Have you ever been driving along and saw an old, falling down barn or house and thought: "I could use this wood to make a gnarly skateboard?"
Oh, well I thought it was a cool idea. The Olwood Skateboard company uses reclaimed and recycled wood (from abandoned buildings and unused timber) to make the most skateboards that are good for the environment, and good for skate rats.

THE OL' RABBLE ROUSING
This amateur skating competition is more radical than bingo night at an old folks home. The Ol' Rabble Rousing is Olwood's attempt to connect with local skating communities, as well as a means to promote themselves by sponsoring local talent. This press kit that includes a DVD of the Olwood skate team, a brochure about the event, and little finger boards with Olwood designs on them. Also present in the pictures are invites to participants and some dirty old wheels.
This accordion-folded brochure invites amateur skaters to the contest. This slide shows both sides of the invite.
The posters to the right would hang up at skateparks and skate shops. It also details the competitions, though this time it's more directed at spectators and not the press. Scroll through the image gallery to view the posters.
