The water sports specialists from Starboard have taken a large step towards sustainable production: The world market leader in the field of SUP and windsurfing has joined the ecoboard project of the charitable organization Sustainable Surf.

Biological resins, recycled plastic, environmentally friendly packaging: All of Starboard’s 2017 products should bear the environmental seal of the ecoboard project. The manufacturer, which was founded in Norway, and the environmental organisation Sustainable Surf, which is based in California, announced their cooperation.


“The big idea behind this is to move ourselves -- and the whole industry -- forwards”, said Starboard’s founder and CEO Svein Rasmussen. His company wishes to show that in the next three years an “eco revolution in high performance manufacturing” is possible.
