Mushroom® Surfboards

To surf is to be one with nature while riding the energy of a wave; many of today's surfboards are constructed of materials that are unnatural and can be damaging to nature. Mushroom® Materials are a bio-based, biodegradable, and rapidly renewable alternative to surfboard blanks, fins, and handplanes.

We are not currently growing or producing surfboard blanks in-house, but we still want to be able to share our foam replacement technology with you. Through our Grow It Yourself program, we hope that you will create some really awesome sustainable boards, and then even scale them if you'd like! If you go to you'll see more information on how to make this possible.

Technology Available for Testing

Blank Core

Ecovative is not currently growing or producing this technology. If you're interested in surfboard blanks we recommend our Grow It Yourself program.

Grow It Yourself


Ecovative exchanges non-natural fins with a Myco Board wood-replacement. Using a variation of Myco Foam production, Ecovative grows an easily cut or custom molded material with the same strength-weight ratio as typical MDF.

Handplanes suffer from similar limitations; they are predominantly constructed from toxic foams or non-rapidly-renewable woods. Ecovative can mold an existing handplane design (whether wood or foam), requiring only finishing.

Why Surfboards?

Ecovative's Mushroom Materials address the accumulation of ocean plastics by replacing expanded polystyrene and other plastics with two distinct applications of our materials. Beyond Mushroom Packaging, the second application is a direct substitution for many marine and freshwater foam-based plastics. Ecovative's Mushroom Materials float, are comparable, and have other structural characteristics that make it excellent for use in marine applications.
