Guests of The St. Regis Houston are invited to a private workshop with skateboard artisans, Side Project Skateboards, hosted by founder Jake Eshelman. Inspired by the original skateboard creation of the 1940s, Side Project Skateboards creates handmade, vintage inspired Skateboards. Guests are invited to Side Project Skateboards workshop to create their very own skateboard. They will meet Eshelman and some of the Houston artisans that share his workshop, before he guides them through the wood samples, which will become part of their very own board. Every piece of reclaimed wood is hand selected for quality and its unique beauty. Once designed, each skateboard will take approximately 3 weeks to complete, and this board will then be shipped directly to the guest.
