The w o o d p o p surfboard is a hollow, skin and frame, hand-crafted eco-board that offers maximum performance with the least material impact on our planet. We believe they are the first surfboards to ever feature marquetry and almost certainly the first surfboard to incorporate metal inlay! The surfboards come with gold standard environmental credentials thereby qualifying to be numbered and registered ecoboards (www.sustainablesurf.org/ecoboard). Instead of a foam core we use wood sourced from sustainably managed forests and bio-resins instead of any petroleum-based chemicals. The board incorporates a timber fin (instead of plastic) which is glassed-in rather than sitting in a plastic insert and it has a metal leash-plug. Each board is unique and combines the three different artistic disciplines of marquetry, fine furniture making and boat building.
This is a board for life that respects our environment and a unique piece of art to paddle out on . . .
If you would like us to make you a board - please get in touch. We can make boards of every type and size - from a 5' fish to a 12' gun! We are also happy to work to a design brief and can incorporate logos, text, specific colourways etc. Please be aware there is a 10 week lead-time on w o o d p o p surfboards.
STOP THE PRESS - we will be launching our bellyboards and handplanes this Summer . . . watch this space . . .
