Firewire Surfboards and Rob Machado introduce Woolight

Firewire Surfboards Woolight

Woolight – a method of building surfboards with sustainably sheared wool from sheep shepherded on Pamu Certified farms in New Zealand.

Each Woolight Seaside has a bespoke look, resulting from the naturally occurring fibers used to build it.

Each Woolight Seaside has a bespoke look, resulting from the naturally occurring fibers used to build it.

Firewire’s emphasis on sustainability goes beyond up-cycling EPS waste into paving stones or making traction pads using algae sourced from freshwater habitats.

Every surfboard we make is built under Sustainable Surf’s ECOBOARD standard and Woolight is an extension of that – an effort to recognize that in some cases nature may have already perfected what man has created.

In this case, fiberglass.

Woolight uses half the fiberglass of a normal Helium build by substituting two sheets of fiberglass (one on the deck and one on the bottom) with two sheets of wool, thanks to a proprietary process invented by New Zealand surfboard builder and craftsman Paul Barron.

Woolight is more than cosmetics.

It looks colorful, yes, but the color is only dye added to wool within a build process that brings structural integrity to each Woolight board the same way that Paulownia wood brings strength and form to each Timbertek shape.
