RETO: A Surfboard Made from Recycled Skateboards
From skate to surf, the RETO (REcycle for TOmorrow) project from Björn Holm follows the circle of life in action sports. On a similar path to the work of Japanese artist HAROSHI, RETO is breathing new life into old skateboards, by recycling them for use in constructing a surfboard. The Finnish furniture designer has been collecting broken skateboards since December of 2011, and finally has amassed enough to build this colorful, and very environmentally-friendly 6’4″ fish-shaped surfboard. When you’re done watching the video, you can also check out a photographic slide show documenting Björn’s unique project here.
