Ride Revival was born to breath new life into something which has given people lots of enjoyment, whether hitting big kickers at dry slopes, jibbing in the fridges around the UK or spending time shredding on the mountains.

As boarders Ride Revival understanding the impact it has when items are not recycled, they re-use boards to make contemporary furtinture and wall art.

We as boarders see the importance of snowboard companies using green material and more ethical ways to manufacture boards but more effort needs to be implemented in the disposal of these products once we think they are unusable.

Ride Revival are working closely with dry and indoor snow slopes around the UK to effectively recycle boards, boots and bindings so it reduces the environmental impact and also gives people an opportunity to have a piece of rad art work or furniture. How many of us have maybe damaged or broke a board and not really known what to do with it.

The majority of time you may try and fix it but it isn’t really worth it due to the financial cost, time or effort so it gets thrown away. We spend lots of time and money on our boards and some of our best memories are when we look at them especially when we may have had them for a few years, so throwing away a board which may have been the board you first started to begin snowboarding on, you kept for the graphic and don’t ride anymore or you have been waiting for an opportunity to continue the good memories and not have it gathering dust in your spare room, garage or attic.

So maybe furniture or wall art isn't your bag Ride Revival would like to offer your old board a loving new home, they want to repair the core shots, chips and pealing laminate and reincarnate your ride. Your old ride could become a work of art.

They will be releasing a recycle my board scheme, a two step process where you fill a form, send them a couple of pictures and get a price. Then they send a courier to collect your board, verify your board then send payment. Even if your board is not in a condition to sell why not get in contact and they can see what they can do you may be surprised!

If you’re looking to customise your own board into something usable in your own home check out the TRI-frame design these come in a range of colours which come with the Ride Revival logo laser etched.

GB put a few questions to Ride Revival so here goes!

GB: So where did Ride Revival come from?

RR: It kind of started when I upgraded my board. I was left with a worn and used board that didn’t really fancy passing on through an auction site due to the damage. I found there were no places for me to correctly recycle my board and decided to look for alternative uses and started to come up with ideas, I built four styles of chair frames before settling on the unique TRI-Frame.

GB: So what can we see from Ride Revival in the future?

RR: We would like to get as many boarders involved with the recycling scheme we are rolling out within the dry and indoor slopes across the UK. We feel that making more people aware that there is an alternative to just throwing boards away and also that there is an alternative to just keeping a board in the garage or attic.

GB: I know many people out there have had broken boards do you use them?

RR: We are happy to have you donate a broken board as we have other projects upcoming which we want to continue the recycling aspect but put it to use in other areas than furniture.

GB: Can you tell us?

RR: You will have to wait and see.

GB: We know that lots of people use snowboards as shelves in their homes, offices or work spaces. Are you going to anything similar?

RR: We want to really make furniture which is designed for boarders, we are updating our product range through our website on a regular basis so keep your eyes open on www.riderevival.com

We have teamed up with Ride Revival to make a GONEboarding chair which will have a custom graphic and we will be giving this away in a competition soon!
