Ethically grown or made from recycled timbers, our Boards are built on the classic designs of surfing heritage and decades of surfing culture perfecting them. The truth is we love surfing and are passionate about our oceans and preserving them for the next generation of surfers. For the love of surfing, we evolved into a workshop making our own timber boards. We are now producing hand made boards from recycled and plantation grown timber and a range of ‘Surf Gear’ from sustainable and eco – friendly materials. It’s our responsibility to minimise our impact on the planet and set a good example.
Were based hinterland, near Byron Bay, Northern NSW.
We’re putting ‘Our Foot Down’ about the way things should be done – that means sustainably, environmentally friendly, promoting an eco-sensitive message out there to all – catering for young and old, surf’n lovers of sunshine, waves and the beach lifestyle, we’ve got the gear for all ages – and our new grom’s starting out. Our clothing range is touched by splashes of colour, just like nature is and compliment the chosen earth tones which are a dominant theme that match the beautiful Timbers of our Surfboards, reminisce of the original trees, ochre and our sand and pebbled beaches here in Australia.
About our Timber we use:-
Recycled timbers are accessed from demolition works, old logs and furniture. The laminates for hollow boards are made from waste strips from milling timber yards, every bit respectfully utilised, appreciating their origin. Australian Paulownia is descended from native Asia and is now an Australian Plantation timber, grown in four states. Paulownia is light in weight and pale blonde in colour with it’s own character grain but approximately the same strength as Cedar. Australian grown Paulownia is extremely stable and termite resistant. It has a magic feel like a firm balsa wood. It is very light and can be painted or stained to resemble any timber and it is great to draw on too.
We are creating artistic enviro – designs on our gear,
just to please you and Mother Nature.
The artwork designs on our Surfboards, printed onto Tshirts, Boardies, Capes and Sarongs are by local artists inspired by their love and appreciation of Mother Nature.
Our message is simply – Preservation, Conservation, Appreciation – and we’re putting our foot down about how things are made and the materials used.
Keeping the Environment in Mindfulness.
