broken arm, keep practicing...

by

When I was a kid (steel-wheeled wood deck radio flyer skateboards), my Uncle broke his wrist, teaching his kids. My dad, therefore, never let us learn to ride skateboards. We grew up in Southern California. I am not letting fear get in my wy now, and have asked for one of these boards for my 55th Birthday this month! Heck, you could slip in the tub and break your arm! How much fun is that?More > < Less

Bureo - Recycled Fishnet Skateboards

About Bureo

Waves of change

Working in Chile as an environmental consultant, Ben Kneppers saw the immense amount of waste discarded by the Chilean fishing industry. Living in Australia, he and friends Kevin Ahearn and David Stover saw enough cheap plastic skateboards cruising the streets to want to create a better option. Inspired to initiate change, they quit their jobs and devoted themselves to solving both problems with Bureo.

The "Tres Gringos Locos" as the natives call them, set up in Chile to create the Minnow, an eco-friendly skateboard made of discarded fishnets. They established "Net Positiva," Chile's first-ever fishnet collection and recycling program. It gives fishermen environmentally sound disposal points, and Bureo durable raw materials for their boards.

Each recycled skateboard consists of 30 square feet of fishnet, 30% veggie oil, and 100% recycled core wheels. The packaging is 100% recycled, too. To date, Bureo skateboards have saved 10 tons of fishnet waste from entering the oceans.

Bureo even caught the attention of Patagonia who invested through its "$20 Million and Change Fund" which help innovative startups develop solutions to environmental crises.

The name "Bureo" in Mapuche, the language of Chilean natives, means "the waves." Every wave starts as a change along the ocean surface. Bureo has started a wave of positive environmental change, and it's sure to keep growing.
