Each of the SkateBacks are unique and crafted in their workshop by gluing together layers of post-industrial skateboard [4] waste. They source their scraps from skateboard manufacturer PS Stix who builds more than 4,000 skateboards every day—that’s 200 per hour! So by repurposing the team help reduce at least some of that excess waste.
