Wooden Surfboards: Robust & eco-friendly shortboards and longboards at Ecosurfshop.eu

Wooden surfboards made from the very light balsa wood were the standards in the middle of the last century - until they were replaced by "foam" surfboards. Today, the environmentally friendly retro wooden surfboards are back!

Eco Surfboards and SUPs from balsa wood: Light, stable & environmentally friendly

Ever since the largest manufacturer of foam blanks was shut down by the California environmental authorities in 2005 due to massive environmental violations, more and more surfers have begun to reflect on the quality of their much-loved surfboards. Why buy a non-recyclable surfboard made from toxic chemicals when there are sustainable and robust alternatives such as Wooden Balsa, Paulownia or Plywood surfboards? Our collection of wooden surfboards allows you to ride the waves like the Hawaiians - using renewable resources instead of plastic!

Performance: Get more speed in weak corners with our wooden surfboards

When it comes to performance, the main advantage of a balsa wood surfboard over a foam board is its higher level of rigidity and lower flex. The low flex enables more speed in weak sections and makes your surfboard faster. This gives you a secure feeling when paddling a wave and makes even small waves easier. The environmentally friendly wooden Eco Surfboards absorb irregularities in rough waves better and are ideal for the conditions at home in the Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic Sea. Enjoy more control in windy conditions and rough waves than you would with a foam board.

Environmentally friendly: Balsa surfboards from sustainable brands

At all stages of production - from the cultivation of raw materials to the fair payment of employees and the subsequent recycling- an approach to sustainability applies. We carefully select our partner brands. In our Ecosurfshop you will only find wooden surfboards from companies that operate sustainably and whose products meet the highest standards. 

The manufacturers use balsa wood from sustainable cultivation and eco-resin. As a result, your wooden surfboard does not emit any toxins and is produced as environmentally friendly as possible. Reduce your CO2 footprint with the right eco-friendly leash made of recycled materials in our online Ecosurfshop.

Durable: Balsa surfboards last up to five times longer

Balsa wood is characterized by its light weight and long durability. With good care you can surf with your wooden surfboard five times longer than with a foam board, making your contribution to sustainable consumption.

Cool retro design: each balsa surfboard is unique

Stand out in the lineup with the cool retro design of our balsa boards. The aesthetic beauty of the surfboards inspires surfers of all levels, pros and beginners alike. No two boards are the same, each one is unique and specially handcrafted. 

The advantages of the Balsa Wooden Surfboards at a glance

- Higher stiffness and reduced flex for more speed.

- Balsa surfboards better absorb unevenness in waves that don’t break perfectly.

- Eco-friendly: sustainably made from environmentally friendly and renewable materials.

- Cool retro design, also available in single-fin style.

- Each handmade wooden surfboard is unique.

- With good care, your balsa wood surfboard will last 5 times longer than a foam board.


Carefully choose the right Balsa surfboard for you

The choice of your Balsa Surfboard depends on factors such as weight, fitness, riding ability, wave quality and your personal preferences. The volume of the surfboard serves as a good orientation. 

How much volume does my wooden surfboard need?

More volume means better buoyancy. Surfers who weigh more will need a thicker surfboard with more volume. Surfers with a lower body weight, better fitness or higher riding ability will opt for a board with less volume. The information provided in the table below is intended as a rough guide.

A Pro surfer with a body weight of 75 kg will surf a board with about 27 litres in good conditions. An advanced/good surfer with the same weight and a lower skill level as well as fitness level is happier with a board of about 30 litres. Wooden surfboards with more volume make paddling easier and you get the waves easier. We are happy to advise you on your choice.

The shape of your wooden surfboard 

Apart from the volume, the shape determines the performance of your surfboard. Balsa surfboards are available in different shapes with a broad classification into shortboards, funboards and longboards. Singlefin wooden surfboards with retro shapes are especially popular. Check out the product descriptions in detail for comparison.

For rivers, lakes and endless waves: Wood Stand Up Paddle Boards

Surf on the water every day with your Stand Up Balsa Paddle Surfboard. You will cruise lakes and rivers and improve your fitness and balance. Once the next swell arrives, you'll be one of the first to hit the water with your SUP wooden board and can paddle or ride the smallest waves. The hollow shaped Wooden SUPs made from balsa wood are impressive because of their low weight.

Kun_tiqi takes not only its ecological responsibility but also its social responsibility seriously - rewarding manufacturers of organic materials with fair salaries and ensuring that appropriate working conditions are adhered to. For the surfboards, the brand uses the latest technologies and materials to ensure optimal stability and flexibility.

    So why Balsa wood?

    Initially, surfboards were made of hard and heavy wood like redwood or cedar and weighed up to 60 kg. With the invention of fiberglass, balsa wood revolutionized the surfing industry after the end of World War II. The legendary surfer Tom Blake combined the ultra-light balsa wood with an innovative hollow construction that made it much easier for surfers to manoeuvre the waves. 

    In the past decades, the market was dominated by foamboards that were harmful to the environment. Today the Wooden surfboards made from eco-friendly materials and sustainably cultivated balsa wood are on the rise again. They are perfect for all surfers who opt for sustainable surfing experience.

    The particularly low weight of balsa wood makes it ideal for surfboards. It is the lightest of the known wood varieties. When well maintained, Kun_tiqi surfboards can last 5 times longer than conventional foamboards and are completely recyclable

    Kun_tiqi - for Surfers who care! 

    The eco-materials in Balsa Surfboards by Kun_tiqi

    The core component of the surfboard is sustainably grown balsa wood (Ocroma Pyramidale) from the coastal region of Ecuador. Balsa is a deciduous tree and can reach a height of up to ten metres with a diameter of 30 to 40 centimetres within three to four years. Balsa wood is a fast growing biodegradable raw material and is therefore an excellent sustainable material for the production of surfboards.

    The Polyester resin, which is used in conventional surfboard production, is the most toxic component of the surfboard. Kun_tiqi has spent many years exploring eco-friendly alternatives and is now using an eco-resin, most of which is derived from vegetable oil. As far as environmentally friendly resins for aqua sports are concerned, this eco resin represents the cutting-edge development. Further advantages include:

    - high UV resistance,

    - good transparency

    - extreme durability and

    - fewer splits and cracks in the laminate.


    The glass fiber mats used for lamination are made of quartz sand. Thanks to the high compressive and breaking strength of balsa wood, small quantities of glass fiber are adequate for laminating. The leash is attached to a bioplastic plug.

    Choose between Balsa shortboards and longboards

    - Balsa Longboard "Noserider" - ideal for very small waves and stunts. 

    - Balsa wood longboard "Performer" - relatively strong rocker and narrow tail offers agility and good maneuverability. The V in the bottom facilitates a quicker edge change during radical turns.

    - Balsawood Mini Simmons "Bean" - extremely short, wide & thick to give you the most exciting surfing experience of a lifetime; it lets you surf like you were on a skateboard.

    - Balsa Surfboard "60s Singlefin" - with sharp edges in the rear - provides a very relaxed surfing sensation and good maneuverability.

    - Surfboard "70s Singlefin" made of balsa wood - combines classic & modern shape to create an excellent relaxed surfing experience.

    - Balsa Surfboard "Egg" - lets you enjoy the sensation of longboard glides and easy turns, ideal for those switching from longboard to shortboard.

    - Balsa Surboard "Evo" - perfect for advanced and heavy surfers for whom a classic shortboard is too small.

    - Balsa Surf Rider "Malibu" - excellent trimming adjustments and extremely versatile due to the use of different types of fins.

    - Balsa Wood Surfboard "Orca" - the compact secret weapon for small waves.

    - Balsa Wood Surfboard Thruster "Pheni" - fast and agile mix between shortboard and fish; the perfect all-rounder.

    Source of Wooden Stand Up Paddle Boards

    Take a relaxing cruise on a lake near you with your SUP, paddle with friends or surf small waves. Conventional SUPs are made of mostly materials that are harmful to the environment. Kun_tiqi's SUP blanks are crafted from Balsa wood instead of foam. The wood comes from a sustainably-run family-owned plantation in the Ecuadorian coastal region.

    What you get from the wooden SUPs in stylish retro design

    With their stability and longevity, the Wooden Stand Up Paddle Boards deliver a much higher degree of resistance to pressure than foam boards. The hollow SUPs are light and have less flex, providing you with maximum speed. This way you can get through very flat water whilst surfing so you can enjoy more quality time on your longest rides. And that is not all the benefits the stylish retro SUP has to offer; unevenness of the water level is better absorbed with the SUP which means you are faster.

    Surfing on these sustainably made SUPs will help protect the environment and give you the good feeling that comes from surfing on a renewable resource rather than a plastic board. Visually, the Balsa Stand Up Paddle Boards are a real eye-catcher, the stylish retro-designs grab attention and you will quickly get into conversation with other surfers. Each Kun_tiqi SUP is elaborately and uniquely handcrafted, with its own grain and colour.

    If well maintained, your wooden Stand Up Paddle Board will last five times longer. So get yourself a sustainable surfing experience while enjoying your favourite sport with a clear conscience. If a heavy fall should cause damage, the best way to repair the board is to use wood dust and epoxy resin. Kun_tiqi offers you support for professional repairs. In urgent cases such as during vacation, you can also make small repairs using Styrofoam micro balloon paste.
