HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY

We are "ecoPro - Driven by Nature" an award winning, Portuguese based company, designer and manufacturer of the most eco-friendly surfboard traction pads available worldwide.

In the last four years, we were exclusively dedicated to the development and production of a functional pad the Cork Traction Pad made from cork waste which consists of 97% of organic material and the most eco-friendly traction pad on the world, an alternative to replacing the use of plastics in the surf industry.

Behind this solution is a history full of struggle and sacrifice, but more important than that is what history already taught us and we cannot make the same mistakes by just looking to the other side.

PRODUCTS

Traction pads for Surfboards.

MANUFACTURING

The cork used in the production of cork agglomerate comes from different sources:

From the first and second bark stripped, trees that are not ready to make stoppers and from the leftovers, shavings, pieces and waste from other cork industries. After milled together this granules are the raw material to produce cork agglomerates. Composite agglomerates are made from the agglomeration of these cork granules by a process of agglutination using pressure, heat and a binder.

CARING & REPAIRING

For the application of the pads, please read carefully this note which will help you to place the traction pad in the surfboard:

- Read the instructions inside the box, placed below the Pad.
- Once the adhesive touches the board there is not possible returning.
- To remove the paper adhesive more easily, apply a little friction.

Important to remove all dirt, dust and wax, use a sand or a green wash clean scrub at the area where the pad is going to be placed, even if it's a new board.
