BLISS - what a fab day with @zensurfmorocco - just so happy and relaxed. As there are no group lessons today Nicolas the owner organised a private lesson for me this morning and I then joined another group from one of his friends for an afternoon of #surf fun.

Lib Tech makes possibly the world’s most eco friendly surfboards. The ingredients for making a Lib Tech high performance board include a non ozone depleting blowing agent, 100% closed cell foam, which doesn’t absorb water, and an up to 50% recycled foam blank core. High profile shapers like Matt Biolos, of Mayhem Surfboards, have jumped on board with Lib Tech’s eco-surfboard technology, by adding surfboard models to the Lib Tech lineup.
Making a Hollow Wooden Surfboard Looks Like It's Totally Worth It
The inside of a wooden surfboard looks like the skeleton of a fish. And it only gets more beautiful from there. The entire process of making a surfboard from wood (most surfboards are made from foam and fiberglass) is so fun to see.

But the hollow wood surfboard ends up being so beautiful and natural that you see that it’s totally worth it.
Gary McNeill Surfboards Entity is the ultimate all-rounder under the guise of a modern performance fish and one of the few boards that truly rips in most conditions. The Entity cruises along flat, stomach high sections, eats clean waves and handles steep, hollow overhead barrels with ease.
