the old skool cruiser skateboard returns skating to the authentic DIY, ‘one with nature roots,‘ that has largely been absent with the mass commercialization of the skate industry. woody skateboards repurposes wood from trees felled for city renewal in amsterdam and ultrecht. each board comes with certificate detailing the timber’s origin, age, species and exact location from which it was sourced. wood from urban environments takes on its own specific characteristics which is revealed in the shape of the boards. each board is bespoke to the material employed which ranges from elm, ash, cherry or oak. furthermore, the works were hand-shaped no more than 5 kilometers from its original location while employing CNC milled patterns for the grip.
