Cork cells display what is known as elastic memory—when compressed they return to their original size—great for stomp pads and ours have been tested by the best.
Most deck pads are made out of non environmentally friendly EVA plastic (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate).
We first tested recycled EVA pads but they didn't hold up well, they were a bit soft and didn't quite offer the right consistency.
After trying several different alternatives we came across CORK.
After making and testing a cork + eva composite we were very pleased with the results and you will be too.
Other companies were impressed too and so they copied us, we are flattered.
Support the company that was first!
Yea you do!
But what is also important is that these pads work. Right?
One thing we really like is that the edges are soft, but not too soft.
So your knees don't get all ripped up in warm water.
However, the pad is hard enough to make your turns and airs the best they can be.
The other cool thing is that cork repels water. Why is this important?
Cause excess water stays off your pad and thus your tail stays lighter, offering more performance ease and speed for your sick turns.
Dude. Look, we know you like rainbow colors and pictures of gorillas on your pad, but dude did you know that to make those colors companies have to use KARLY inks and dyes?
Colors really mean more toxicity in the environment.
Didn't think of that did you.
You can get creative and draw something nice on the pad yourself.
Be original, the chicks like that better anyway.
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.
