    About This Project

    The modern surfboard comprises layers of unrecyclable plastic which often break and pollute our oceans. Myco-composites provide the perfect foundation for a surfboard due to their lightweight construction and buoyancy. As we build a 100% biodegradable surfboard we investigate how low tech solutions of grown materials could compete with industry standard petroleum based materials for high performance sports, which can serve as a springboard for more complex experiments with fungal materials.
