Alternative materials

In order to minimize the footprint of our products

Surfboards and surfing accessories are mainly produced by the oil industry.

The surfing industry creates an average of 220,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

The surfing industry pollutes a lot. To reduce our impact, we source and develop alternative raw materials that allow us to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our boards are made of biosourced polystyrene foam (EPS) for some of our models or partially recycled for others. The resin is 40% biosourced and on some models we replace the central slat by natural flax and basalt fiber.
By performing the LCA of our boards we were able to identify a 20% reduction in carbon emissions compared to polyurethane foam boards manufactured in Asia.

Our pad is largely made of natural and recycled material as it uses cork. With 80% recycled cork we reduce our carbon emissions by 62% compared to a pad made in Asia from virgin EVA foam.

Our fins are made of recycled fishing nets and are 100% recyclable. A saving of 40% of CO2 compared to fins manufactured in Asia.

Finally, our clothing line is made from organic cotton and recycled polyester, woven in Portugal and manufactured in France.

Surfboards

Our boards are made in Portugal and France. The materials used allow us to be labeled EcoBoard Project, which certifies that the carbon footprint of the board is lower than the majority of boards available on the market. CO2 savings of around 30% on a PU board (http://www.sustainablesurf.org/ecoboard/lifecycle-study/) on average.

Traction Pads

Our pad is made from recycled cork (85%) and from the tree (15%). A tree whose bark can be harvested about fifteen times during its life. It is a direct alternative to the use of petrochemical derivatives like EVA foam.
