Jeff Hamada of the art blog Booooooom.com (that's seven o's - I counted) has a pretty nifty "Hack Job" contest going on. You have till Sept 10 to submit your own skateboard-design. It doesn't have to actually function as a skateboard, only to look like one:
"It's pretty much just taking junk or random materials and turning it into skateboards," Hamada told AOL News. "I want to see people be creative."
Submissions for the "Hack Job" contest already include an homage to pain in skateboarding, featuring a Band-Aid as a board and two pills for wheels, a classic submission made by an adolescent skater who bolted wheels to a 2-by-4 and a business-themed entry in which a contestant turned his laptop into a board and photographed himself skating in business attire.
This one above, the banana skateboard, was the brainchild of Brian Tellock.
