Why does Queensland make the best surfboards? Right ho, time to get honest with yourself for a slice. Buying a surfboard will not save the planet. We haven’t printed it on a disclaimer, but maybe we should. But there are still a few good reasons why you should consider purchasing one of our flax, recycled, Vacbagged wave sliding machines.
A quote from Notox Surfboards… KORKO: the first eco surfboard, making surf easier. KORKO is the world first affordable surfboard made of sustainable materials and designed to be easy. I’m beyond stoked for this review and I can’t begin to explain how blown away I am from the surfboard concept from Notox Surfboards known as the Korko! It’s a cork surfboard, yup, you read correctly, cork!! That stuff that keeps old fancy wine from spilling out on the cellar floor!
Having gotten our hands on a board that has been a long time on our ‘want list’ from NOTOX surfboards, we thought it would be a sensible idea to throw out what we thought in another video review. The KORKO, as you have probably guessed, is made at least in part of cork. It is the brainchild of the very cool guys at NOTOX who have had this idea in development for a long while, we were all very stoked to have the chance to test it in different conditions and report back to you, our long-suffering audience. NOTOX KORKO : 6’0 x 21 3/4 and about 49 litres.
For those of you who know me, the mere mention of an Epoxy board is enough to get me rolling my eyes in disgust, and usually followed by some diatribe about them being kook machines, who’s ever won a world title on one?*, they’re a bitch to fix etc etc. I’ve ridden epoxy boards. Twice in fact, and they’ve hit me in the face on both occasions. And I’ve done one good turn on them, so that’s that to be honest.
