How to Make & Decorate a Grippy Longboard Guard with Sugru

Making guards (or Sugru-shields as we like to call them) is a great use of Sugru, because it sets strong, adheres to many materials and is very weather-resistant. This makes it a great shock absorber for life’s clumsy moments. Sugru-shields have a particularly strong history in smartphone protection, but here to try and knock that into second place is… the grippy longboard guard. Drum roll please…



Roll a Single-Use pack of Sugru into Two Sausages...


And have a sausage roll. (Ahem, roll the sausage Sugru's out a bit).


Mauld the Sausages onto the Board...


One needs to be evenly placed at the tail end and one at the nose, and then you’ll need to merge them in the middle. 


Get ready…


By applying cool decorations to your sugru-shield. There’s lots of ways you can do this, including stamping a design into the Sugru with a Sugru-stamp. 


Get set


By waiting 24 hours for the Sugru to set into a firm rubber.


...Gooooooooooo!


Take your brand new protected Longboard out to show it off. 


And once you’ve come back, login to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, and send us a picture of your Sugru longboard guard using the hashtag  #mysugrufix, because if you do, we may just send you some free Sugru…
