Sk8 Bamboo Gr8ness
With the collective experience of 25+ years Geoff Koboldt and Ron Stebenne, of BambooSk8, know what's up when it comes to skateboards and what individual skaters across the globe are looking for.
Established in 2007, BambooSK8 of Oceanside, California, specializes in 100% bamboo skateboards and veneers. They currently own provisional patent, in both the USA and other key countries, to protect the application and design of their 100% bamboo skateboards.
This eco-conscious company takes responsibility for how their operations affect the planet by performing such business practices as choosing the bamboo from their managed bamboo forests to recycling the decks after they have been worn down.
Bamboosk8 also makes it easier for consumers to contribute to green practices not only with their sustainable product, but also the transportation it provides--Talk about minimizing your carbon-footprint.
Seeking to revolutionize the way the action sports industry views and uses natural resources, BambooSk8 strives to create a better product for a better world built around sustainability.
We applaud BambooSk8 for their determination to make a positive difference in influencing the shift from maple-deforestation to sustainable-bamboo in deck creation! These generous gents also donated a deck in which will be up for auction during the event. You can see it up close and personal at Ecologique: FGF.
You can also find their decks at any of the Play It Again Sports in San Diego in addition to many other locations, internationally. Check them out at www.bamboosk8.com
