NATURE'S CROP

We use hemp because it's a great alternative to plastic and it is a fabulous eco textile. Wave Tribe started using hemp in 2007, before the cool kids got to it (hehe).

  • Hemp grows naturally without pesticides
  • Hemp is strong and durable
  • Hemp is biodegradable
  • Hemp reduces heat and remains cool
  • Hemp protects against the sun's harmful rays

Surfboard Bag Manifesto

We all should have a life mantra, something we say to ourselves to help remind us of what is good. Well, here is our boardbag mantra.

  1. Protect your surfboards with more padding, stylish design and quality components.
  2. Use strong high quality zippers using nickel plated non-corrosion YKK zippers made in Japan.
  3. Do the planet good by using ecological materials like hemp and surf like crazy.
