In 2013 ENV founders Daniel Del Toro and David Purser set out to create a board using some pretty alternative materials never even considered in the surf industry before, Mycofoam. Finally after two years of research, development and strong collaborative effort between ourselves and Ecovative Designs, the world’s first Mycofoam (mushroom) surfboard was born aptly named Surf Organics the “El Portobello”. While the board surfs well-enough and the material is strong the issue was weight. However, our persistence and determination to use this material in some way paid off we were offered a new material from Ecovative they called Mycoboard. Head designer Danny Del Toro instantly imagined a fin made out of this mycoboard material him having made fins out of several different materials before (i.e. bamboo, wood,…) he gave it a shot and these are what he came up with.
