Side Project Skateboards

We are loving these handmade, vintage-inspired skateboards by Side Project Skateboards. Taking inspiration from the skate culture in the early 60ís, each board is handcrafted from start to finish using found and recovered hardwoods, with each one bearing itís own unique profile and wood pattern, ensuring no two boards are alike. The boards are handmade in Houston, Texas, in limited quantities, and are available as deck only or as a complete skateboard. via
