The skateboard maker from ABC Open Gold Coast on Vimeo.
Have you ever had the urge to chuck in your day job and just do the thing you love.
Well that is exactly what Palm Beach man Jimmy Kakanis did about two years ago when he took up skateboard making full time.
The idea came to Jimmy and a friend when they were having trouble finding the perfect board to skate downhill, so they decided to make their own.
Jimmy wasn't deterred by his lack of knowledge on the skateboard-making process and quickly learned the fundamentals from watching numerous Youtube videos.
He now has the process for skateboard-making down to a fine art while still maintaining his own unique style.
Priding himself on each board becoming a unique one-off shape and pattern is what makes Jimmy's boards different from everyone else's.
His use of fabric to decorate the deck is his big point of difference.
Originally sourcing recycled fabrics from op shops in recent months the process has evolved into Jimmy creating his own graphics from drawings and having those printed on cotton.
Skateboarding is a huge subculture on the Gold Coast and Jimmy is a passionate man trying to make his mark on the industry with his own sense of style.
