Skateboards are broken quite often. Usually the plywood boards are just thrown in the bin.

Here are some bags, an ipod case and some earrings  made out of recycled skate decks.

This is  publicity video where skaters get to snap there original deck  (traditionally made out of maple) in return for a new bamboo deck. Apparently the bamboo boards are stronger than the maple plywood decks.  go green , go bamboo.
