"There is so much beautiful material inside the boards that are not visible until you really start to work with them. The sanding makes the colors pop different as well, I like that!" More than 50 recycled skateboards and six months later, Björn Holm took his surfboard out in the water for a maiden voyage. Skateboarding came from surfing, so the ambitious design student has helped complete the circle with his thesis project called RETO, which stands for REcycle for TOmorrow.
