Upcycled Surfboards: Saved From the Landfill

Meet Marc Sanchez, the guy upcycling dumpster boards into beautiful new surfboards. Surfers are waking up to the waste and sustainability issues in the surf industry, and Marc is on a mission to green it up.

He gets broken surfboards that were destined for the landfill, strips them down in his shop, and crafts them into one of a kind surfboards. All the materials he uses are sourced locally, and the boards are glassed with a more eco-friendly bio-based epoxy resin. He wants there to be a day when he doesn’t upcycle boards anymore though, and instead, surfboards are built with compostable foam and entropy resins. He practices what he preaches, living the simple life in a tiny house.
