves and kicktails are formed over molds that I custom shape. The wood and mold go into the press together to create all of those curves.
