It's easy to repair your Wyve board with a standard commercial repair kit. If the board has taken on water, you'll need to drain it via the valve. A small ding can be repaired with a Solarez, a larger one by any shaper.

Unlike a traditional board, whose foam pad soaks water, our openwork structure allows the board to be drained. The valve on the tail is easily opened using a tool supplied with the board. Once open, the water will naturally flow down to empty itself (all hexagons are connected to each other). Once empty, simply repair and screw the valve back on. In the event of damage to the internal PLA structure, we can reprint the missing part(s) and reassemble them.

We are currently developing a process to recycle 100% of our surfboards' internal plastic structure, as well as the offcuts from 3D printing, in order to directly reuse this recycled plastic to build new ones.

We spent 3 years in R&D to make the strongest board possible, while keeping it light and powerful. Our laboratory impact tests prove that a WYVE board absorbs 3x more energy than a traditional board. Thanks to the materials used, their increased strength and ease of repair, Wyve boards are more durable than traditional boards.

We apply between 2 and 4 layers of fiber, depending on the board. We use a different fiber weight from traditional planks.

The cross between Wave and Hive forms WYVE: the new wave for the boards of the future.

Thanks to the internal structure of our boards, we are able to control flex by modifying the design or density of our materials. We are constantly working in Research and Development on this subject. The flex of the boards we sell today is somewhere between a PU/Polyester board and an EPS/Epoxy board.

For the same volume, a Wyve surfboard weighs the same as a conventional board with a PU foam pad. Thanks to our 3D printing technology, we can adjust the board's weight and distribution to the surfer's riding style.

  • Durability: A Wyve board is more resistant to impact than an EPS/Epoxy board (our mechanical tests show 3x greater resistance). It's also easier to drain thanks to the Gore-Tex valve.
  • Versatility: At equivalent weight, it's less rigid and surfs very well, even in windy conditions.
  • Eco-design: Wyve boards have no foam core, but a 3D-printed internal structure made from sugarcane bio-plastic. The environmental impact of their production is 40% lower - in CO2 equivalent - than that of a traditional PU board (according to the comparative Life Cycle Analysis of our products).
