How do I find a high performance surfboard that isn’t harmful to the environment? We have the answer for you, and it’s E-Flex!
Made with environmentally friendly materials, our E-Flex construction is as good as it gets. Light as a feather, tough as nails, it can be built into any shape and will perform in any surf.

The core of an E-Flex board is a Marko Foam, stringerless, moulded, EPS blank. This premium blank is manufactured in the USA, and is considered to be the best EPS blank in the world. Trusted by Lost, Channel Islands, Pyzel and many other of the world’s biggest surfboard brands, it’s now available to you in your E-Flex board.
Unlike a traditional polyurethane blank, EPS is fully recycleable and non-toxic, meaning it doesn’t have to end up on a landfill site at the end of it’s life. It can be made into building materials, used in compost, or recycled into fresh EPS.
The Marko blank is cut on a CNC machine to the perfect CAD designed shape and hand finished before it’s ready for glassing.
A stringer adds strength to a board, but it also adds weight. We therefore use carbon strips on the top and bottom decks of the board to provide the strength that is needed, but the carbon is far lighter than a wooden stringer and it also gives the board more flex.
The E-Flex is glassed with Entropy Resins’ Supersap Epoxy. By employing green chemistry techniques that require less energy and produce less harmful byproducts, they reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the production of their resins by 33% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. They also replace petroleum based carbon with renewable plant-based carbon.
