POP

STRENGTH

• The #2 feature of our boards • Lasts longer • Less razor tail

• Due to the increased strength from the density of bamboo, skaters can push the envelope of difficulty, while maintaining the confidence that their board won’t break

SUSTAINABILITY

• We chose bamboo because of its endless renewability as a resource, and its minimal effect on the environment. • Skateboarding took over flooring in 2008 as a major contributor of maple deforestation, our mission became to explore other ways of making skateboards. • Bamboo not only aids in creating better boards, but is also a socially responsible choice.

GIVING BACK Giving back to the community is an integral part of who BambooSK8 is. We officially launched the “One Deck at a Time� program in 2012 and since then, many decks have been supplied to at-risk youth. In addition to our own programs, we support many charities and organizations through fundraisers, deck sales, and partnerships such as the ones below.

BAMBOO DECKS

All BambooSK8 decks have a small noninvasive heat stamp. This lets our customers feel confident that they are getting a legitimate quality product straight from our factory.

All BambooSK8 decks are a combination of bamboo and maple resulting in the strongest and most durable board yet. The bamboo provides for not only sustainability, but extra flex and pop with two layers of maple for extra concave. Short decks are 6-ply, longboards are 5-ply as shown below.

REVIEWS We [Sutsu] have been using BambooSK8 for our deck manufacturer for the last two years and every season we get new converts to bamboo. BambooSK8 decks are by far the best decks on the market. They are stronger, got more pop and are far more sustainable than the standard maple. Over in the UK, Bamboo decks are still in their infancy, but each season we get rave reviews from skaters all over the country. Once they have tried Bamboo they never go back. -- Sutsu - London, England

“BambooSK8 decks are the best mixture of pop, feel, strength, and durability. My deck lasted me a good strong two months. How long did all my maple boards last? Just about a month and by that time they were thrashed. BambooSK8!” - Jake Burns “BambooSK8 boards are so sick! I would definitely prefer them over any other deck because of their crazy pop, amazing concave, and of course the fact that they are made out of bamboo; helping the environment! :)” - Adrian Munoz “If you are reading and looking to buy a deck... This board is so worth it... it’s light, has a lot of pop, and it is really strong. My kick flips are triple kick flips now. In a competition between maple vs. bamboo... Bamboo wins hands down! No question about it, BUY THIS DECK! -Jaymes Houser
