ENV was founded in 2015 in the wake of the first Mycofoam (mushroom) surfboard the “El Portobello”. Daniel Del Toro and David Purser of surf organic boards teamed up with Nicholas Hildebrandt a young eco-warrior from Hong Kong and ENV was born. Realizing that a mushroom board was going to be to difficult to mass produce we opted to manufacture only level 1 ECOBOARDS at our R&D center in Mira Loma, CA. and at our ENV Glassing Facility in Rosarito Beach, bc.mx we will be doing both Level 1 and Gold Level Sustainable Surf certified ECOBOARDS.
As a team our goal is to provide the highest quality eco-friendly surf craft without sacrificing performance or style.
Received an honorable mentions at the 2015 Boardroom Shows Best in Show for best use of hemp and innovative design.
We also plan to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the realm of ECOBOARD manufacturing by hopefully becoming the 2nd Zero Waste surfboard manufacturing facility by teaming up with Living Earth Systems in the very near future and also receiving a Gold Level validation from Sustainable Surf.
