Flax fibre cloth is an engineered reinforcement fabric made from the bast of the flax
seed plant. While flax fibre is one of the oldest cultivated fibres for textiles, it is only
recently that its use as a fibreglass substitute has been acheived. Incorporating flax fibre
cloth in the lamination reduces the use of regular glass by 1/3rd and adds a great earthy

SR GreenPoxy 56 is an epoxy resin which has up to 56% of its molecular structure coming
from plant origin. This percentage is function of the carbon origin contained in the epoxy
molecule.The final rate of the mix bio-based carbon content will depend on the
The manufacture of EPS foam does not involve the use of toxic isocyantes used in the
production of regular surfboard blanks. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is light weight
and has fantastic shock absorbing properties, making it ideal for surfboards.
EPS foam has more buoyancy and flotation increasing paddling speed and
The Surfboard Agency has teamed up with the first, independent 3rd party consumer-facing
“eco-label” for boards, the ECOBOARD Project is focused on reducing carbon footprints,
increasing the use (and reuse) of renewable, recycled and up-cycled inputs, and reducing
toxicity within the surfboard manufacturing process.
