The name is Mr Moranga, and I am one sleek, aqua-dynamic fox. My origins are hard to track, due to a portion of my heritage being reclaimed, sustainably harvested woods. The other side of the family is easier to trace, as recycled EPS foam and Entropy bio-resins. It was in San Francisco at the Woodshop that this exotic blend of materials was expertly handmade into the handsome character that I am. The final result is a mid-length board designed for smooth, fluid glide and manoeuvrability. My creator and legendary shaper, Danny Hess, is working towards building high-performance short boards made entirely out of wood and sealed with plant oils.
It is my destiny to be a superhero hygienist planetarian. My parents are Mao bamboo, mindfully grown and harvested to compliment their surroundings. Only Yao Ming grows faster than bamboo. Historians say that my ancestors have been doing wonders in China for over 4000 years, symbolising freshness, purity and mercy. Damn, I come from some chillers. Turns out I'm not only antimicrobial, but my bamboo bristles are great to clean.
So that's what I am best at, I get right in your mouth and scrape for a living. Smoothly going in motions of all sorts controlling bacteria and keeping your mouth ready. I am also generous as fuck, I give 20% of my income to charities. When you need me I come to you on the bad-ass GotWoodMobile! Made from 100% recycled materials and natural-based inks. Dispose of me responsibly to make my existence worthwhile.
The Minnow Cruiser has strong connections to its traditional home on the Chilean coastline. Ma and pa were drifters, discarded fishnets floating around the Pacific Ocean. They met through Net Positiva, essentially a dating program for stray fishnets, created by Bureo Skateboards. In desperate search for a better life, the fishnets were taken to a recycling plant in Santiago. It was here where lil Minnow the straight up Cruiser was born.
So far, this initiative has salvaged and recycled over 20'000ft of fishnets.
A local to Bali, the Double Six is the product of a cluster-fuck of tyres, vegan leather and a dash of nylon.

The Wax Comb is made from a natural composite resin, coming from a long line of ancestors native to the Cornish wild landscapes. The materials are of great beauty, yet traditional industries do not appreciate.

Two like-minded teams Solidwool and Finisterre, captivated by the beauty of these materials crafted a strong and salvaged Wax Comb.
