Still never broke a WT leash! Can you believe it?” ~ Mercedes Maidana, Wave Tribe Team 3 times nominated For the xxl awards Cork Traction The OG Cork Deckpad In the 1600s, a Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon observed that wooden stoppers wrapped in oil-soaked rags used to seal his bottles of sparkling wine often popped out, and so he replaced them with conical pieces of cork. That stroke of genius was similar to what Wave Tribe experienced when they discovered cork as an alternative to eva plastic—less plastic is good! Wave Tribe had this stroke of genius after we decided that we needed to find an alternative to EVA plastics. We first tested recycled EVA pads but they didn’t hold up well—they were a bit soft and didn’t quite offer the right consistency. After trying several different alternatives we pioneered some R&D with cork and we found it to be a wonderful alternative to plastic. Others have followed suit and started using cork affirming that cork instead of EVA is the Way. Cork Facts: Cork is sustainable harvested from mature (around 25 year old) cork oak trees, the outer layer of bark, which is cork as we know it, is stripped off the tree without harming the tree in any way, making cork a sustainable material. Size: 3 Piece Design Dimensions: 12” Length. 11” Front Width. 5” Back Width. Kick: 1 1/4”. Arch 3/8” Material: Cork + EVA Composite. No Harmful Paints . Biodegradable. Guarantee: One Year “Our customers really like your pads.” ~ Robert, Owner Robert's surfboards, Ventura CA Eco Board Socks Sometimes you want something a bit lighter than a Wave Tribe Eco Bag, perhaps something more colorful or just a little love to slip over your board while it’s chilling in the corner of your room or stuffed in the backseat of your car. Of course, if you’re down with the Wave Tribe Vibe then you know it’s got to be ecological and cool at the same time. Respect to Mother Earth yo! The Wave Tribe Surfboard Socks (or light covers) are made from recycled material + have a nice padded HEMP patch at the nose to help protect the most vulnerable areas of your ride—it is kind of like a flavor savor, but what it saves is your board, which for some of us is the best saltwater flavor out there. Made from Hemp + P.E.T. Various Sizes/Designs 5.8 - 6 - 6.3 - 6.6 - 7.6 - 8.6 - 9 - 9.6 Skull Sock Available In: 5.10 Mini 6.3 Fish 6.6 Short 7.6 Gun 8.6 Mal/Long 100% Eco Wax You Can Eat It We searched far and wide for the right organic wax. When we found this one made in the U.S.A. by surfers on wood stoves we were super excited to test it out. We discovered that it really works fantastically. The wax goes on the board easy and does its job. This wax keeps your feet where they are supposed to be without using oil or chemicals—a great wax made just for you. Each time you purchase a bar of Wave Tribe Eco Wax a portion of the sale will go to the surf artist Olivier Longuet—supporting creativity and style is at the core of Wave Tribe’s values and we thank you for joining us in this wonderful journey. We offer basecoat, cool, cold, and warm wax. "Your eco-friendly approach fits in perfectly with our current campaign." ~Morgan Plant, SWELL.COM Got Wood?
