Deckster is a tool for generative skateboard design. I started developing it because I wanted to share the joy of crafting a custom board with other skaters and makers.

I began by breaking down skateboard design into a rule-based system and automating this process with software to explore traditional and experimental shapes. The end result is a series of hand-crafted objects and an open-source tool anyone can use to generate their own.
