CUSTOM ECO SURFBOARDS
Our high-performance and traditional surfboards are made from the latest eco-friendly, sustainable hi-tech materials. Custom eco surfboards are our specialty and we’re known to push the boundaries, delivering high performance craft with careful consideration to Mother Nature.
Jason Wiggers is the owner of Samsara Surf, a boutique surfboard company in Victoria, Australia. He is a passionate artist and pioneer in the Australian eco-friendly surfboard industry.
Using his background in mechanical engineering, Wiggers recently developed a new eco-friendly board using traditional fiberglass with B-comp flax.
“We all have to find that one thing that feeds our soul and set us free. For me it is right here with my boards and my family,” says Wiggers.
How do you stay competitive against other surfboard manufacturers?
I’m heavily involved in mechanical design and I consider myself a very good artist. I believe that I’ve successfully brought these two personal qualities together to make a highly competitive eco-friendly surf board. At the moment there isn't much competition in this area of the industry, but I think competition is good and I invite other board makers to try and make their boards easier on the environment.
What influenced you to manufacture eco-friendly surf boards?
Surfers are very connected to the ocean we go on and about how "wicked and spiritual" the whole experience is - and it is! But here we are riding foam chemical sticks of fiberglass. Don't get me wrong, I still use these same products for most of my boards because customers are still reluctant to try something new. I end up catering for both markets but I’m trying to use as many eco-friendly products as I can.
What do you see as your company's greatest accomplishment?
Our greatest accomplishment so far is creating a reliable, competitive and quality eco-friendly board for the marketplace that stands up against all the normal boards out there.
