Surftech – PrAna collab features Algae Harvested Deck Pads

What’s even more exciting is that all of these Surftech – prAna stand up paddle boards come with BLOOM Foam deck pads made from algae.

BLOOM is a company that harvests algae from freshwater sources at high risk for toxic algae bloom. This harvesting process supports fresh water ecosystems by removing excess algae and recirculating fresh water back into the habitat.  Each BLOOM foam deck pad on the new line of Surftech-prAna paddle boards contains 20% algae biomass in order to offset each brand’s carbon footprint.   This is a great way for two leaders in the industry to #StandupfortheEnvironment!

Surftech-PrAna Sup Boards for both Flat Water & Surf

The boards are beautiful including the Aleka Tuflite V-Tech designed by Joe Bark to be stable enough for flat water while still performing well in small to medium surf.  The Tuflite V-Tech construction offers a bamboo deck veneer, includes 4 deck tie-downs, a ledge handle, a rear padded handle and a 3/4 deck pad with BLOOM technology.
