Using Paulownia wood in surfboard construction is a wise choice. It unites resistance, lightness, rigidity and sustainability! It makes your surfboard very resistant against pressure dings and extends its life for many years. Paulownia is a really fast-growing tree that makes its use eco-friendly and sustainable. The wood lessens the amount of fiberglass implemented on the surfboards, reducing the impact on the environment even more.
The cork rails give our surfboards great flexibility and make them very responsive. On high performance surfboards in particular, you will experience the “pop” just after your bottom turn by gaining extra speed. Cork has very high resilience. In the case of an impact it will just return to its initial shape. As a result, less repairs are needed.
The Paulownia deck, bottom and cork rails are reinforced with eco epoxy resin and fiberglass to achieve a smooth and resistant surface.
All Collective Surfboards manufactured in the Paulownia & Cork production technique have the “Gold Level” certification from the sustainable surf Ecoboard project.
