Our deck and bottom skins are glassed externally with one layer of 4oz fibreglass. Internally they have a thin layer of Kevlar. Whilst these materials are not biodegradable they only account for 3% for the boards composition by volume. Yet these materials, especially Kevlar, enable many additional years of use compared to conventional surfboards.
The skeleton and skin cores - which represent 23% of the surfboard - are made from sustainably sourced, biodegradable Paulownia wood.
And the remaining 74% is air….
Using Kevlar not only produces incredible resistance to impact but it is also highly flexible. This translates to a lively surfboard with plenty of drive.
