GOLD LEVEL

ECO BOARD

Informed by the Sustainable Surf Lifecycle Analysis, our boards are granted the highest level of eco-friendly certification available.

RECLAIMED

redwood

No trees were harmed in the production of our Splinter Series Surfboards. While there are ample opportunities to acquire off-the-shelf wood supply to fulfill our production, we have instead taken the long road ensuring a more responsible material sourcing protocol. Through several years of partnerships, we have developed relationships with sustainable mills and sawyers, who are only called to clear trees when fallen naturally or deemed problematic to other aspects of the land.

ECO FRIENDLY

FINISH

We have developed our own proprietary hybrid of bio-based epoxy along with a natural and water-based surfacing agent to ensure an eco-friendly and robust finish. Overall, our boards require only about 40% of the resin, when compared to a conventionally built surfboard. 

HIGH DENSITY CORK RAILS

DID YOU KNOW THAT CORK IS THE ONLY SPECIES OF WOOD THAT CAN BE HARVESTED WITHOUT CUTTING DOWN A TREE?  OFTEN REFERRED TO AS THE MOST SUSTAINABLE WOOD SOURCE ON THE PLANET, WE ARE THRILLED TO INCLUDE THIS AS A FEATURE ON OUR BOARDS.

FAQ

IS MY BOARD DONE YET? 

ALL BOARDS ARE MADE TO ORDER. CURRENT LEAD-TIMES FOR BOARD PRODUCTION ARE CURRENTLY AROUND THE 2-3 MONTH MARK.

WHAT IS THE AVERAGE WEIGHT?

THE SPLINTER SERIES BOARDS GENERALLY ARE ABOUT 10% LIGHTER THAN YOUR CONVENTIONAL FIBERGLASSED EPOXY SURFBOARD, HOWVER EVERY PIECE OF WOOD HAS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT PROPERTIES WHICH PROVIDE A BIT OF VARIETY IN WEIGHT. 

WHAT ABOUT DINGS

THESE BOARDS ARE INCREDIBLY DENT AND DING-RESISTANT, BUT IN THE CASE OF A BAD BUMP, ANY GLASS SHOP CAN REPAIR THE SURFACE WITH EPOXY. IN A MORE SERIOUS INCIDENT, OUR SHOP IS HAPPY TO BACK-FILL YOUR REDWOOD SURFACE STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE OR SHIP OUT A REDWOOD PATCH KIT TO YOUR LOCAL DING SHOP.
