     Carving the face of the wave while we ride our board can now been down with leaving less of a carbon footprint on the ocean and coastal environment. Sustainable Surf is an organization who has redefined a major aspect of the surf world, the surfboard. Founded by Kevin Whilden and Michael Stewart long time surfers created a non profit charity organizations with a mission to be the catalyst that transforms surf culture and industry into a powerful community that protects the ocean playground. The innovation and creativity has enabled them to develop  the “ecoboard”. A 100% recycled polystyrene foam core coated in a bio-basin resin. EPS (expanded polystyrene is a newer material that involves a more friendly manufacturing process resulting in a 55% reduction in its carbon footprint as compared with building boards out of the traditional polyurethan. Sustainable Surf has created the opportunity for us to continue what we love to do, just change the way we do it without affecting its awesomeness. But in fact making it more awesome. The performance of the material is why its the greenest because it so hard to break there is less chance of having to replace boards.

   To change the mind set Sustainable Surf has teamed up with The Association of Surfing Professional to provide green guidelines for all North American pro events. Achieving outstanding success diverting 90% of the waste generated in competitions. Innovation sets them apart and is a driving force with their internal initiatives. Their Waste to Waves program recycles different waste materials and makes new eco friendly surfing products, like recycling your styrofoam into eco friendlier surfboard blanks or plastic bottles refashioned into board shorts. Which is pretty rad. From the beginning Sustainable Surf set out to create a board that was lighter and would raise the standards of performance, now has inspired to raise our standards on ecological progress.
