This is an awesome project. The final product reminds me of the everslick boards of the past. Not only did those things slide like nobody's business but the plastic layers also prevented chipping (and possibly breaking) and made the boards last longer, too. These boards here probably have the same advantages going for them, too.
I love it when my interests and passions come together in a cool way. Most skaters I know are pretty cool people and are generally well informed and concerned about a bunch of issues including our environment. Kudos to Mac Premo and Don Sanford for getting together and making the world better. They did not just recycle trash that was going to landfills as skateboards but they also used them with some charities in very positive ways. Well done.
