Oceanside, California (PR Buzz) October 7th, 2011: BambooSK8, a leading developer of eco-friendly bamboo skateboard decks, will be an impressionable exhibitor at the Sacred Craft surfboard expo at the Del Mar fairgrounds October 8-9th. The revolutionary companies bamboo longboards and skateboards are proof that progress is being made in the skate industry towards more eco-conscious business practices. “The time is now to start making incremental changes in our industry and lead a new generation of responsible consumers,” say’s Geoff Koboldt, President of BambooSK8.
BambooSK8 will maintain an exciting booth in the “skate zone”, a section that will feature ramps, a longboarding slalom course, and tarp surfing. Along with surfboard shapers, designers, and manufacturers they will be spreading the word about how the surf and skate communities are becoming more eco-conscious and changing the paradigm. They will also be showcasing a range of longboards from the 31.5” locker cruizers to the 42” double-kick, as well as the new “Ride for Earth” skateboard deck, which plants a tree in Europe for every deck sold. Forward-thinking products such as their wheels, made from 20% corn; which helps to displace the petroleum in traditional urethane wheel production, will also be seen on their completes.
Why skateboards at a surf expo? Mark Olson, Operations Manager, at BambooSK8 explains, “Surf brands, such as Lost, are expanding into the skateboard market which is why one of the most impactful surf events, Sacred Craft Expo, has expanded this year into having a skate zone. With us being a local and growing manufacturer of skateboards with a longboard division it is important to support our industry as it grows and progresses.” BambooSK8, like the surfboard manufacturers that will be present, is focused on being at the forefront of innovation and eco-friendly practices.
The Sacred Craft surfboard expo will feature over 150 booths, making it the largest consumer surfboard expo ever produced. Another highlight will be during the Sustainable Craft Showcase, an area that is dedicated to the manufacture of surfboards using more environmentally friendly materials. Surfboard designer and futurist Carl Ekstrom will be honored at the event during the “Tribute to the Masters Shape-off” where six shapers chosen by Ekstrom compete to shape the best surfboard based on an original Ekstrom design. The event, which includes a lot of music, food, surfboard shaping and giveaways starts on Saturday at 10am and ends at 6pm while on Sunday it starts at 10am but only goes until 4pm.

Our prayers are with the country of Japan and especially to our friends there who have been affected by the 8.8 magnitude earthquake. It might be ironic, but our 42″ double-kick longboard featured a Japanese tsunami graphic. We’d like to offer $10/complete or $5/deck to be donated to the RED CROSS to help the Japanese for those who purchase this tsunami deck. We thank you in advance for helping.
Specs: 42” x 9.25”
You can never go wrong with 2 double-kicks for that old school nostalgic feel of Dogtown days of summer. The art reflects a Japanese tsunami with the BambooSK8 boat making its way through the violent waters with birds flying through the horizon reflecting peace and tranquility; similar to the ecological stance BambooSK8 is taking currently as we change the paradigm to that of sustainable resources. Carve and charge through high-speed turns with no rubbing while enjoying that fresh breeze in your face as you bomb that hill or simply cruise the beach walk or college campus. The bamboo used in our decks come from managed bamboo forests and is of the highest quality; trust only the BambooSK8 name.

ASR – where do we start? Smaller than ever… You could literally walk it all in a day and be done. But what fun would that be? Lucky for us, we had a booth with other green companies in the ASEC green room, full of carnival surprises. It seemed we created a lot of excitement this year for our new 100% bamboo longboards, and of course our new 100% and 70% bamboo short decks. People were also excited to learn about the Green Washed Ritual music project – check out our music page for more details.
Our booth – bamboo fence, bamboo seats, bamboo poles, recycled wood and metal, decks suspended by fishing line, etc.
