Locker Boards were invented by 11-year-old, Carson Kropfl, from San Clemente, Ca. He wanted a skateboard that would fit in his backpack and locker. None of his boards would fit, so he decided to make one! His parents told him that he had to clean and do chores to pay for his surf lessons and surf contests. Carson hates to clean, so he asked if he could try selling his Locker Board skateboards instead.
Locker Boards are handmade and reshaped from recycled skateboard decks. At only 16 inches long they fit inside backpacks and lockers. They’re the perfect board for school and traveling...and, they are good for the planet.
Each upcycled deck has been cut, sanded, drilled, cleaned and re-painted with a clear coat. Locker Boards are the only non-folding skateboard decks on the market that can fit inside a backpack.
Carson started his company in October 2016, has made hundreds of boards and shipped them all over the country! He designed the Locker Board so it would be a versatile skateboard that's good for the planet, fun to ride and easy to take anywhere!
Due to popular demand, Madrid Skateboard Factory in Huntington Beach, Ca has taken over production and assembly of Locker Board Decks, Skateboards and Mini Cruisers. Founded in 1976, Madrid Skateboards is one of the original skateboard manufacturers in the U.S. and manufactures boards for some of the top brands in the country.
Locker Board donates $1 for every skateboard sold to the Tony Hawk Foundation - because they are focused on empowering kids through skating!
The left over pieces of skateboard decks that aren't used, are then donated to Johnson Middle School's Wood Shop Class in Westminister, CA and the students have made some amazing projects from these pieces!
