Micheal Dittman and his daughter Paige built longboards together, based on the article in MAKE Volume 26. Besides this being epically cool and sweet in its own right, they started the project over Spring Break, but when Paige had to go back to school, they continued to collaborate, finish their respective projects, via Skype and email. Kudos to Michael and Paige. Great job!
