Ecomoana's Surfing Eco-Concept the pursuit of a bio-enhanced surfboard, the unique design & the eco-performance while simultaneously lowering the impact on the environment.

Today, Porcher Industries and Ecomoana Surfboards are offering a new concept regarding the use of the Porcher Greenlite™ fiber into the Premium surfboard collection of Ecomoana.

Porcher Greenlite™ is the ultimate generation of high performance renewable fiber, based on pure cellulose fibers and specifically designed for surfboards construction. The combination of low density and superior mechanical properties allows Ecomoana surfboard to be made on an excellent weight / eco-performance basis. The new materials used in the Porcher Greenlite™ constitute a significant improvement in terms of quality, duplicability, industrial scalability, dedicated to the manufacturing of eco friendly composites, such as surfboards and SUPs".

To further optimize the eco-friendly benefits of its surfboards, Ecomoana has been co-developing a full range of 100% solid (solvent free) bio-based epoxy resin systems designed to meet surfboard requirements. These resins are clear bio epoxy systems (pure transparency and high strength or organic epoxy systems (yellow is green™ effect).
