The Paper Rain Project recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for a collection of longboards made from recycled Marlborough wine barrels. Not only are the hand-crafted boards aesthetically pleasing, but the use of recycled materials makes them a more sustainable form of transport.

The Paper Rain Collection is comprised of two New Zealand-based artists committed to making organic and environmentally sustainable products. Their latest endeavor involves hand-crafting beautiful longboards out of recycled Marlborough wine barrels. The French oak wine barrels used for the boards come from an organic and biodynamic New Zealand winery called Seresin Estate. The boards are then hand-shaped in the pack house of an old cherry farm and fitted with standard to high-quality trucks, wheels and bearings.

The beautiful longboards are the perfect option for consumers who are looking for a more sustainable way to travel.
