Did you know that Wave Tribe Invented the Cork Deckpad?


Well, now you do!

Cork TreeYou can read more about that here or stay on this page for some cork stoke!

Cork comes from a LIVE tree.

No dudes and dudettes, they don’t kill the tree to extract the cork.

Zen eco surf master lesson number one.

The material has been used for thousands of years, but what has made it famous is its application in wine bottles.

Viva la cork!

The cork is cut off the tree, cleaned, boiled and baked.

No chemicals are used and the end result is a biodegradable product.

Rad!

Cork is a renewable resource and its harvesting is a truly sustainable example of agroforestry (this kind of agro is okay).

Agroforestry combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, healthy and sustainable land systems.

Producing plastic on the other hand—well, you can imagine, extracting plastic from oil is a dirty process.

Why does cork make a great pad?

It’s light and soft, no hard ridges on your pad to cut your knees.

Cork does not absorb water, it repels it—that means your surfboard tail remains light and agile for those sick turns.

Cork is a natural fire retardant, so your board won’t catch fire because you rip so hard!

So, we have come to the part of the email where, if you want, you can get a new cork deck pad.

Do it!

Cork traction pads are rad.

Now you know why, so try one today!
