Recycled Cork Surfboards

Reusing materials is a major challenge to avoid wastage, the practice is now used in various products, such as these surfboards made ​​with cork stoppers and manufactured by a company in Murcia, in Spain, with a peculiar name, Richpeoplethings. Surfing is fully connected to nature, nothing better than a sustainable raw material for making the boards. The idea came from two young Spaniards who collect cork stoppers donated by volunteers. After being separated by size and placed in the correct form, the stoppers are fixed together with beeswax and pine resin, less impactful materials than those found in the industry. The end result is stunning! Cork is highly recommended for boards because of its properties, it is waterproof, lightweight, elastic and grips well to the surfer, providing better performance on the water.  watch the video

All boards are exclusively handmade to order, expect approximately 2 months for delivery. Part of the profit will be donated to organizations that use surfing as a therapy tool or social rehabilitation.
