London, Mar 20 (ANI): An environmentally friendly surfboard made from balsa tree is set to revolutionise the surfing industry.

According to the creators from Eden Project in Cornwall, the new surfboards have been made from plant-derived material, and a resin was developed from linseed oil to coat the board.

The move is likely to replace the petroleum chemicals used in traditional surfboard production.

Eden’’s retail director, Mark Beeley, called the creation as “revolutionary”.

“At last we are able to offer surfers the chance to own one of the most sustainable surfboards in the world, available right here in the UK,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying. (ANI)
