Skateboards from recycled paper

paper

Version 2 Lab doens’t have much of a web site, but they have put images and videos on Facebook. Of course, there’s a kickstarter in the works too, but it’s not live yet. They sure are shiny. 5 lbs of lacquer may offset the carbon footprint benefits of recycled paper. Check out their “Maco” board (after the jump or on Facebook) which is actually kind of cool, except shouldn’t it be called “Mako?” It’s odd actually, the only picture on the web site make them look crappy arts & crafts projects, while the extra photos on Facebook make them look like polished products.

- Thanks to Jeff Barrett for the tip.

    That actually looks more like a skate (or ray) than it does a shark.

    It’s really a cool concept. I just wish companies like this were more sharing when it came t information about the production process. I mean, hardly any of these companies really go anywhere, so they would make a much greater impact if they just shared what knowledge they had for others to expand upon.

    Curious to know how much resin one board takes.

  3. Hi Skate and Annoy from Version 2 Lab. To follow up on some comments I wanted to shed some light on how these boards are made.
    Content: 100% Recycled Paper
    Adhesive: USDA BioPreferred Certified Epoxy

    We are working hard with manufacturer’s that can produce the boards prior to our kickstarter release. Let us know if you have any comments and check out our Facebook page for updated prototypes in our album
