Kevin Ahearn and David Stover, from the class of 2007, are here visiting Lehigh today. Here to speak in Packard Lab, these mechanical engineers just launched their dream start-up firm in Chile with partner Ben Kneppers from Northeastern University.

Bureo Skateboards are made out of recycled fishing nets and the process is quite sustainable. Fishermen can drop their old nets off at several different points along the Chilean shoreline. These drop points make it easy for the fishermen to recycle their nets. This recycling program keeps plastic garbage out of the ocean while providing durable and raw materials for the skateboard fabrication.

While on campus, Ahearn and Stover took time to with students, including one of our newest—Taryn Sammet, pictured above with her mom Elissa Karasin-Samet. Taryn, of Sanibel, Florida, just enrolled today— Welcome to Lehigh! We’ll see you at MOOV In this fall!
