This thesis examines the sustainability of traditional surfboard production. Conducting multiple LCAs, the analysis compares the CO2e of traditional surfboards to a wooden surfboard built by the author. The wooden surfboard is not intended to replace the modern surfboard. It is a symbol that is meant to reminds us of the natural relationship between surfing and the environment.
