Hard SUPs

We at Earthwire Boards Australia emphasize on quality, quality and yes, quality!

The SUP quality is critical. It affects not only your board’s longevity and durability but also your performance and the complete experience.

To provide you with a complete idea of how our one-of-a-kind boards are made, let’s look into the history of board production.

Originally, surfboards were made out of hard and heavy wood such as Cedar, Redwood, and Wili-Wili. Consequently, these boards were quite heavy – almost the weight of a young adult! They were hard to carry, difficult to manage and could not provide the experience that those “pioneer” sailors were looking for.

In the 1930s, water sports became popular with the development of boards into lighter ones by mixing the wood with lighter balsa wood. These boards were so easy to handle that by 1940s, the first boards made entirely of balsa wood emerged. The problem, however, was durability. These boards could not last ling, and they were not yet for everyone. This led to the surfboard manufacturers looking for answers.

The industrialization soon provided the best possible material – Foam.

With the use of foam, in the 1960s, surfboard manufacturing was completely changed. Sandwich construction method gives you surfboards emerged with the lightest weight and durability.With the right construction method, these boards can offer you a balance and move like no other. You can even workout on these boards – yoga, stretching and what not!

With amazing bamboo board designs (because of looks matter) and the fun that the boards will provide, we’re sure you’d like to know some of the boards that can take your performance to another level! Bamboo, being harder than steel and more durable than other hardwoods, is a manufacturing product that ensures the safety of the users.
