Local 11-year-old Carson Kropfl is working to grow his new business, which takes recycled skateboard decks and repurposes them to fit into small spaces—including school lockers.
Kropfl, in a video he posted on YouTube, said he would like to make 200 Locker Boards by Christmas. He has started a grassroots funding portal on his website.
Kropfl is scheduled to be at the Nov. 6 Wonder Pop-Up Market from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Casino San Clemente, 140 W. Avenida Pico. Proceeds from the event benefit the Nick Pasquale Foundation.
“Elementary, middle and high school students can ride Locker Board decks to and from school, but must keep the boards stored in their backpack or locker while on campus,” a disclaimer on the Locker Board website stated. “Some college campuses allow students to ride boards on campus to and from class. Rules vary depending on schools/colleges, so make sure to check with your school.”
