Sustainable Wooden Surfboards by Grain Surfboards

Growing up here in San Diego, we’ve always had a love for surfing. While we don’t see a ton of innovation within the industry, the team at Grain Surfboards could be on to something with their sustainable surfboards.

While we are a bit skeptical of how they would hold up compared to the foam boards we currently surf, Grain’s hollow, cedar wood constructed boards are some of the most beautiful we’ve ever laid our eyes upon. The company was founded by New England surfers Mike LaVecchia and Brad Anderson. With some help from a few friends, the duo has been taking their York Beach, Maine based company global – with clients from California to Dubai. The brand is committed to building boards that are less impactful on the environment, and only use locally harvested, sustainable-yield wood products while also making sure to find creative ways to reuse the waste created on each build. Every surfboard takes the brand about a week to complete, and they also offer D.I.Y. kits for those of you looking to get a bit more hands on. [Purchase]
