Worthy Skateboards began in a garage on the Gold Coast, Australia, building small wooden skateboards from used wood and textiles.
Things evolved rapidly over a couple of years, turning a part-time hobby into something entirely original; environmentally conscious vintage skateboards made from sustainable, eco-salvaged and recycled timbers.
Worthy Skateboards now handcrafts boards in a range of shapes and outlines, from vintage replicas to longboard cruisers.
We offer environmentally conscious riders a choice of available sustainable and unique salvaged and recycled timbers, focusing on the unique characteristics of the wood from which the boards begin.
WOOD IS G O O D.
Worthy goes to great lengths to source rare sustainable, eco-salvaged or recycled Australian timbers; ethically procured as a result of sustainable plantation forestry, storm and cyclone damage, erosion, government earthworks and road clearing.
To supplement quality eco-salvaged stock we use ethical, sustainable plantation timbers that are chain-of-custody certified by the Forest Stewardship Council of Australia (FSC). Worthy's recycled timber boards also feature reclaimed and/or re-purposed timber materials from the local building and construction industry.
We start with a solid eco timber or recycled blank of your choice, shape to your chosen outline, sand and finish with clear varnish and top it all off with local Gold Coast beach sand deck grip.
Blending original 1960's and 1970's skateboarding and surfing culture with environmentally conscious components & practices, Worthy's eco skateboards and environmentally friendly apparel are designed to recreate the look and feel of skateboarding when it first began.
We place a large emphasis on environmentally conscious and eco-friendly materials and production, and try to align ourselves with companies doing the right thing by our environment.
So, where it can be done with minimal harm to the environment, we're doing it; and if it can be done better, we're working on it.
