Skateboards are made from Canadian Maple, a very special wood with various colors and patterns. Therefore, when a skate (SK8) board is broken (and a lot of them break everyday), the Canadian Maple goes to waste.
By re.using the wood of the broken skateboards. Compressing the boards we get a block of wood with a unique pattern. By cutting and hand-crafting each block we create a new line of eco-friendly and one-of-a-kind products.
By re.using and re.shaping the Canadian Maple wood, we are re.charging broken skateboards with a new life.
re.shaping the wood allows for endless design possibilities, having each piece its unique pattern and colors.

Being part of a circular economy, re.SK8 plays an active role in the mission towards zero waste. When you buy a re.SK8 product, you are actively helping the environment.
