RETO - THE RECYCLED SKATEBOARD SURFBOARD



This is absolute awesome!! Dating back to December, 2011, Björn Holm has been hard at work collecting broken skateboards from friends, relatives, and fellow skaters in his community. His mission: a daunting DIY project of building a 6'4" fish made exclusively from old skateboards. This is not something you'd expect from a former professional motocross rider from Finland. But with studies in furniture design and an interest in board building, he utilized these skills to piece together a 20 pound, hollow surfboard out of material (skateboards) that essentially have no straight lines. The result: a colorful, 100% recycled surfboard. Enjoy Björn's story...

NOTE: After this video was created Bjorn has tested the board, and he reports that its working great!

"The board is stable, easy to paddle and catch waves with. And it is such an amazing thing to ride something that you have made yourself. There really is something special about it, all the hardwork put down finally pays off."
