Land Rover is now using waste plastic to make gnarly surfboards
For almost 70 years Land Rover has transported people across the world’s toughest terrain, but it is now making its first foray into the ocean with the ‘Waste to Wave’ surfboard, created using recycled plastic derived from early clay design models.
With an estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic dumped in oceans every year, taking hundreds of years to decompose, we have strengthened our commitment to achieving our zero waste goal by creating a range of surfboards made wholly from recycled plastic.
The surfboard was created in partnership with SkunkWorks Surf Co, a surf company with a focus on minimising environmental impact, and tested by the English Women's Open Surfing Champion surfer, Lucy Campbell off the coast of Northern Ireland.
It has carbon fibre rails from the nose and a carbon strip from the tail for additional strength while allowing flex to push through high-intensity manoeuvres.
