Bamboo sheets are made of many vertical strips, sanded and glued together. Our bamboo stock is milled to a thickness that is suitable for bending into pretty radical curves, however not as extreme as maple or birch.
Bamboo boards have great properties for riding, in that it gives you back as much rebound as you put into it.
The bamboo is very fragile to handle until it is laminated, we have to ship this in special crates so that it will survive the trip. Thats what it is only available in 10 or 20 pack sizes.
How to use this product:
As this is a new material for us, we will be posting tutorials online when we (and our customers) experiment with this fine stock.

Bamboo is very fragile. Splits are a fact of life with this stock. Even gentle handling will likely result in sheets splitting or even breaking completely along the glue lines. Shipping increases the chance of splits, despite our careful packing. If you order this stock, you will most likely encounter splits, however the sheets are entirely useable. Please do not contact us to tell us there are splits. Simply apply glue to those lines while pressing your board. Once dried, the board will be very strong.
