Retro Meets Modern
Oceanside, CA – February 15, 2013: Bamboo Skateboards, world leader in eco-friendly, socially conscious skateboards is excited to release some new products in preparation for strong forecasted spring sales.
Three new short-deck graphics are being added to current lineup of 10 graphic decks: Diamond, Slash and Circle. Visual Director Jacquelyn Purvis stated, “My intention was for these simplistic logo designs of the BS series to add a bold variety of color and style to our already existing Sutsu and Charity deck series.”
Next is the release of the Mini Retro decks, which are 6” x 22.5” and are available in neon blue and green with a classic-feel Bamboo Skateboards logo. The completes feature 3” trucks, Abec 7 bearings, and 62mm wheels. These smaller decks add to the mix of bamboo skateboards, which include 7.5”, 7.75”, 8”, 8.25”, 8.25” and a 10” pool deck. The Mini Retro deck was inspired by combining the modern trend of bold and bright neon colors with the classic style of the old school boards of the 60′s and 70′s.”
The company looks forward to launching a new line of environmentally friendly t-shirts and lightweight sweatshirts featuring all new designs for the spring 2013.
About Bamboo Skateboards:
Bamboo skateboards are manufactured from managed bamboo forests and help reduce the environmental impact against traditional maple manufactured skateboards, which often lead to maple deforestation. The boards are known for their strength, lightness and amazing POP, which is the #1 feature. The company has built into its corporate DNA a “100 decks for 1” program, in which, every 100 decks sold earns 1 free skateboard to an at-risk youth. This is coupled with the fact that most decks are directly tied to benefit charities and non profits such as World Wildlife Fund, Red Cross, Grind For Life, Standup for Skateparks, Musicares, Surfrider Foundation, etc. For more information visit: www.bamboo-skateboards.com
