A short documentary that explores a more sustainable alternative for crafting surfboards and snowboards while also making the boards more meaningful.
The production of foam cores requires the use of fossil fuels and energy-intensive processes. These materials are not biodegradable and can persist in the environment for hundreds of years. Disposing of foam core surfboards can lead to pollution and contribute to the growing problem of plastic waste in landfills and oceans.
Wood is a renewable resource that can be sustainably harvested, reducing the demand for non-renewable materials like foam. It is also biodegradable, meaning that at the end of its lifespan, a wooden surfboard will naturally break down without leaving behind persistent plastic waste.
Reclaimed wood have a timeless and natural aesthetic that reflects a deep connection to the outdoors and it’s past life. The beauty of the wood grain and the craftsmanship involved in shaping a wooden board can enhance your appreciation for nature, art and the outdoor activities we use them for.
