OUR GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES
We are building boards with the environment in mind. Recognizing that we have a duty to continually strive to lessen our environmental impact and to be transparently accountable for our business operations is our driving force. All manufacturing has an effect on the environment, and we do everything we can to reduce that impact. Investing in machinery, alternative material research, and more effiecent product logistics has had a positive impact on our production and the environment; state-of-the-art machinery has reduced waste, improved quality, and increased safety.
SUSTAINABLE SURF VERIFIED –
The ECOBOARD PROJECT™ provides the surf industry with the first independent 3rd party consumer facing “Eco-Label” for surfboards. It is designed to help individuals choose a high-performance sustainable surfboard made with the latest advancements in green chemistry and renewable materials. The ECOBOARD dramatically reduce the surfboard’s environmental and toxic impact.
BIO BASED RESIN
Surftech is innovating and producing environmentally friendlier boards derived from bio based resins (GreenPoxy®), purposed molded EPS cores and recyclable alternative materials to reduce the impact on the environment. We also build boards that last longer, fewer broken boards = less waste. We are committed surfers that are focused on keeping our oceans and planet clean.
BLOOM FOAM (ALGEA BASED DECK PAD)
BLOOM harvests algae from freshwater sources at high risk of algal blooms. Bloom harvesting process helps freshwater ecosystems by removing excess algae and recirculating fresh water back into the habitat. Select DeckPads featuring Bloom foam contains 20% algae biomass, which helps offset the use of non-renewable petrochemical ingredients
