Recycling

We’ve been supporting and recycling the UK skateboarding industry since 2011. We promote the use of environmentally friendly products; there is no power tools involved in the workshops. With all our professional deck build workshops there are offcuts, sometimes the decks are experiments in design and cannot be skated, so we use all the spare wood to create hand boards, (skateboards) mini skate parks, this has proved to be very popular.

We also make jewellery, accessories and home wares from recycled skateboards which are used in their original state incorporating every curve and shape to represent the character of the deck.

Being skaters we know that skateboards are not just a toy and we take great care to produce high end products that befit the life of the broken or pressed board.

We only use defected, broken or used skateboards and where the board has come from is part of each product.

As well as using all the offcuts from our courses, we are currently supplied with our skateboard decks from skate shops, skate parks, skate companies, pro skaters and friends.
