South Africa based company Hurricane Surf is experimenting new surfboard constructions with flax fibres cloth, ampliTex.
The ampliTex flax fabric, the most effective natural fibres currently on the market, fully sustainable, engineered with low twist for higher performances, makes the board significantly more resistant to surface pressure dents and also makes it really lively, resulting a surfboard that last longer and performs better!

The flax fabrics are laid by hand and resin coated, same process as glass fibers, the easiest and most common manufacturing process within the surf industry.

In terms of sustainability , to be produced, flax fibres require 10 times less energy than glass ones. They also 100% renewable, grown in Europe with little irrigation and fertalizer and free or GMO.
