"Chris’ artwork was the first of its kind but since he completed the work, board graveyards have been created in commemoration of surfers. Notably, Ricardo dos Santos was recently honoured with a board graveyard. “It was pretty cool to see that happen,” said the 25-year-old, who may have started a new surfing ritual."

The ECOBOARD Project Benchmark:
An ECOBOARD must be made from at least one of the following materials:
- Blank: foam made from minimum 40% recycled foam or at least 40% biological content
- Resin: epoxy resin made from minimum 15% biological content with low VOCs
- Alternative Structure: A surfboard structure made from sustainably
sourced biological/renewable material (aka-wood) that provides the
majority of the surfboard’s material and structural integrity – and
therefore significantly reduces the amount of foam or resin needed to
build the board.

Finnish designer Björn Holm has been collecting broken skateboards since 2011 from friends, relatives, and fellow skaters in his community. Much like 1000 Surfboard Graveyard, Holm realised that:
'Skateboards are sweet, its just as simple as that. Most people throw them away after they snap. Thousands of boards being used as landfill all over the world, and that´s a shame with this great material inside these boards. Don't throw those boards away, keep them and make something beautiful!' - Björn Holm
Holm's creation is a colourful, 100% recycled 6'4" fish surfboard made from nothing but broken/old skateboards. He called the project RETO - REcycle for TOmorrow - see the video for the full story.

You may know of the cardboard surfboard kits made by Mike Sheldrake (if not, click HERE NOW). It's not exactly the first material one tends to associate with surfboard construction. Scott Mac Donough has created another innovative cardboard surfboard variation. It may need some fine tuning - but bring on 'The Cardboard'!

...Over five years, staff at Eden worked with three other companies, Homeblown, Sustainable Composites and Laminations, to produce the board which is made from 50 per cent renewable materials. The move is considered a significant step forward from the petroleum chemicals used in traditional surfboard production.
