FANATIC OCEAN MINDED

To play in the ocean, we have to take care of it. That’s why every Fanatic board proudly displays the Fanatic Ocean Minded logo. It’s our promise to build our boards with a cleaner, greener environment in mind. In 2013, we became the first brand to use ecologically-friendly cork in our boards, and will continue to do so in 2014. While much of the board-building industry still relies on toxic, harmful processes to build boards, Fanatic does everything it can to offset our carbon footprint. We’re also using ethically-sourced and sustainable raw materials whenever possible – for both the health of the planet and its people. This never-ending mission to improve our processes and product will have us constantly tweaking and tuning our construction techniques, packaging materials, and distribution methods – all for a better Fanatic future.
