Bamboo Surfboards by Gary Young produce boards made with sustainable and ethically produced and sourced bamboo that are both light and durable (with the tendency to dent instead of shatter).
Bamboo surfboards hawaii are made to order, fob Hilo Hawaii and are available in most contemporary shapes.
Future boxes are inset into recesses in the bamboo bottom skin in 100 psi high density foam fordurability. (you supply fins)
Rails are a 100 psi high density foam - painted and glassed for flex and ease of repair. You can tell us what colors and patterns you like, or we can do it for you; check out rail colors and textures in the gallery for ideas.
Decks of bamboo surfboards are up to 4 layers of bamboo/epoxy laminate in hi-stress areas over a 60 psi medium density foam. Bamboo decks tend to not dent from normal use unlike glass boards
Bamboo surfboards use a proprietary semigloss film finish for the final coat. No pinholes and lightweight, the resilient film tends to dent rather than shatter, maintaining a water proof coating.Because any board of a reasonable weight can be damaged, the film finish is easy to repair with epoxy.
Fish or tapa prints or other graphics can be included under the film finish if desired. see logo and graphics in the gallery.

■Once the trees are about 25 years old the cork is stripped from the trunks every nine years. The trees live for about 200 years.
■The cork industry is generally regarded as environmentally friendly.
■The sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects.
■Cork oak forests also prevent desertification and are the home of various endangered species.
■Cork’s low density makes it a suitable material for fishing floats and buoys, as well as handles for fishing rods (as an alternative to neoprene).
I’ve been using one of Wavetribe’s 6′ comp leashes and one of their hemp board bags both for over a year now, and their products are as good as any out there on the market. I suspect their Cork track pads will perform similarly. I just got a new board and already put a track pad on it from the local boys at Xtrak, but if anyone gets one of these and tries it out and wants to do a write-up on it,Â send it our way and we’ll post it.
Yeah, I know, we said Buy Less Shit but I’ve always put trackpads on my boards, so I’d consider it one of the essential items for surfing for me personally.
They just sent out a press release about these pads, if you want to read the official version.
