Attention all skaters – how many of you have damaged your skateboards beyond repair after unsuccessfully trying to nail a rail or grab some air?  Before you go throwing your board into landfill, you may want to put it to good use, by donating it to sustainable design company Art of Board. The gnarly design company creates stylish wall tile and surface designs from repurposed skate decks, and uses them to “deck” out everything from mirror frames to tables to kitchen splashbacks and commercial wall surfaces.

Decks can be donated to over 30 participating skate shops around the US, and portions of design proceeds go to the Tony Hawk Foundation which supports youth and public skate parks. Totally rad.
