Pourfard was 18 years old when he made his first guitar. “I wanted to build something I couldn’t buy that was sentimental to me. I passed by the old stack of skateboards my brother and I accumulated over the years and that was it,” he told Cool Material.

All of the boards are donated to him by skate shops, distributors, skaters and fellow board recyclers.
