- Bamboo Skateboards -
Bamboo Skateboards is an Oceanside, California skateboard brand and manufacturer of skateboards made from bamboo from managed forests.
Creating skate decks that are made 100 percent out of bamboo and bamboo hybrids, the Southern California company competes in the dog-eat-dog skate industry, where a majority of the manufacturers use less sustainable maple wood for their decks.
Bamboo skateboards are lighter and stronger than maple. So, you get more “pop” when performing tricks and refining your skills. Nothing performs better than bamboo.
Bamboo absorbs impact better than maple. Your naturally shock-absorbent bamboo skateboard will resist cracking and provide top performance far longer than maple.
Bamboo is hailed as the resource of the 21st century because it has countless ethical, environmental and other benefits.
Bamboo is a type of grass: cut it down and it grows back stronger than before. It’s not endangered. Managed bamboo-farms have a minimal effect on the environment.
Bamboo prevents soil erosion, requires no toxic fertilizers, and is lighter and stronger than steel itself! It is a pioneering plant and can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture without the need for pesticides or much water.
