From the SEA to the STREET

The company has collected 80 tonnes of nets since it went into business. The nets are cleaned, shredded and then placed in a granule-making machine, which produces small balls of material then pressed in Santiago de Chile in a steel mold. It takes 3 m2 of nets to make one skateboard. Compared to the production of traditional skateboards, the method reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 70%. The wheels are 30% vegetable oil and have a 100% recycled mechanism. Once finalized, the boards in the shape of long fish with colored scales sell for between 130 and 200 dollars. "From the sea to the street" is the "mantra" of the company, which is now based in Santiago de Chile and Ventura in California.
