Surfboards are a dirty business. There is a lot of waste, and non-biodegradable materials involved. Progress has been slow to develop more environmentally friendly materials. Luckily a few brands have been pushing the envelope to bring us materials with a smaller footprint than your standard polyurethane surfboard.
All Chemistry models can now be built with Arctic Foam Algenesis which is foam blown from algae. Glassed with flax seed cloth from Colan & Douglas Surf co, and super sap resin from Entropy. This is as close to an eco board that you can possibly get right now. The only non biodegradable materials left in the board are fin and leash plug.
These boards do take a lot longer to build so patience is a must. That being said they come out just as good as any poly or epoxy you can find.

We are into another season here at Chemistry surfboards. Summer was pretty eventful for surf. Nothing huge came through but it was rideable nearly every damn day. We can't complain about that, especially when the water was hovering around the 76 degree mark all month of August. We are almost into October and it's around that 70 degree mark. Our fingers are now crossed for a few Santa Ana wind event days going forward. These tend to be the best waves we get all year, and if you know what beach break to head to, you can really get into some quality surf.
This fall, take $100 off your custom R2+ or Chem Zenagain customs. Simply type in the promo code fallinlove02 into the coupon code when checking out. We want to get you the best step up under your feet so don't miss out on these savings. This promotion will go all the way through fall, so if you're waiting to pull the trigger on a new custom you have some time to get your order ready.
Once again we'd like to thank all of you for your continued support. We wouldn't be able to build the best customs available in the USA without your continued support. From all of us at Chemistry, thank you so much. See you in the water!

Have you ever had an idea for a surfboard design that has yet to be shaped? Well here’s your chance to build your own Chemistry Surfboard from the ground up with our #CreateMyChem Instagram contest. The rules are easy…
1. Follow @ChemistrySurfboards on Instagram.
2. Download (link in bio) and print your #CreateMyChem contest entry and fill it out. Leave no spaces blank and be as detailed as possible. Feel free to design your board by hand or on the computer.
3. Upload your entry form to your Instagram feed and #CreateMyChem as well as @ChemistrySurfboards.
We have seen A LOT of boards in the past 17 years, so we are looking for something totally creative and original, yet functional. Do not leave any spaces in the order form blank, as head shaper Jason Bennett will be shaping the winning design! Every detail is important to get your board exactly how you envisioned it! Your board can be constructed with a poly, eps, or flextronic blank, and glassed with either poly or epoxy resin. Jason will determine one ultimate winner on July 4th to get their creation built, as well as having your design added to the Chemistry Surfboards line for the remainder of the summer. Second and third place contestants will receive a Chemistry prize pack. International submissions will be accepted, but the winner (if chosen) must figure out shipping on their own. We wish everyone who enters good luck!
