Galleria Continua Unveils Avant Garde Skate Space

Skateboarding, fine art, and architecture intersect once again with the introduction of Galleria Continua’s experimental skate space at its Boissy-le-Châtel location in France. Created by MBL architects and Bureau D. Apheceix, the structure is designed to seamlessly blend into the surrounding landscape. The Carhartt WIP team sampled the terrain during several trips captured by Maxime Verret and Romain Batard. The resulting stills and video are currently being exhibited  at the gallery under the title CONCRETE CATHEDRAL. Carhartt WIP also released a capsule collection featuring 3D renderings of the site, which are available now both in-store and online.

Watch How Old Decks Transformed into Custom Benches in this Video

Watch Welcome Skate Shop staff and their friends turn old decks into custom benches in this video released by Vans as part of their efforts to promote artists and creativity. Welcome Skate Shop is based in Leeds, UK.

What’s great about this bench is that you can remove the top (the one made with old decks) and now you have a skateable bench. It has storage too so you have a place for your new skateboards or whatever needs storing.

A skateboarder may need to replace their decks in a few months to a year, depending on how hard they grind and how often they ride. Probably millions of skateboards are discarded each year and most of them end up in landfills.

This is just one of the ways worn-out decks can be repurposed. There are also initiatives to recycle and repurpose old wheels to keep them out of landfills.
