Eco-Friendly Skateboards

Comet Skateboards from San Francisco uses poplar and hickory from sustainable forests for a board’s core, topped with bamboo or maple veneer and coated with water-based paints. They’re also working with manufacturers and universities worldwide to help develop ‘green’ epoxies, reinforcements and coatings.

The boards are designed and manufactured in the world’s only solar-powered skateboard factory, in downtown San Francisco. The company is committed to manufacturing locally and sources supplies locally whenever possible. Of course, a green aura isn’t enough to sway buyers from other brands, which is why Comet also builds boards that are stronger and lighter than most.
