Daniel Barousse, the visionary founder of Barousse Works and a true local talent born in Lafayette, LA, has a passion for skateboarding that dates back to his early years. Introduced to the world of traditional carpentry by his father and grandfather, Daniel found his calling at the age of 11 when he discovered skateboarding. Now, he has merged his love for woodworking, modern design, and skateboarding to create Barousse Works – a company that offers affordable standing products and custom-designed pieces crafted exclusively from 100% recycled skateboards.
In an effort to promote sustainability, Barousse Works repurposes used skateboards, giving them a new life and a unique artistic expression. By doing so, they not only foster a deeper connection to the local community but also contribute to the preservation of our planet’s natural resources.
