Fittingly dubbed "Natural Skateboarding," this fully rideable skateboard deck is designed by French artist Christophe Guinet, aka Mr Plant. It's made with genuine unrefined tree bark and measures 8.38" x 31.8" with a 14.25" wheelbase. The raw, wooden elements are finished with traditional skateboard hardware, including the trucks, wheels and grip tape. Engraved "Natural Skateboarding" branding completes the look. Guinet makes the lofty claim that the piece is seen to "minimize the harmful impact on the environment" in stark contrast to the "escalation of consumerism and the race to keep producing objects which are ever newer and more technical." See detailed images below.
