SuperGreen Boards: Bamboo Skateboards

Another option for environmentally conscious skater dudes and dudettes: SuperGreen Boards, which manufactures eco-friendly custom longboards, slalom, and speedboards out of bamboo.

For added strength, a fiberglass alternative, made entirely of finely woven strands of bamboo fiber, is bonded to the board using very-low-Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) epoxy. The company says it wants to convert from low-VOC to a soy-based epoxy as the technology becomes available. ::Super Green Boards
