While the surf spirit prones values like outdoor life, respect of the nature and people, the only boards you could find on the marketplace are highly toxic for both the planet and the shapers’ health.

Providing surfers with boards that truly match their values, while the most accessible possible, is the aim NOTOX pursues.

Inventor of eco-built surfboards, we have been keeping challenging our processes to produce ever-more responsible and sustainable boards.

Fair Materials


Let’s stick to the facts…

A classic surfboard generates twice of its weight of waste, among which nothing is recyclable, and everything highly toxic.

NOTOX boards produce waste for less than the half their weight, 75% of which is recyclable.

Materials are sourced the closest possible from the Notox lab so that the carbon footprint is the least possible.

They come from an organic natural origin or from recycling and prove no toxicity for people and nature.

Performance


Thinking ethically doesn’t mean we don’t care about technology and performance. It’s all the other way round.

Through a decade in development and production, design and materials bring our boards improved capacities, not just for the sake of statistics, but to seek the best surfing experience possible.

Lighter and easier to handle while proving more resistant and better absorbing vibrations, our boards are designed for fun.

Recycled EPS


We use ENVIRO-FOAM EPS blanks for all our surfboards, which means that the core of Notox greenOne® surfboards comes from recycled EPS regrinds and surfboard scraps.

The benefits are environmental first, but not only!

You get a stronger board due to tight fusion between the beads, a cleaner look and easier to shape because the tightly fused beads that do not fall apart.

We only use ENVIRO-FOAM EPS that have been Eco-Board Approved by Sustainable Surf.

Flax


The use of Flax is probably what you will see first on our surfboards.

For the greenOne® we engineered a new generation of multi-axial flax fabric.

Natural fibers brings more flexibility as well a strong dynamic.
You will feel an instant board response and increased speed all while absorbing vibrations.

It is not only beautiful, 100% natural and renewable, it is helping the dynamic and performance of the greenOne®.

Bio-epoxy


Over a decade ago, Sicomin and NOTOX began to address the untapped potential of bio resins in the manufacture of sports equipment.

Together the companies have created a formulation that offers as little environmental impact as possible and supports greener production methods.

Sicomin’s GreenPoxy® 56 is now used to manufacture the entire range of NOTOX greenOne® short board, long board, and the Korko board.

The product contains over 51% carbon content which is sourced from plant and vegetable matter.

Non-volatile cleaners


For 500 surfboards a year, the surfboard industry would use 1.5 tons of acetone,
a very volatile, toxic and harmful solvant, which can causes severe health issues for the shapers and toxic for our environment.

Instead we use only 100 kg of non volatiles solvant (non-VOC) which are harmless for the shapers and the athmosphere.
