Shaun Thomas and Bamboo Skateboards have now teamed up to offer his wave sculptures and modern coastal art into a line of quality Bamboo longboards and cruisers, not just meant as your next wave art piece but for cruising around and enjoying the outdoors. For the first run of boards, Shaun decided to go with one of his earliest original coastal sculpture pieces, “Sunset Peak“. This timeless and classic design fits beautifully with the Pintail longboard deck. The top of the board features a sandy clear grip tape with a small decal of the back’s design, along with the artist’s signature. Designed for controlled cruising and premium carving, this 44″ Pintail is an all around crowd pleaser.
WHY BAMBOO? Shaun Thomas selected San Diego based skateboard manufacturer, Bamboo Skateboards because of their decisions to manufacture their boards with an endless renew-ability resource, Bamboo. It not only aids in creating better boards but is also a socially responsible choice with it’s minimal effect on the environment. When skateboarding surpassed flooring, as one of the major contributors to maple deforestation, Bamboo Skateboard’s mission became to explore other ways of making skateboards. Bamboo is a type of grass: cut it down and it grows back stronger than before. It’s not endangered, prevents soil erosion, requires no toxic fertilizers, and is lighter and stronger than steel itself. All Bamboo skateboards and long-boards are harvested from managed farms which have a minimal effect on the environment. Since 2008, Bamboo has gained a loyal following of Eco-conscious fans around the world. Bamboo has grown in recognition and popularity in skate shops across the world for our innovation, mission, and quality. Not into skating but interested in hanging this as your next pintail longboard art piece? You can now purchase just the deck with hanging hardware without the trucks and wheels.
