A core 3 times stronger than foam
According to our tests with laboratories, it takes 3 times more energy to break a WYVE 4DCore than to damage a Polyurethane foam blank (used in 80% of boards on the market).
In the event of a big impact which leads to water infiltration into the board, the water can be drained out using the valve on the tail.
The core does not absorb water, you just need to do a classic repair (epoxy kit) at the location of the impact and the board is like new!

The board of the future must necessarily have a reduced environmental impact. In our development approach, we have chosen to see eco-design not as a constraint but, on the contrary, as a challenge and an opportunity to innovate to create better products. This is why this issue has been present from day one!
Here's where we are:
70% bio-sourced materials in the board. The entire heart of the board is made from a bio-plastic from sugar cane. The resin used is 50% bio-sourced. This allows us to benefit from the Gold Standard label from Sustainable Surf.
According to a study conducted by the Think+ and Notox agency, a Wyve board emits 40% less greenhouse gases during its manufacturing compared to a traditional polyurethane board of the same dimensions.
Durability : We build our boards to maximize strength and make them repairable with a drain system.
The micro-factory production system is designed for local manufacturing which creates local jobs, does not relocate our impact and reduces transport.
