Skateboards Make for Gnarly iPhone Backs

Illustration for article titled Skateboards Make for Gnarly iPhone Backs

You don't have to be a skater to like these iPhone backs. Made out of the extra materials from skateboard decks, they're a tasty addition to your handset.

They're a collaboration between Grove and Maple XO, and they double as an attempt to limit the waste produced from building about 4,000 skateboards each week. To be exact, there's enough to fill a city bus. So why not use those leftovers to make some cool iPhone backs? They're iPhone 4 and 4S compatible and come in three designs: vibrant, calm, and neutral, though each one is completely unique. Slap one on your phone with a peel-and-stick 3M adhesive. You don't even have to be able to land a ollie to appreciate them. [Uncrate]

"Each week, enough waste material is discarded from one skateboard factory to fill a city bus! SkateBacks are 100% post-industrial sweetness for your iPhone."

So sell them for 10 bucks or something. $50 for these? No thanks.
