Industry Updates

ecoFin developing line of products based on recycled material

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 August, 2015 – A new surfboard fin aims to hit the market with a lighter, more sustainable fin construction. The ecoFin is both a high performance recycled surfboard fin and a symbol for change. The company, ecoFin, has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to see their line of fins through to production.

5 trillion pieces of plastic are floating in our oceans already. This number will tremendously increase if people don’t reduce the production of virgin plastic. ecoFin is convinced that by developing innovative products based on recycled material, they can raise awareness about ocean pollution.

Therefore, their first product is a performance surfboard fin based on ocean waste from Bali.

Why Bali?

Bali is a prime example of a third world country choking in waste and the Indian Garbage Gyre washes up tons over tons every day. The island is well known for its surf breaks and on lands basic recycling structures are growing – we could build up a network of collaborators and supporters.

Why surfers?

The special connection between surfers and the ocean is undeniable and we are convinced that we, as surfers, can act as role models for everyone. “We as surfers live off the ocean’s energy – if it’s now time to give back, I don’t want to miss out”, said Rusty Miller.
