Yana Surf wood surfboards offer an environmentally sound alternative to conventional foam surf craft. Our balsa wood surfboards are created with a minimum impact on the environment as well as the craftsmen who shape them. Strong and aesthetically beautiful, our wood surfboards are hand-shaped by master craftsmen and designed by artists.
The balsa wood we use to build wood surfboards grows very rapidly on carefully maintained Ecuadorian plantations, eliminating the problem of depletion of trees and allowing the resources of the nearby rainforest to be preserved. Balsa wood is known for its perfect balance of strength and lightness, an excellent material for creating beautiful wood surf craft.
Yana Surf partners with people and organizations that are passionate about the ocean and environment and believe in making the earth a better, healthier place for us all to live. Learn more about the riders, craftsmen, artists and charities that work with Yana Surf.
