The ocean, our playground, is a precious gift. Also, the surfing community, each and everyone one of us, has long since been committed in its preservation. Paradoxically, the manufacturing of most surfboards has been polluting the planet and quite threatening the health of those who design them. That is the reason why we have been dedicating all of your energy into designing surfboards that are both effective and health & environment-friendly. Fulfilling all those criteria has not been a walk in a park, but so is our journey « a Quest to Fair Boards » !
Following the success of our flax fabrics surfboard (aimed at intermediate and experienced surfers), we now wish to reach out to surfers from every level, but also to surf schools by offering them adapted and fun gear .That’s why today we are launching Project “Korko”: A safe and robust surfboard. The Korko boards will be available in 3 different sizes: 5’6, 6’6 and 7’6.
