Jeff Grosso Delves Into ‘80s Vert Ramp Contests in Latest Love Notes

‘80s vert ramp contests hold a special place in skateboarding’s history. While they weren’t built to last, they helped breath life back into the culture during a time when it had nearly disappeared. And the tricks conceived on these 12-foot monstrosities would later be adapted to curbs, which helped set the stage for what would ultimately become street skating as we know it today. Take a history lesson on this era gone by with Jeff Grosso in the latest installment of Love Notes.

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.
