About

Constantly creating new items made from recycled skateboards.

Freedom, friendship and individuality were a few of the rewards for shredding the streets, parking lots and drainage ditches where I grew up.
I would also gather whatever wood I could and build launch ramps for us to skate all day and night.
After going really fast and blasting off the tip of the ramp, you end up at least 5 or 6 feet off the ground before you land.
Landing the wrong way is what caused all of my broken boards which I promptly nailed to my wall with pride. Finding another one was a chore at times but it made me more resourceful. Regrettably all of those decks are long gone now but are replaced by new art made from recycled skateboard decks on new walls.

In early 2009 I started to cut up broken skate decks trying to design wall art. Fitting together the pieces that I cut out and sanding the edges with a disc sander formerly used for granite, I started to see birds in the shapes that were fitting together.
So I began to make bird shaped wall art out of the recycled skateboard pieces. After a few sales on Etsy and some custom orders the shop gained some good positive momentum.
Since then I haven't stopped with no plans to ever do so. Adding jewelry and accessories to my inventory including rings, pendants, beaded necklaces, dread beads and bracelets has stoked a whole new fire.
The best way to see how I started and where I'm at now with recycled skateboard design, is to look at my ''sales'' section on Etsy as well as my Skatebird pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
