Skateboards are Green

Making Skateboards is even GREENER!


Skateboards are Green


Roarockit Skateboard kits are composed of locally and Canadian available materials. Especially the all-important maple veneer, which is grown, harvested and milled in the very long, very cold winters of north eastern Canada by an SFI certified mill.


Skateboards contribute many environmental benefits to our society:

  • Skateboards are non-powered eco-friendly transportation

  • Skateboards are a non-cost form of exercise


Roarockit Skateboard Deck Kits and the skateboard carbon footprint:

  • the best skateboard wood in the world is grown in an SFI certified mill, (specifically Canadian) hard maple veneer

  • maple logs are simply rotary cut into sheets and kiln dried

  • wood is not heavily processed with bleaches, pesticides and glues (like bamboo)

  • no power tools are used for this deck building process

  • kit parts are all (or almost all) reusable and or recyclable

  • kits are designed for years of use

  • kits can be used for other laminated projects, not just skateboards

  • finished decks are built to last many years, not disposable

  • hand deck building supports local businesses and workers

  • hand deck building promotes do-it-yourself projects instead of offshore and off the shelf purchases

  • custom deck building provides a potential local business to small builders

  • using locally grown, harvested and manufactured products keep our local economies strong
