Surf's up for the Eco Board

EcoboardThis here is the Eden Project's Eco Board, the greenest surfboard since wave-riding got caught up in the age of fibreglass and petrochemicals. Unlike the average modern board, this one's made from balsa wood and laminated with a hemp and plant resin. According to Eden, it's so green it'll break down and compost if left to rot. You can't buy one yet - the prototype is designed to kickstart the surf world into making green boards - but you can scope it out for yourself at the Eden Project until 31st August as part of the centre's Full Circle Surf Show.
