Many of today's surf brands are doing their part in keeping their carbon footprint at a minimum, while still providing quality innovative surfboard products to their core market. The choice of materials and processes make a difference in this case, and sourcing out what's sustainable and achievable in terms of 'green' methods are crucial for both the company and surfing community.
Summer is a great time to try new surf gear such as traction/tail pads, leashes and other surf accessories that you may have not yet tried or encountered prior. Among the most advanced brands today are Firewire and Slater Designs, both co-owned by world surfing champion Kelly Slater.
