    A short edit from surfing the reto fish the other day(the surfboard is made from old broken recycled skateboard decks) Its not the cleanest days or big waves, pretty average here. but it is what we surf here in the north of Finland. Our waves here depend on storms and a swell window is mostly only couple of hours. It is actually really fun and fast and turns good. And ofcause, it feels different cause it is wood and hollow, but in a good way. The biggest suprice so far is that it is possible to duck dive it, even though its has quite some volume. The board is made 100% from old recycled skateboard decks. 6'4 x 23 x 2 3/4 Watertemp 5 degrees. a BIG, BIG thanks to everyone involved, you know who you are! We will also drop another edit later in the fall. Stay tuned. Music by The Vibratones / www.facebook.com/TheVibratones Edit and Camera : Ludde Nylund / Rebecka Nylund

        • RETO - The Recycled Skateboard Surfboard


          from www.KORDUROY.tv Added

          REcycle for TOmorrow // RETO. Dating back to December, 2011, Björn Holm has been hard at work collecting broken skateboards from friends, relatives, and fellow skaters in his community. His mission: a daunting DIY project of building a 6'4" fish made exclusively from old skateboards. This is not something you'd expect from a former professional motocross rider from Finland. But with studies in furniture design and an interest in board building, he utilized these skills to piece together a 20 pound, hollow surfboard out of material (skateboards) that essentially have no straight lines. The result: a colorful, 100% recycled surfboard. Enjoy Björn's story... NOTE: After this video was created Bjorn has tested the board, and he reports that its working great! "The board is stable, easy to paddle and catch waves with. And it is such an amazing thing to ride something that you have made yourself. There really is something special about it, all the hardwork put down finally pays off."
