I thought by now there wasn't anything left to re-make using bamboo. I was wrong. Bamboo Sk8 has released... Can you guess? A bamboo skateboard. Arbor and Comet have been making sustainably harvested decks for a while now (under better brand names, too. Seriously, "Sk8"? What is this, 1995?), but this is the first all-bamboo, shortboard-specific company I've heard of.
Now that bamboo has entered the "action" sports market (we already have hard drives and t-shirts made out of the stuff), can we finally declare the trend over? What's wrong with good old-fashioned post-consumer recycled material? I'd also like to see a carbon-footprint comparison of local, sustainably-harvested lumber vs. imported bamboo (unless B.Sk8 buys local?).
