The Port-A-Board is the world’s first and only portable skateboard designed to come apart and go together in seconds without the use of any tools. Once apart, the board conveniently stores in special compartments in the backpack or carrying case, leaving plenty of room for books and school supplies. It is available in nine colors, and kids can customize the board to the colors of their choice since all board pieces are interchangeable. “It appeals to kids’ desires to personalize and customize products to their specific tastes. It also solves the very real problem of kids not being able to bring their skateboards to schools, malls, etc.,” CEO Brett Gregory of Port-A-Board LLC told TDmonthly. The boards and accessories are currently available on the company’s website. Launch date: January 2008.
