The Bourbon Barrel Board is as simple as it sounds: A skateboard made out of reclaimed bourbon barrels. The board is everything you need to shred and cruise in one eco-friendly package. We redefined the use of an upcycled material to bring you what we believe to be the most stylish board on the road. It is skateable fashion. We took advantage of the pre-existing characteristics of the barrel staves in order to simplify our design and cut out any unnecessary processes, lowering our overall footprint. The board is 29“ in length and comes in a varying width of 3.5 to 4in. We like to say the learning is in the curve, as the compound curvature hugs your foot, giving you a supreme center of gravity, and eliminates the need for grip tape!

You can place it along with a bunch of other rocks along your driveway, or somewhere in the garden close to the front door. It’ll be completely inconspicuous and no one will realize there’s a hide-a-key tucked in within one of the rocks. It doesn’t have to be just that one key, because the cavity has more than enough space for a keyring with spares of all your keys.
