carbon fibre skateboards (?)

the above image is from a core77 article that talks about the use of carbon fibre in skateboards. i'm not sure about that myself but i did like the image of how you lay out plys in a mould. it reminded me of a previous post (about 2 an a half years ago now!) on how to build a skateboard.

i think a more realistic future for skating will be bamboo skateboards, it is much closer to current plywood, and much much cheaper than carbon fibre, as well as a lot more sustainable too.
