Every material has a decay rate (wood, metal, glass, plastic etc..). Microplastics in our watersheds & oceans is creating difficulties in our environment. Newf Surf (www.newfsurfboard.wpengine.com) & many other Surf/SUP/Race bags bags are made with some type of polyester/plastics. We decided to keep our bags out of the landfill as long as possible by putting a lifetime warranty so you can hand your bag down to your kids & grandkids & out of the landfill. Made in California, starting $33.00, colors & sizes 5’4″-14’0″. 1% of the sale of each bag sold goes to our 6-1% for the Planet sponsorships doing their part in protecting our watershed from summit to sea.
