Design A Surfboard
As you know if you assiduously follow the Boxdecoblog, we work in collaboration with designer Thomas de Lussac, which gives us a preview of its latest créations. Aujourd Today, it is revolutionizing the world of surfing enthusiast with a new concept, a board Inflatable Surf developed from tissue Tridimentionnel. Transportable and inflatable in less than 2 minutes, this board is as rigid as traditional board. This article obviously does not apply particularly to lovers of decor but that design a surfboard and innovation, knowing that Thomas de Lussac is a designer and eclectic Boxdecoblog that's why we are fans and always appreciate all these creations whatsoever. Since 2003, the manufacturer of UWL Surfboards has launched the production of a range of boards, called Bioboard with green technology products. Petroleum derivatives are replaced with flax fibers and resins plant. Meeting with Cardinal Thomas, co-manager of UWL. From 2003, UWL has worked on a draft design a surfboard on which one could replace all pollutants by products of green technologies. In 2004, the first prototypes were produced and UWL won Eurosima of Technological Innovation in 2004 and 2007. For this board, we have replaced everything that could be replaced without compromising on performance, and while the constant aim of the offer at an affordable price. Aware from the outset of the impact of the manufacture of a board on the nature (all products used are derived from petroleum), we sought to use as little as possible. The fiber glass was replaced with fiber flax grown and processed in France. The foam, which is the core of the board is composed of foam Biofam from an English manufacturer and built with bio-resins derived from agriculture and not a petroleum derivative. Stratification is performed with a UV resin catalysts. Result: more mess (which is not passed under the UV does not harden) and use solvent to clean tools divided by four. Bioboard our technology is not the solution 100% green but the difference between a conventional manufacturing and product we offer is very important. A large number of surfers are concerned about their impact on nature. But they do not expect that we produce this type of product. This state of mind closer to nature is often at odds with his concern for athletic performance. More resistant plates, combinations hottest destinations for surfing further and further away are all factors of pollution. Still, we produce more and more with our technology Bioboard boards and other French workshops following our lead. That is to say that the rider is ready to change his habits if the performance is there and the price is not exorbitant. Our brothers, they were quite skeptical at first. We hear about for years to bio boards around the world without ever seeing them. But because of our boards to see in action in the water, even the skeptics have begun to change his mind. We have produced over Bioboard boards that we expected even though they represent only a small percentage of our conventional production. Even if the image is very important for a company, we never worked on this project for this purpose. We wanted to do something for nature in line with our work and our know-how. And if this could help change the mindset of surfers and professionals, we are completely happy. Our suppliers include the growing problem of sustainable development into their products, as Brand FCS fins produced from recycled plastic. For us, it's all profit! We can concentrate on our business, design surfboard bespoke high performance. And our real challenge is to continue to integrate these issues throughout the life of the company, through actions on releases into the wild, waste reduction, etc. . . . .
