Considering the fact that bamboo grows much faster than trees, i.e. 60 cm (24in.) or more per day, it is undeniably a sustainable building material. Anyhow, with their intent to explore new vistas for its application, we have seen designers utilizing it for myriad purposes in recent times, which include furniture, smartphone cases, and now… longboards. Yeah, GoldCoast Skateboards, a Salt Lake City and California based company has been creating longboards, cruisers and transition skateboards from bamboo for quite some time now.
The bamboo longboards are more flexible yet tougher than those, available on the market. Flaunting neat designs, the GoldCoast longboards are cold pressed and precision cut to ensure perfect shapes. Designed for a more stable ride, the longboards feature a longer wheelbase, wider deck and yes, a sporty appearance. Available on Amazon, the GoldCoast longboards promise to take you to your destination “with a trick or two in between.”
