|Approved to build||Level One ECOBOARDS|
|Brand Description||ARBO makes bespoke hollow wooden surfboards and run build-your-own courses in Europe and the UK.
Although they sometimes do other interesting projects like recycled cork boards, no glass-all wood, cork-wood sandwich paipos, handplanes, skateboards, about 80% of the boards they build are paulownia skins over a poplar plywood skeleton, sealed and reinforced with a layer of 4oz. fibreglass and entropy epoxy resin.Shapes are postmodern and always tailored to their customers – a group who mainly participate in surfing as a holiday or weekend activity. Designs reflect that and most of the time ARBO’s boards have a little bit of extra volume, but always according to the surfers ability, weight, surf area and surfing style.
|Surfboard Sustainability||Level One ECOBOARDS using Qualified Materials.
Sustainability is embedded with ARBO’s brand and identity. Boards are made using a range of more sustainable materials including:
“The key to a sustainable surfboard is to make it last. Our hope is that a customer will look after a personalised, bespoke board differently than a generic off-the-shelf product and value it higher.
We do not advertise our boards as ‘ecoboards’, ‘sustainable’, ‘green’, etc. but encourage our customers instead or additionally to put their focus on changes in lifestyle choices and habits.
