There's also plenty of exciting new shapes to try.
Clean oceans and waterways are key to our sport, and that's why Surftech is building boards with the environment in mind. We now have over 20 models across the Surftech, NSP and BARK lines that feature the ECOBOARD stamp.
"An ECOBOARD is a high-performance sustainable board. ECOBOARDS have the same technical performance attributes as any modern water-sport board, while having reduced environmental and toxic impacts – through the use of more sustainable materials and manufacturing processes." -SustainableSurf.Org
On top of that, we have also parntered with BLOOM Foams to offer deck-pads that are partially made of algae. The algae is a renewable ressource harvested from lakes and ponds at high risk of algal bloom. The filtered freshwater is then returned back into the environment. Not only the water is cleaned from excess algea but it's use in deck-pads allow us to diminish the use of petroleum based materials.
