New 'GreenRail' Construction

While we're wood guys at the core, we've always jumped at the opportunity to do some R&D development with bio-resins, natural fibers, and the use of recycled plastics in our boards. We're constantly reminded of the need to find a genuine use for plastic waste and do what we can to contribute to a circular economy. 

With a few years of prototyping behind us, working with numerous forms of recycled plastics and finding the most efficient ways to mill, cut and shape, build, surf, cut apart and build again, we're excited to announce the launch of our NEW GreenRail Construction method. 

 

The GreenRail marries the all the benefits of our hollow wooden board constuction with a perimter rail made from 100% recycled plastic. On top of that, we remain commited to our "Waste No Waste" initiatives and are working diligently with our local waste management company as well as with the material manufacturer to find the best way to recycle or re-use our own offcuts.  

Each board is build, shaped and glassed by hand in our shop and this new constuction is available in most of our shapes. On top of that, we're able to offer it at a price on par with some of the best shapers in the industry and dramtically reduced from our orginal all-wood construction.

We aim to keep GreenRail boards in stock for immediate sales, and you can find those boards in our online store. However, if you dont see one, don't fret, you can order one through the page of the board your looking for and we'll get right on it. We'll contact you to discuss details as always.
