Ruben heeft samen met Lieuwe de Oceana gelanceerd. Het eerste Gold level Ecoboard aldus Ruben; ofwel een board waar goed nagedacht is over de te gebruiken materialen.
Ruben over de Oceana:
My style is always pretty aggressive and powerful and therefor I like a board that is:
Fast - we made sure that this rocker gets enough speed into your jumps.
We’ve also created a nice bottom shape with a great combination of channels and concave to have grip in the right places. The channels and concave are also contributing to the stiffness of the board along with the thickness of the wood. Whilst keeping the board still light and super strong. I’ve always preferred wide tips and A-symmetrical fins for great powerful takeoffs and controlled landings.
The best things about this project is that we partnered up with Sustainable Surf whom helped us create the world’s first gold level ECOBOARD. By choosing wood from a sustainable source, using greener resin and really reduce, reuse and recycle our production waste. As we all need and love our oceans it’s great to help support Sustainable Surf to create more awareness and realisation around the world to protect our oceans. I truly hope that more companies will really make an effort to bring change into their production cycles to produce more eco-friendly products.
