Recycling skateboards is all the rage lately, but these tiles are the coolest upcycled product we’ve seen to date. Art of Board is a lifestyle and design brand that embodies the creative spirit, freedom and individuality of skateboarding. The group’s hard and soft goods pay homage to a used skateboard deck’s scratches, gouges and worn graphics – capturing the true soul of skateboarding. Creators of the first-ever skateboard recycling movement, I Ride I Recycle, the movement allows skateshops, parks, board manufacturers and individual riders to be part of the brand’s designs by recycling their skateboards instead of tossing them in the trash. The brand’s goal is to keep wood waste out of landfills, support skateshops and parks, and empower youth. In addition to turning them into wall and floor tiles, the designers make iPhone cases, key rings, and a smorgasbord of other coolness. How do you say Love?
