Boardthing is a group of friends bonded with art, recycling and skateboard culture who are inspired by the potential of processing raw materials commonly regarded as waste. Not many people outside of the culture of skateboarding realizes that the life of a skateboard deck in a professional use is quite short (sometimes it might be only a few weeks). Every day, thousands of skaters in Europe produce large quantities of wood waste that Boardthing team decided to collect and creatively use following their passion. Canadian Maple, which boards are made of, is a material that has a lot of aesthetic and utilitarian value. Inspired by these facts, they created BoardThing – handmade products from discarded skateboards.
