Note to skaters – according to the Science Channel, skateboards have replaced furniture as the leading contributor to maple deforestation. The Canadian maple takes 40 to 60 years to mature before it can be cut down to make your decks. The good news? BambooSK8 is a true-green company that makes first rate skateboards that are durable, sustainable, and even stronger than maple.

Bamboo is a renewable grass that can be harvested after just five years and requires relatively little energy to produce. Most skateboards are made from maple, although there are some “hybrids” on the market that use a layer or two of bamboo, and some shams that use it only as a veneer. BambooSK8 boards are made from 100% bamboo grown in managed forests.

BambooSK8′s decks are made of three and four layers, or ply, of a certain ideal strain of bamboo that is cured a secret way (BambooSK8 is very guarded about the exact source of their bamboo). The boards are strong, since bamboo has a higher weight-to-strength ratio than maple — it takes 1639 pounds of pressure to bend bamboo versus 1450 pounds for hard maple.

In addition to being strong, the boards are light. Decks weigh between 2.5 and 2.85 pounds. Bamboo is also more elastic than maple, making these boards resilient and less likely to break. Testimonials from BambooSK8 fans on their web site gush about the boards’ light weight, unbreakability, and “pop.”

BambooSK8 is a member of the Action Sports Environmental Coalition and their commitment goes beyond the company — the owner has installed the largest residential solar panel system in California.

    This boards are tha best.the pop in the best and they are eco frendly.they last more that other boards.

  6. barry hicks September 6, 2009 at 10:33 am

    bamboosk8 makes to brand quality boards there boards have great pop great concave and high impact cause if u are a skater that wont’s go out and land these big time tricks like 360 flip or lazier flip thin bamboosk8 has the boards right for you cause concave + pop + light board = one great board to skate and to do tricks on. and befor i for get maple boards are made of maple trees and to make at least 1 board they have to cut down a maple tree that will take years and years to grow back wean u have bamboo will grow back in about 1 month or less i could be wrong but i do know bamboo can grow 2 feet a day or more so u have nothing to wore about with it effecting the eco system

    Bamboo SK8 is a very reliable board company. I recently started using their boards last year when I visited Oceanside. I was there for about a week and bought one of their boards to skate because I had forgotten mine back home in Eureka, CA. I loved it, so before I left I bought two more decks to take with me. This was about a year ago, and I still have one of the decks in my room. In the past few weeks I found Sponsorhouse, now I’m sponsored by them and very proud that I’m able to sponsor a product like theirs. The Pop and flip is amazing. Its very durable and right away you now it’s a strong deck. When I have the deck all set up I’ve noticed it’s also a much lighter overall deck. I love this board, and I have requested that my local board shop would get a shipment of their product. If you’re unsure of trying it, Buy one today and see for yourself that Bamboo SK8 is a great company!!

    So I tryed this board and and it was one of the best I have ever used. It has lasted me about twice as long as my old board and it looks good with the bamboo style.

  9. Ghino Morato September 4, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    I’ve used many different company deck brands. Mainstream brands such as Girl, Baker, Chocolate, Enjoi, the list goes on. Don’t get me wrong their boards are all pretty good, all of them having their pros and cons. Girl decks have good pop but snap really fast, Chocolate boards warp really quickly, Enjoi boards quickly lose pop so on and so fourth. Bamboosk8 decks definitely come in 1st place on my list. Besides being eco-friendly, Bamboosk8 decks have the best pop, and if you are someone who wants something to last and be affordable Bamboosk8 is what you want. If your like me and hate boards that chip after bailing on some stairs, then you want a Bamboosk8 deck. I can promise your board will snap or chip, their decks are virtually impossible to break, bamboo is significantly stronger than maple and other materials used for other brand name boards. Bamboosk8 decks are strong, durable, affordable, comfortable, and functionable. I highly recommend Bamboosk8 decks to anybody who skateboards, wether you ride street, vert, bowl, flat, or just a crusier, its just for you. Best skateboard deck, PERIOD.

    Hey everyone, i really like what bamboosk8 are doing they are using exciting ideas to develop the skatboarding industry by using a less damaging source, this means that they can continue to make quality skateboards with out needing to cut down as much trees as everyone else! which means more trees for us :D. it can only be a good thing what they are doing and i hope one day ill be able to use one of these boards. as im sure they give a good pop and last just as long as the next board, meaning by buying their boads your using half the trees to skate.

  11. fallenskater25 September 4, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    Bamboo Sk8 boards are , in my opinion, the best boards overall i have ridden, the unique feel and smoothness of the board is amazing, all skaters should try a bamboo board, because once they do, they wont want to ride any other board.

  12. dxhardy3 September 3, 2009 at 9:55 pm

    Hi, i think bamboo boards are great. I’ve been skating since i was 6 and now im 13 almost 14. I’ve herd of bamboo boards from my friend and i tried his and i loved it. As soon as i got home i bought one and landed my first varial heelflip on it. And the also really dont snap. My friend had his for the longest time and i mean sure it chipped a lil but not even much to damage the board or the board to snap. And when i got mine a year ago its the same as my friends with no chips, its like its brand new. The grip tape is awesome too. Its perfect to land tricks. I recomended bamboo boards to all my friends too cause they like it also. If you where to ask me i think that bamboo boards are simpily the BEST!

  13. jcdcskate September 3, 2009 at 7:40 pm

    Bamboo skateboards are a revolution in skateboarding. They are durable, fairly-priced boards that i would highly recommend to anybody. They give good pop, look very neat, and are very light, but durable. They are made up of seven layers of bamboo! I love BambooSk8′s skateboards!

  14. BiG Eddie B September 3, 2009 at 6:14 pm

    Bamboo SK8 is the most successful story in skateboarding in a long time. Nice job and a Maple Tree Thanks You!
    Got Bamboo!!

  15. cody September 3, 2009 at 11:37 am

    these boards ride just the same as, or better than, a maple deck…..and it takes a lot less time to grow……i personally believe these decks are a step in the right direction for skateboarding………

  16. Anthony Lopez September 2, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    Bamboo Skateboards are the best. They’re the strongest, most durable skateboards out there. Ive been seeing Bamboo boards everywhere now. Its popularity is growing like crazy. They have great pop and have great shape. Not only are they that great, they are great for the environment too. Bamboo plants grow way faster than maple trees. i thinks its pretty obvious that skateboard companies should be making Bamboo boards.

  17. dyjdyjyj September 2, 2009 at 4:27 pm

    I have a bamboo deck and its great! I just got it and it is very durable and has alot of pop. It has great concave and shape. I would definitely recommend a Bamboo Skateboard.

  18. dadsk843v3r@gmail.com September 2, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    I love these guys decks.They are very well priced and hold up good.This is a good compcany to support. Drew Dawson

  19. luke wagener September 2, 2009 at 10:57 am

    I really appreciate the good work, creativity, and quality put into these skateboards. I personally own my own Bamboo Sk8 skateboard, and I must say, its incredible. The strength and quality of these skateboards surprise me. I personally recommend these skateboards to ANY skateboarder out there, whether you ride street, bowl, flat-land, whatever you ride, Bamboo Sk8 is perfect for you, AND as you can see, its incredibly ECO-friendly.

    Thank you Bamboo Sk8
    Luke

    I purchased a bamboo board last year and i’m still riding it. the bamboo wood is very hard and durable. i can try big gaps now and never worry about snapping my board,
    I highly recommend bamboosk8

  21. skater cj September 2, 2009 at 5:06 am

    The new Bamboo skateboard is the best as it is highly sustainable, the normal boards are made wood and have a big chance of snapping when using them over a long period whereas this board is made of bamboo making it a stronger and sustainable board.

    The boards are competively priced, and i would reccomened buying one if you skate alot !

  22. ElGrego August 24, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Many people claim they like boards just because of the maker like “Hey I love Girl because that’s what I’m currently riding”. But that’s not Bamboo SK8. People like Bamboo for its pop and 100% Bamboo not because their favorite Skater is sponsored by it. Many people choose Bamboo because it’s helping the environment, many of the other brands use 7 ply maple wood and clearly don’t care as much. Now wouldnt it be nice if the whole world went Bamboo? I think so.

  23. bamboosk8er.shaggy August 24, 2009 at 6:20 pm

    i have 2 say bamboo skate is 1 of the best board companies i have ever skated there boards are so nice and have great pop. i mean it is better than a pro deck and its only 28 bucks that means i can do all of my crazy shit without spending so much for a board that cost like 60 bucks that will snap in a couple of weeks. i have told my freinds bout you guys and they r skatin ur boards 2 !!!! i was so surprised wen i first sked the deck and now i can skate knowing that this board will last longer i thank u guys 4 all u have done for all of the skaters who support the bamboo. you have been a great help to the skateboarding world and i thank you for making it 100x more fun :)

  24. bamboosk8er223 August 23, 2009 at 11:22 am

    i love your bamboo decks they have the most pop iv’e ever seen in a board and they are much much stirdier than mapple decks i would skate on bamboo sk8 for the rest of my life they are the greatest boards EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Cody_2012 August 23, 2009 at 5:20 am

    Bamboo Sk8 decks are the best decks I have used. They has better pop, more flexibility, a more natural feel. Although the boards are flexible, it does not take away from the durability of the board. The durability of the bamboo within the board is amazing. You can jump a 15 set without having to worry about impact on the board. This is due to the tightly threaded fibers of the bamboo. Maple is stiff and that is why it is know to snap, but bamboo has more flex and bend than maple, while maintaining a good stiff feeling; because of this “flex” bamboo boards will withstand a lot more bending before breaking. Bamboo S8 makes great boards, at a very affordable price. I highly recommended that you order one of these boards and experience Bamboo Sk8. Bamboo SK8 is ranked number one , in all skating types (Vert, Street, Park etc.), on my board choice list

  26. skatergrl711 August 22, 2009 at 6:46 pm

    I think that bamboo sk8 is the best company out there….
    there boards have so much pop that these are the only boards that will last for me.
    their going to CHANGE the skateboard community and start a bamboo revelution.
    I just hope that the bigger companies take a part in this eco friendly revolution.
    So if your riding maple start your own revolution today by getting a bamboo deck today.

  27. nathanf August 22, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    I have ridden many different types of skateboard, mostly larger brands (i.e. Almost, Element, Mystery, etc.). I always like to look into more eco-friendly ways of living, and since I skateboard, I though why not try to find a more environmental friendly way of skating? I started to do some research and found out that bamboo grows much quickly in much larger numbers than Canadian Maple (the standard in almost all skateboard brands). I also found out that it is not only more eco-friendly, but also much stronger. I knew before that bamboo was a very strong and flexible material, so a bamboo skateboard would be amazing. I almost immediately ordered one of these boards waited around 5 days and it was at my doorstep. I quickly gripped it up and took it outside to skate. Compared to maple this board was amazing. It had better pop, more flexibility, a more natural feel. Maple is stiff and that is why it is know to snap, but bamboo has more flex and bend than maple, while maintaining a good stiff feeling; because of this “flex” bamboo boards will withstand a lot more bending before breaking. With a bamboo board you won’t have to worry about landing to far up on your nose while skating a nice stair set. Bamboo also has much more closely threaded fibers than Maple, so it will maintain its pop much longer. The switch from maple to bamboo might feel slightly strange at first, but you will quickly get used to it. Bamboo Sk8 has made a great idea come true. They make great boards, at a very affordable price. I highly recommended that you order one of these boards and experience Bamboo Sk8.

  28. GrantFrye August 22, 2009 at 11:50 am

    BambooSk8 decks are different than any other deck I have ever skated. My bamboo deck has lasted longer than any other of my decks and still had more pop than many of my friends brand new decks. The concave of these decks are just right so that the flip of any trick comes around at the perfect time to land cleanly. Bamboo decks are just the right weight as well, not to heavy at all but just the right amount. The decks couldn’t be better, everything about them is so perfect and I highly recommend these wonderful decks to everyone. These 100% bamboo, Eco friendly decks are helping to make the skateboarding community and the earth a greener place, one deck at a time.

    Sincerely,
    Grant Frye (Age 11)

  29. solomon August 22, 2009 at 10:44 am

    Bamboo decks are the best decks every they have great pop and they are way better then maple boards. Bamboo decks last along time its like they never breack and thats a good thing and i recomend everyone to get Bamboo decks because they have good pop and land almost every trick with ez.

  30. samrulesthehouse August 22, 2009 at 10:04 am

    These boards are amazing they have incredible pop they have amazing durability and they are still good after few months of using it i can’t believe they didn’t think of building skate boards out of bamboo

  31. DanRyan August 21, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    bamboo boards are totally gnar…..they have crazy pop, im takin switchin from knee high tricks to waist height…. plus the flip/concave is rad…. turn yo kickflips into double flips like nothin. PLus the whole environment thing is sweet…. im lost in the 70s and anything green is clean with me…. totally stoked that board companies will get off that maple and killin all our forests…. The price is also good… i dont even have a job but i can always have the cash for a new one when i need it which is pretty awesome casue im not your tech skater… i love to hit things that make people say “damn!” basically, you cant go wrong with bamboo, only flaw would be with a more centralized industry for cheaper shipping and handling but thats honestly the only improvement i could think of. peace

  32. seamus August 21, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    bamboo skate decks.. this is one of the best decks. it helped me learn more improved tricks. when i first got the deck i already new i could pop way higher, the pop and pocket is the better than any other board. These boards should be put in every skate shop. I am a proud sponsored skater of bamboo sk8 and i am proud to skate on there bamboo sk8 board!

  33. sk8ergrl03 August 21, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    I just started skating a year or so ago, but I like to skate Bamboo to help the environment. i like it because it is lighter than maple and easier for me to skate. It’s got great pop and strength. switch to bamboo today!

    these decks lasts pretty long and they keep there fresh and good pop longer than a maple board.

  35. sk84g0d August 21, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    I have been skateboarding for almost 13 yrs and have broken several maple boards equaling up to hundreds of trees. about a year ago I found out about Bamboo Sk8, an eco-friendly alternative. I have rode about ten bamboo boards and have only broke one so far. They are more durable than maple. I usually end up passing my board on to another kid how needs a new board. They have great pop that lasts. They are lighter weight and stronger than maple too. Help out the environment today. Save a tree! Skate bamboo!

    I have been skateboarding for a while now and I have gone through alot of skateboards that have snapped. But after buying my first bamboo skateboard is was really impressed with the strength and pop of the boards. They are for sure my favourite skateboards. I think that making skateboards out of bamboo will also do alot for our planet. Bamboo skateboards you decks are amazing keep up the good work

  38. r3nobean August 21, 2009 at 8:53 pm

    these are the best decks ive skated in my entire life good pop i did a manuel and scraped on the ground and the tail didnt even go down in size if i were you guys i would choice bamboo over maple any day

  39. matixstreetskate August 21, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    bamboo sksateboards are the bomb!!! they have great pop even after 2 months of useage, like i have said before, i was sceptical about bamboo baords before i actually decided to get one, when i received it, i found it to be the best type of board i could have ever gotten. the boards are extremely durable, in fact bamboo is an extremely durable recourse that actaully hepls save the trees on earth and bamboo skateboards will save the future if skateboarding if they keep going like they are!!! take my advice people!!! get a bamboo skateboard! you will not regret it, i can guarantee that 100%!!!!

  40. matixstreetskate August 21, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    hey my name is james, i have been skating for years now and i have tried all the special types of decks.. eternal life and all of those, but then i heard about bamboo type decks and i was sceptic about it, but when i received my bamboo deck from bamboo sk8 co. i was astonished with its performance and style and looks…. when i had my first sesh with it, all of my friends said they thought it was a nice board… i have had it about close to the 2 month point and the board has lost no pop and the concave is still exactly the same as it came… i have landed some pretty major tricks off of some pretty big ledges and gaps and when a regular board should snap the bamboo board hasnt… i would definately reccommend a bamboo board to anybody who loves to skate and is willing to stick with skating for a really long time….

  41. Jon Christiansen August 21, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    I have just recently started skating bamboo decks from BambooSK8 and I am very impressed with its performance, they are lighter and stronger than normal 7-ply maple skateboards. As soon as I stepped on my board I could feel the difference from the bamboo deck from BambooSK8 than the other 7-ply maple skateboards I had skated before. I found it easier to learn new tricks, and It was so light I could ollie almost a whole deck higher! Its also great for the environment. Bamboo SK8 boards will save the future of skateboarding and of the planet, with these boards we can do what we love and protect the planet! I would definitely encourage any skateboarder from beginner to pro to buy a bamboo deck from BambooSK8!

  42. sk8r4life966 August 21, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    bamboo sk8boards are so much better than maple plus their eco friendly. Bamboo grows much quicker and is much better for the envirment. GO BAMBOO!

  44. Tom A August 21, 2009 at 7:19 pm

    Bamboo Sk8 decks are awesome! These decks have great pop. I got my highest ollie (2 decks) on a Bamboo Sk8 deck! They also are super durable. Mine lasted 6 months! Bamboo Sk8 decks are also SUPER light! I was riding an 8, but it felt like I was riding a 7.5! Lastly, Bamboo Sk8 decks are going to save the environment. Instead of cutting down huge Maple trees, Bamboo Sk8 uses, of course, bamboo! Bamboo grows so fast that there is never a shortage of it, which really gives the environment a helping hand. Bamboo Sk8 decks are the best!

    IVE BEEN SKATING FOR A PREETY LONG TIME AND I COULD SAY THAT THIS BOARD ARE WORTH IT THEY HAVE A GREAT SHAPE AND SPECIALLY HAVE A GREAT POP WHICH CAN MAKE YOU PREFORM YOUR TRICKS HIGHER THAN LOCAL SKATEBOARDS. I AM VERY HAPPY WITCH THIS BOARDS THANKZ YOU BAMBOO SKATEBOARDS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

  50. SPG November 20, 2008 at 4:09 pm

    Bamboo is a hard and durable material, but it has very different reactions to the abuse that a skateboard is intended to take. Since I haven’t tried one of these I don’t know if a few railslides will cause the bamboo to shred into long fibers that will degrade the entire deck’s structure or whether it will wear similarly or better than a typical maple deck. We just don’t know and so it’s not the worst thing to ask these questions.
    I applaud the ingenuity of the bamboosk8, but since I’ve been involved in the action sports business for nearly 20 years I’ve seen a heck of a lot of solutions looking for problems (and looking for money) that didn’t come close to delivering. So I’m sorry if I and a lot of skaters come off a little skeptical of new “innovations”. Don’t forget that when you’re trying to ollie down a set of stairs equipment performance or lack of can be a real safety hazard.
    And yes I know that skateboarding is a safety hazard in and of itself.

  51. TJ November 19, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    I am amazed by how people are so quick to judge a new idea. What happened to praising clever ideas and solutions? This board rocks, It reminds me of my wood snow board. Very classic, Very minimal. Best of luck to BambooSK8 !!!

    I do agree in part with jshiney. Consumption is another huge part of sustainable living and it is often overlooked. As for the boards durability, bamboo is a pretty tough material, so I would think that it would be very durable and would last much longer than comparable maple boards.

    Question? – jshiney, have you had the opportunity to test this board’s durability?

  52. jshiney November 19, 2008 at 11:18 am

    Bamboo boards are pretty awesome but still can’t retain the impacts in the daily life of a skateboard. Every board that is on the market is designed to be destroyed, therefore kids must keep purchasing these on a regular basis generating the profits the companies want to see.
    For a different alternative check out http://WWW.BLACKVULTUREPRESS.COM.
    This guy is building boards that are nearly indestructible. 14-16 plys of maple that practically never lose their pop.
    buy one board, instead of 20. that would make a huge impact environmentally!

  53. theokobox November 19, 2008 at 10:46 am

    I had no idea skateboarding was popular enough again to de-forest … i use to skateboard in highscool back in New Orleans – and this makes me sad to know. most kids who skateboard seem to be slightly more socially aware about issues and i hope that they learn to skate on something that doesnt F up our planet.

  54. SPG November 18, 2008 at 11:19 pm

    It’s a nice idea but until they can get these to be affordably pressed either for or by the big skateboard companies they’re not going to make a big impact. I hope that this company can make the move to mass produce for the rest of the industry if their skateboards are actually as good as they claim. Otherwise they’ll be another tiny little company stuck in the corner of the tradeshow that all the cool kids pass by.

  55. robdav November 18, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    Is the bamboo for these skateboards processed in a way to minimize formaldehyde emissions?
