Cornish surfboard company wins green award for eco board
Green Award for Eco Board
A Cornish company has received the first ever Green Wave Award for surfboard production from magazine Surfer’s Path. Ocean Green (www.oceangreen.org) is set to revolutionise the industry with its range of EcoFoil boards due to arrive in Cornwall this autumn.
The hollow balsa wood and hemp cloth construction is designed to provide a viable, mass market alternative to chemically produced boards. Creator Stuart Thomson commented: “Every surfer now has the choice whether or not to put their money where their heart is.”
