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.

How Go Skateboarding Day began

Go Skateboarding Day was proposed by Don Brown and formally established by the International Association of Skateboard Companies in 2004 to promote skateboarding and make it more accessible to everyone.

It coincides with the longest day of the year, and it is by design. Since June 21 is the longest day of the year in Continental USA, it means everyone can spend more time skating outside.

What started out as a few small skate sessions in some parts of the US became a worldwide celebration.
