We know for sure that our planet Earth is changing. The climate is warming up, biodiversity is threatened and plastic continents are being created. Current production and consumption patterns are responsible for this.
At HEXA Surfboard, we are deeply convinced we can act to counter these changes. Most of surfers are also feeling this way. We can all act to preserve our dear Nature and beloved Ocean.
Surfing is a demanding sport that requires high-performance equipment, but surfing is above all a state of mind, a community. By buying surfboards, this community today is forced to use petrochemical materials and generate toxic waste.
Whether in the local small shaper warehouse or in the famous californian factories, it has been 60 years that polyurethane and polyester are polluting our air and ocean. And these raw materials travel around 10 000 kms before the surfboard is delivered to the customer.
Surfers deserve better. They have the right to surf more transparent surfboards.
While many industries see eco-responsibility as a constraint, we see it as a strength and an opportunity to constantly find innovation. We believe that technology can complement hand made work to make fully customized surfboards that match surfer’s level and spirit.
We are confident that each and every surfer can be a climate ambassador, riding proudly his custom-made Eco-Surfboard.
