Nets to decks

| Recycle Outdoor Gear | 28th May, 2014


A new Skateboard is made of debris trawled from the sea.

California’s Bureo Skateboards is working with the Chilean government to create Minnow, a skateboard whose deck is made entirely from abandoned fishing nets from the country’s coastline.

Bureo Skateboards helped fund the release of Minnow through a successful Kickstarter.

The board can now be purchased from the company’s webstore for USD 145, shipping in August.
