Pintail Longboard for Basement

Just continuing the thought from last time.

How about using a pintail to run on the basement skatepark dream.
A pintail might be a bit long, but I found some 38 inchers in this pintail longboard  collection, so that might just work.

Would probably go for the blunt nose outer limits from Stella Longboard.


Rad design and seem great for what I want to do (even outside of the basement).

Although its probably even better to get a board with a kicktail so you can do some tricks and flip the curb.


Need to think and research a bit more….

Basement Skatepark Dream

Sometimes you wonder what  you do in a basement when I would be REALLY big.

One of the ideas we can up with is having a skate park / Ramp in your basement.
Working with wood is part of our daily work, but this would take things to a whole new level. We could even tryout some of the smaller longboards from Ehlers Longboards on a smooth wooden surface. I think it would be a blast.


Here something that would fit the dream – from suburban rails who design a lot of parks.


just a side thought. What would be your ridiculous basement dream?


The Latest Trends In Basement Flooring

As Homeowners you want a practicaL and innovative approach when it comes to finishing or remodeling a basement. Here’s what’s happening in four popular areas:

  • Tile Innovations: There’s no rule stating the whole floor must be covered with one material. Flooring can be mixed, in terms of usage and functions. For basement remodels, your clients might appreciate broader offerings that include porcelain tiles finished to resemble wood planks, natural stone or concrete.

  • Carpet Squares: While carpeting may warm up the home’s basement floor, it’s not the best solution for moisture prevention. One growing trend is laying carpet squares over concrete. That way, if there are any water issues, an individual square can be ripped up quickly and the floor can be mopped before mold sets in.
  • Sustainable Flooring: More than a buzzword, this is one of the fastest-growing trends in flooring. Look for labels with certifications that guarantee high percentages of biodegradable or recycled content in carpet, ceramic tiles and wood flooring.
  • Cork: Because it’s soft and it breathes, cork may provide more comfort than a concrete floor. Plus cork doesn’t rot. If it gets wet, just sponge it up. Cork is a very durable material that’s being used more in sub-level kitchens and bars. Just be sure the product manufacturer recommends it for below-grade or basement installations.

Some Considerations before you start flooring


Before you start  you should know

  • Does the Flooring Material Dry Out?: Flooring that will dry out (in the event of flooding) with no or little harm always are preferred. Ceramic tile is a perfect example. But this does not mean you have to stay away from the other types–laminate, wood, etc.
  • You Already Have Concrete: Lets assume that you already have a concrete basement slab. This is the first step to any basement flooring.
  • Flooring Straight on Slab: Some basement flooring can be installed directly on the concrete slab. A ceramic tile is the perfect example of this.
  • Foam Underlayment: If installing laminate flooring, it is possible to install it directly on the concrete slab. By “directly,” we mean with a foam underlayment between the laminate and concrete (no subfloor).
  • Sub-Floor Sleepers: Other types of basement flooring require a sleeper system of plywood, two-by-fours, and underlayment to further raise the flooring off the slab. Resilient flooring and carpeting would require this type of sub-flooring.
