Music and skateboarding have always gone hand in hand. Nick Pourfard makes the ultimate connection by creating guitars out of recycled skateboards. Nick combined his passions as an industrial design student teaching himself woodworking, illustration, and 3D design, ultimately turning that project into a business, Prisma Guitars. We spent a few days with Nick in his workshop in San Diego to document the process and learn more about his overall design philosophies. We’re hitting the road with goodbrands, purveyors of damn good weed, this summer to round up California’s best local culture in some of our favorite spots. Come hang, meet good people, and see what these cities are all about. First stop: San Diego. Film by Han-Su Kim Additional filming by Grant Schubert Photography by Ryan Allan
