Starboard to produce surfboard components made from discarded fishing nets

Off 12

Starboard and Royal DSM teamed up to create surfboard components made from discarded fishing nets.

The watersports company founded by Svein Rasmussen, and the Dutch nutrition, health, and sustainable living firm will start collecting abandoned fishing nets from the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea.

Later, the joint-venture will upcycle the nylon-based nets and produce several surf gear items including fin boxes, fins, stand-up paddleboard pumps, and other parts that can be used in surfboards.
