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.
