WHERE WE ARE:
CURRENT MATERIALS, ACTIONS AND POLICIES
We are fully committed to THE SEARCH FOR THE ULTIMATE ECO-CONSCIOUS SURFBOARD. As such, all our boards are certified by the Ecoboard Project (an initiative by Sustainable Surf). At the moment, all our boards have the Level 1 certification (for using an ecological core – we use Polyola PU Eco-Blanks, the most ecological PU blank on the market). We are proud for this achievement but this is not enough. We still need to improve our processes. Apart from the “problem of the core” we need to address the “problem of the resins”. To better address the ecological consequences of the surf industry we need to upgrade our lamination processes to the exclusive use of bio based resins. This will allow us to qualify for the Gold Level certification, which we estimate will be happening fairly soon.
We are committed for an entire plastic free shipping for all products that leave our facilities. For the packaging of our surfboards we are partnering with Flexi-Hex – cardboard honey comb sleeves that protect all boards during shipping.
For each board (or skate, or bicycle) that leaves our facilities we will be planting 1 tree with One Tree Planted.
All wood used in our production (e.g., skates) is made with FSC certified wood.
