Warning: may contain (coco)nuts

surfing4When it comes to hanging 10, the surfboard is a vital piece of the equation. Most high-end surfboards are made of carbon fiber because of the material strength to weight ratio. Global Surf Industries wanted to raise the bar and develop something different, a board made of coconut husk fiber. It turns out that the husks offer an unmatched strength to weight ratio, come from a renewable source and require less toxic resin to build. The boards are among the lightest and strongest on the market and offer a responsive, fluid ride and great flex characters. The Coco Mat surfboards come in a variety of sizes and range from $365 to $1,570.

What sparks our fire: Superior products from natural renewables sources.

Will coconut fibers play a prominent role in the future of sustainable products?
