Why hol­low wooden surfboards?

Born from a pas­sion for surf­ing, the ocean and the envi­ron­ment, Mar­tijn and Tyler started build­ing their own boards to marry these ele­ments together. They made a con­scious choice to avoid toxic foam and poly­ester and started work­ing with wood, exper­i­ment­ing with tra­di­tional and mod­ern board shapes, fine-tuning con­struc­tion meth­ods and hon­ing their wood-working and shap­ing techniques.

Cus­tom made by hand

Mar­tijn and Tyler build hand-made cus­tom boards, wooden hand-planes, and other wood prod­ucts. Each prod­uct is unique and is built to last.

Build­ing for the future

Whilst the boards are still coated in Epoxy resin, the wooden con­struc­tion method pro­duces very lit­tle waste: almost every piece of scrap wood finds life else­where, the saw dust is col­lected and recy­cled and Mar­tijn and Tyler are actively research­ing and test­ing less harm­ful cloths and resins. Recy­cled wood boards are in the works for the future and for­tu­nately there are promis­ing devel­op­ments with bio-based resins so that an entirely envi­ron­men­tally safe pro­duc­tion will be pos­si­ble in the future.
