EXPERIMENT No. 1

Skateboard Shades

Follow Shwood’s own Eric Singer as he meets up with Keith Hufnagel and others to claim the streets of LA in pursuit of Shwood’s latest experiment, sunglasses made from broken skateboard decks. Crafted entirely in Shwood’s local woodshop, this one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses was created out of curiosity, just to see what was possible.

Thanks to Keith and the crew at HUF. hufsf.com

    I have been looking everywhere for a pair of these! I love the repurposing. I love boarding. And as an environmentalist, I love upcycling. Does anyone know where I can purchase a pair?

    Love these! what a great idea. Is their anyway you can give some insight on how you produced them? You guys inspired me, so I’m attempting a similar idea for an engineering class project.
