We've seen a lot of cool furniture built from recycled skateboard decks, but these are the first skateboards we've seen that are made from 100% repurposed wood scraps.
When it comes to green transportation, bicycles get all the glory. But what about skateboards? They might not be as practical for long trips. But for short jaunts, they're fun and green. My brother, who went to UC Davis in California for his undergrad degree, rode his longboard to class every single day.
These longboards by DANIELMOYERDESIGN are made in Brooklyn from "100% repurposed local premium hardwood scrap." They sell for $325, which doesn't seem so bad for a handmade board. I know my brother would be willing to pay that much, easily.
Any skateboarders out there? Do you skateboard just for fun, or do you use it as a green form of alternative transportation?
