etc surfboards was born in a bid to find a surfboard construction technique that produced a more eco friendly product with out sacrificing any performace based factors in a surfboard. I use re-cyclable eps foam, lower VOC epoxy resin and sustainably grown paulownia timber. The resultant boards are lighter, float better and maintain (and exceed) performance characteristics of traditional PU surfboards. In addition, etc surfboards will not yellow and will outlast a PU board by years. etc surfboards strike a balance between those wanting a high performance surfboard and eco friendly surfboard without the short-comings of a more traditional wooden surfboard.
