Longboarding the Snow Away

Longboard making classes at Duluth Folk School

DULUTH, Minn.- As the snow piles up, some dream of longboarding down a hot, sunny boardwalk surrounded by Palm Trees and beaches.

Duluth Folk School gave Northlanders a small taste of that.

A three-day class began Wednesday in making your own Longboard, a longer skateboard.

Students started with stock pieces of wood, learning how to use a table saw, which led them to having their own basic shape to continue working on tomorrow.

“It’s a small class, makes it more fun, makes it more intimate, you can kind of get to know each person a bit better and you can be more hands on with them,” Zach Sullivan, Youth Program Coordinator at the Folk School.

While this class was preā€“registration only, the Folk School says they will have more classes like this in the spring.
