Bamboo Skateboards is an ecologically-based skateboard brand and manufacturer of high-quality skateboards made of sustainable bamboo from managed forests based in Encinitas, California. They are social entrepreneurs who believe that giving back to the community is as equally important as profits. Longboards from bamboo are very flexible and last for quite some time.
Why use Bamboo wood?
They choose bamboo because of its endless renewability as a resource, and its minimal effect on the environment. When skateboarding took over flooring as one of the major contributors to maple deforestation, their mission became to explore other ways of making skateboards. Bamboo not only aids in creating better boards but is also a socially responsible choice.
