LA NATURE COMME HERITAGE
They have lived on this earth for over 60 million years. Feet in the sand, a few kilometers from the ocean. They have withstood all the storms and all the follies of men. They gave us their greatest gift, an incredible material, with countless uses. It took men, the heirs of a long forgotten tradition, to revive and sublimate cork. Today we are proud to present the first pad made from French cork oaks. At the heart of a relocated industry, our mission is to support and perpetuate French know-how by offering surfers the best alternative to preserve the ocean.
Une production locale
Today, the Liège de Gascogne sector is in full swing. By working with French manufacturers, we want to relocate our production in France and encourage the cork sector so as not to depend on imports from Spain and Portugal. The Region and the Department of Landes are partners in relaunching this sector.
Our partner is a company labeled “ Living Heritage “, a mark of recognition from the State set up to distinguish French companies with exceptional know-how. This pad is an exceptional product.
Innovation serving the environment
The Progression Pad has been designed to help surfers learn to better position their back foot. He settles on his board in two stages.
- First the heel and the first part are glued only. This will force the surfer to move his foot back if he wants to feel the grip of the cork and thus adopt good habits.
- Once this positioning has become second nature, it can add the second part.
Un impact environnemental minime
Our traction pads, made in the Landes, are made from 65% recycled corks, 25% waste and 10% cork bark. The circular economy is at the heart of our challenges and offering products made from recycled materials allows us to reduce our carbon emissions by 62% compared to surf accessories which come 95% from Asia.
The recycled corks are sorted, cleaned, processed directly at our suppliers. The recycled material guarantees our pads a very low environmental impact. Natural cork comes from the Landes culture, the most northerly of Europe. We can thus offer you a manufactured accessory that will have traveled less than 300km for its manufacture.
