Flax On The Beach is a brand of handbuilt skate- and surfboards, made with natural flax fibre and a resin that is partially bio-based.
The way these boards are manufactured has barely changed over the past 30 years.
They are still constructed using a composite of synthetic resin and fiberglass.
The fiberglass releases tiny toxic splinters during production, which attack the skin, eyes and airways.
None of the standard components are biodegradable or renewable.
Flax fibre is non toxic, renewable, biodegradable and safe to work with, paving the way for a greener generation of boards.
