Hermanns Shaping Company looks to take the surfer/environmentalist relationship one step further with their wooden and veneer treated surfboards. Which is understandable considering how far everything in the industry has come except the surfboards themselves. Built with fiberglass resin and foam, they’re not the most biodegradable products out there. And it was with this reality that Hermanns looked to the forest for answers.

Each surfboard Hermanns shapes is crafted from Paulownia wood, known as the “other” Balsa because of its lightweight yet strong properties. They are CNC machined to achieve ideal size and shape and each board is finished off with wooden veneer for reinforcement. They feature a hollow wood chambered construction to remain lightweight and Hermanns offers several sizes to choose from. These include two SUPs, a funboard, shortboard, kiteboard, and wakeboard. And if surfing isn’t your passion they also offer skateboards as well as furniture for those a bit more landlocked than others. Prices vary based on chosen product. [Purchase]
