About Bureo

Bureo designs and manufactures a unique line of sustainable skateboards. Bureo’s innovative boards are manufactured in Chile through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, Chile’s first ever fishnet collection & recycling program. Net Positiva provides fisherman with environmentally sound disposal points, while Bureo receives highly recyclable and durable raw materials. By offering recycled high quality products, Bureo enables ethically conscious consumers to support recycling development and job growth for local inhabitants.

The name ‘Bureo’ comes from the language of the Mapuche, the native Chileans, and means ´the waves’. Selected in honor of the Chilean people, the name represents our mission. Just as a wave originates from a disturbance of wind along the ocean surface, Bureo is starting with a small change in an ocean of plastic. Through time and energy, the waves of Bureo will develop the force required to cause real change.


Our shop is currently under construction. Support our Kickstarter to help us raise funds for our first production run, and get your hands on one of our first boards! ‘The Minnow’ is the first recycled fishnet skateboard, and is made from materials sourced from coastal communities in Chile through Bureo’s 'Net Positiva' program. After months of R&D and support from amazing industry partners, we have created what we believe is the ultimate cruiser skateboard.
