Firewire makes a 100% commitment to Sustainable Surf’s ECOBOARD Project

The ECOBOARD Project is an important environmental initiative, focused on the verification of a surfboards’ eco-credentials by the non-profit Sustainable Surf (SS). SS is dedicated to encouraging and supporting the surfboard industry's transition to more eco-friendly materials and business practices, with the ultimate objective of lowering environmental impact, especially on the world’s oceans.

Firewire embraced the ECOBOARD program from day one with the introduction of our TIMBERTEK models almost 2-years ago. The combination of sustainably grown Paulownia wood deck skins and bio-resin throughout, qualified TIMBERTEK for ECOBOARD certification, and with over 10,000 TIMBERTEK boards in the water since its introduction, we’re proud of what has been accomplished to far.

However, we’re always looking for additional ways to reduce our overall carbon footprint and the toxicity of our surfboards. With that in mind, we coverted 100% to Entropy Bio-resin in July 2014, qualifiying every Firewire surfboard built for ECOBOARD certification. In recognition of this commitment, Sustainable Surf created a special ECOBOARD logo for Firewire which you will see placed around the leash plug on all non-TIMBERTEK Firewire boards built. The TIMBERTEK models will continue to have the ECOBOARD logo branded in front of the fins.

We are excited to be at the forefront of the pursuit of the ‘ever-greener’ surfboard.
