W2W @ Volcom Pipe Pro


The waves are firing at Pipe and now we are collecting styrofoam at he Volcom Pipe Pro 2013.  During the waiting period, you can bring your waste foam to the surf shop, Tropical Rush, in Haleiwa.

You can literally “Turn your trash to slash” by bringing your waste foam to Tropical Rush.

Several pro surfers at the contest have surfboards made from recycled EPS surfboard blanks, and they love how the recycled blanks surf. Check out this video from Torrey Meister riding a Roberts surfboard made from Marko recycled EPS and Entropy Super Sap Resin.

Everpaddle SUP and Surfrider Hawaii are helping with logistics, and Pacific Allied Products is processing the collected foam to be recycled into new surfboards and other products.

Only clean, white polystyrene foam can be collected and recycled.  If the foam is food contaminated, discolored, or not white, it cannot be recycled into new surfboard blanks.  Packing peanuts also cannot be recycled, as these are not polystyrene foam.  A complete list of acceptable materials is located at: http://wastetowaves.org/faq
