This plant is one of the fastest growing species, reaching a height of up to 10 metres and a diameter of 20-25 cm within 3-4 years. The Balsa trees are planted in a sustainable mixed cultivation program together with bananas, yucca and beans. The production of «foam blanks» has an extremely negative effect on the environment by using fossil fuels and toxic ingredients in the production process. Moreover, the final product can hardly be recycled and therefore contributes to pollution in soil and drinking water. By contrast, Balsa wood is a fast growing, sustainable and recyclable raw material, producing no toxic substances. Therefore, it can be safely said that the use of Balsa wood is a sustainable way of producing surfboard blanks.

About Wave Tribe
Wave Tribe

We care about what is happening to our planet and we are deeply concerned about the health of our oceans.
We love to surf and we want to spend our hard-earned cash on surf gear that is made to last with ecology in mind.
Back in 2007 we couldn't find any eco surf products in the surf shops so we decided to create a surf company that would put sustainability and quality first.

Life is too short to sit behind a desk and do anything about what is happening to our planet so we started an eco revolution and we'd love you to join us.
Every product we make is made with care for the planet first, using high quality eco materials like hemp, cork, bamboo and recycled plastics.
We started Wave Tribe back in 2007 when the word green referred to a color and now many of the mainstream surf brands are jumping on the green wagon to get your dollars---Wave Tribe helped build that eco wagon with deep roots in ecology, sustainability and lots of hard work.
Along the way we have taken the time to research and develop our products in real life situations traveling to Bali, France, Mexico, Nicaragua, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Oz, New Zealand, G-land, Africa . . . and lot's more.
Yea, we've been around and surfed some of the greatest waves on the planet and we are here to share that journey with you. While searching for waves we started making surf guides for you (we offer them for free) and writing travel articles ( also free) while testing the Wave Tribe products.
