Maluku The Shake Eco Gold Futures 5 Fin Surfboard
- Colour: Grey
Item code: 260363
The Shake is Maluku’s round-nosed, diamond-tailed, high-volume solution to all your small-wave woes. It's a little gem of a board – and it’s now available as a Gold Level ECOBOARD!
This is the highest certification awarded by Sustainable Surf, who deemed the materials used in its construction to meet their Gold Level standards (at least 25% either recycled or bio-carbon content in the foam core, which must then be glassed using plant-based resin with low VOC plus at least 25% bio-carbon content). The Maluku factory in Cornwall also had to undergo a comprehensive lifecycle assessment, focussing on carbon footprint, toxicity and recycling. As a result of all this, Maluku has become the first and only surfboard manufacturer in the UK to offer Gold Level ECOBOARDS.
The Maluku Shake Eco Gold was designed and built with one main aim: to make one of the world’s most sustainable surfboards, and to do so without sacrificing performance. The factory it’s made in recycles all its foam and runs on a renewable energy contract; the board is made from a recycled Marko foam blank and bio-resin; the Futures fin boxes have been chosen so it can be ridden with the new Netplus fins, which are made from retrieved ghost fishing nets.
The board itself is a short and playful small-wave weapon, combining almost mid-length float and glide with the snappy manoeuvrability of a shortboard. It’s a bundle of fun – the volume up-front makes for easy paddling and entry, the rolled vee adds a slight retro touch, favouring smooth lines and stopping the round nose from pearling, but the tail is sufficiently refined to enable a more vertical line of attack. Another winner from Bill Atlee and the Maluku crew.
