The Bucket Board: A cruiser board made from recycled buckets

Fifteen artists from around the world were asked to repurpose daily objects and show how creativity can lead the way in encouraging people to live a greener lifestyle. The project was created by Do the Green Thing and World Wildlife Fund-UK.
Artist Mac Premo was asked to contribute to the collection, and he partnered with a home longboard builder Sanford Shapes. Together they created skateboard and longboard decks out of material only found from a dumpster. What they decided on was plastic buckets, which are used and thrown away in large numbers after any type of construction job.
Seems like a great idea, probably not the best material to use for a stiff downhill board, but as a cruiser board it works pretty damn well!
I must say, the double kick board looks like it could be a lot of fun with the right kind of setup.

@nsbdude Definitely a neat idea, I'd like to see if a bigger longboarding company use this type of thinking for their boards
i think RVRAL does the whole recycle boards thing as well, they make boards and rings, i personally wanna get a recycled skateboard ring
