My very first snowboard was a Nitro Alias 152, which I bought in Canada nine years ago. It was purple and pink, with a flame-throwing bunny rabbit on the front. It’s lived in my parents’ attic for about seven years, and only saw snow again this December when South London got that massive dump, and I’d had to rescue my mum from the snow. It was nostalgic taking the Alias out of the attic, and I realised that it would be impossible to get rid of, so there had to be some use for it. In comes Ride Revival.
Ride Revival has the ultimate answer for recycling snowboards – by making them into household furniture – chairs, benches, coffee tables, wall art – whatever you want them to do with it, they can do it. And if you want to do it yourself, they offer you the kits to make your own.
Ride Revival is run by snowboarders with the aim to recycle snowboards into products you can use every day in your house. They can also do custom art work to cover the board, so if you don’t like the design or stickers on your board any more, they can design a new cover for you.
And if you’ve any old boards you want to get rid of, you can cash them in at Ride Revival too! Just head to www.riderevival.com to find out more.
