The Element Recycled Board Program is designed to breathe new life into old boards. We take dilapidated decks and cut them into shape, giving each one a second chance to hit the streets.

Every board comes complete with fitted trucks, wheels made from recycled materials, and are adorned with our signature green bolts.

No Board Left Behind boards are original vintage-condition items. Each is 100% unique and handpicked for you from limited stock. Yours will vary in graphic and degree of distress, making them one-of-a-kind.

How we do it

  • First


    Nick Garcia’s board lived a long life while filming for FUTURE NATURE. His board was beat to the point of it needing replacement.

  • Second


    The old board is then cut into a new custom shape, giving it a nice clean edge, and is shaped like a brand new cruiser.

  • Third


    All new components are added including, made-to-fit trucks, new bolts and bearings, and bug poop wheels (no joke)! The wheels are made from cornfed bug waste, and processed into urethane.

  • Fourth


    The end result is a reincarnated board with a new lease on life, and ready to hit the streets! No Board Left Behind.


Team Edition Models

This first round of limited edition boards come to you straight from the editing-room floor. These are the boards the team rode while filming for FUTURE NATURE, The Element Am Video. Only one from each rider is available, making them uber-special. Choose from boards ridden by Nick Garcia, Julian Davidson, Evan Smith and Boo Johnson.

With the Team Edition boards from NO BOARD LEFT BEHIND you can ride what the team rides, literally. Each and every one of these board comes with a unique story, and a letter of authenticity to prove it.
