The world of surfing is undergoing a revolution with the emergence of new technologies that make it possible to produce boards and wetsuits that are more respectful of the environment.
It must be said that until now most of the materials used were petroleum-based. surf accessories , there is still work to be done, in particular on the pads and leashes which are still made from this same petroleum.
We are starting to count a few initiatives such as Ecopro and their cork pads. If you don't know Ecopro it's a young surf brand. Straight from Portugal.
Ecopro manufactures the pads respectful of the environment using a natural and renewable material: the cork.
