Santa Cruz Waves Stories: Upcycled Skate Art

Where do used skateboard decks go when they die? If they fall in the hands of Alexander Michael Wong, they’ll be reincarnated as tables, cutting boards, picture frames, coasters, bottle openers and key chains.  For the past few years, Wong has been running Upcycled Skate Art, a company that turns used skateboard decks into furniture, household items and topographical maps, among other things.  Dive into his process and what drives him to create these eye catching creations!
