Sustainability


“The only thing that seperates us from the water is the surfboard your riding. There’s no reason why that shouldn't be made out of good sustainable products."

Waste to waves

How it works
1. Collect all of your EPS Waste

You probably got it when you bought a new TV, computer, or some furniture. Most cities don’t let you recycle this, and it just feels wrong to throw it into the trash can. A much higher use for this foam is to have it recycled and turned into new products, including surfboard blanks.

2. Find a local surf shop waste to waves partner

List of drop off locations HERE.

3. drop off your foam in the waste to waves collection box

We ACCEPT:
- Clean, white, #6, EPS foam from packaging materials (such as what came with your new television)

We DO NOT ACCEPT:
- No food waste contaminated foam – it will contaminate the blank
- No foam “peanuts” – these aren’t EPS foam
- No broken surfboards – give them to Rerip.org instead

4. We collect, recycle, process and repurpose the foam into our products.
5. let's create the demand, ask your shaper for our enviro-foam, the only eco board approved foam on the market!

recycling

how do we recycle?

We are commited to zero waste. All of our scrap foam from our surfboards are grinded in the machine you see above and recycled into new blanks or other foam products made at our facility in utah. Our Enviro-foam blank is made with 25% recycled foam.
