UH students win $10K at SXSW with cool skateboard creations – KHOU

HOUSTON -– Some creative University of Houston students are celebrating a win at South by Southwest with their small, colorful skateboards.

The students say they went to the festival on whim and met actors like Zac Efron and Seth Rogen, showing off their “Kandy Kruisers” skateboards along the way.

At the last second, they even entered the product in a contest for start-up businesses – winning $10,000.

They say the money will go toward production of new skateboards – as they’re currently out-of-stock. They’ll also work on another, slightly larger version.
