Cork + Conservation + Sustainability + Upcycling

CORK is a natural product that is used on the board surface and out of which our rolls are made exclusively. Cork provides a very comfortable feeling when used barefoot (recommended), thus helping to relocate your center of gravity naturally. Cork is naturally hypoallergenic, provides great grip and does not create unwanted odors. The solid cork roll slides smoothly, providing a good grip between the board and the floor.

 

Buy our Cork products and you can directly support the continuity of cork oak forests!

 

The cork oak (Quercus suber) is a worldwide unique tree, as its bark is harvested still by hand without harming the alive tree. New bark, the cork, continuous to grow and can be harvested after another 9 years. The sustainable and integrated agroforestry “Montado” of cork oak forests protects and maintains a unique ecosystem that is home to million of plants and animals, from which some as the Iberian lynx and Eastern imperial eagle are strongly endangered.


The stoppers located at each end of the bottom of the board are covered with tire rubber. The rubber absorbs the impact between the floor and the board provides a smooth feeling without provoking unpleasant noises or scratches. This means training in your flat won’t be a problem anymore for your neighbour below!
