SURFBOARDS FOR A SHARED PLANET

At Moss Research we build surf-crafts the eco-friendly way. Our mission is to minimize environmental
impact by innovating and implementing the most sustainable manufacturing practices possible. Support
healthy environments and take your surfing to a new level of performance and sustainability!

ECO-FLEX TECHNOLOGY

Super Sap Resin

The Resin

Our bio-epoxy resin gets its unique flex characteristics from a special polymer found in pine sap. The elongation properties are many times greater than those found in petroleum, creating a far more resilient and flexible surfboard.

Recycled Foam

The Blanks

Our recycled EPS foam blanks have a water absorption rate of 1% after submersed for 24 hours. This means your board won’t be sucking… literally! The fused cellular structure is a precision building component with greater “memory,” to spring-back out of maneuvers.

Flex and Strength

Flex and Strength

Our eco-flex materials work together with hull design in creating unique performance characteristics without the negative impacts of polyester, polyurethane or standard epoxy construction. The resulting surfboard reaches an equilibrium of performance, strength and sustainability.

Support us on Kickstarter!! “Surfboards for a Shared Planet”

Our Kickstarter campaign is well underway and we need your help! Please support us on this journey to sustainability. With your help we will be one step closer to achieving our goals which include: 1) Bulk ordering surfboard materials from our suppliers. 2) Expanding our manufacturing facility is San Diego to increase production capabilities, including contract glassing and an eco-board building material supply hub for other shapers to make Eco-Flex boards under a licensing agreement. 3) Creating recycling programs with our partners at Marko Foam and work with local schools to help collect the feedstock for our process while creating educational eco-board building workshops. 4) Obtaining an in depth 3rd party LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) to provide the industry with legitimate baseline metrics and transparency in evaluating the sustainability of our product. Our mission is to shift the paradigm of toxic, disposable and non-recyclable manufacture to an alternative that is in line with surfer’s values as Stewart’s and shepherds of our oceans and environment. The results of our work has yielded a lighter, stronger, and more dynamic surfboard that does not come at the expense of the environment or the craftsmen’s health. Join us as we take your surfing to a new level of stoke and sustainability! Help us share our process with surfers and shapers everywhere!
