Time for some spring cleaning folks! One of the first projects we took on when we opened our doors a year ago was finding a way to recycle broken & old unwanted decks. Each year about 2 million decks go into landfills, that's just from skate shops  So iRide iRecycle started the first ever grassroots skateboard recycling effort.

Here's what happens... you bring your broken & unwanted decks to Long's Board Shop  →  we collect the decks until we fill a box →  we ship the box to iRideiRecycle in left over deck boxes from our shipments   →   Art of Board  recycles those decks making hand cut tiles → those tiles are sold & part of those proceeds go to skate related  charities and have already helped out...

  • The Tony Hawk Foundation (Supporting Youth and Public Skateparks)
  • Stand Up for Skateparks benefiting the Tony Hawk Foundation
  • Life Rolls On (A subsidiary of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation)
  •  Just One Board (An International Association of Skateboard Companies/IASC program)
  • Johnny Romano Skate Jam for Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • Grind for Life Organization, Helping People with Cancer
  • Reid Menzer Memorial Skatepark in York, PA

Skate Tiles from Art of Board

So this spring we're taking it one step further and asking you to bring in your broken and unwanted decks between March 30th & April 30th and we'll keep a tally of how many each person brings in. The skater with the most decks in their tally by the end of the day on April 30th will win a complete set up from Long's Board Shop &  iRide iRecycle. All for your spring cleaning!
