More Environmentally Friendly Materials Used Lately by Some Surfboard Producers

"Since ... early 2006 there have been several important developments in the use of new environmentally friendly materials for surfboard blanks, cloth, resins, etc. These include biofoam ... Biofoam is produced by replacing the polyol component of the foam with materials converted from natural plant oils. Additional products include bamboo stringer EPS foam, various types of bamboo cloth, and even organic plastic leash plugs made from corn starch. Then there are several people making hollow wood boards with EPS spine and ribs or other internal reinforcing materials, and even a comeback in solid wood boards." - excerpt from Surfrider Foundation's 'Environmentally Friendly Surfboards' web page.
