I have always liked the example of a bagel store when it comes to being wise with the resources we use and the waste we create.
If you go into a bagel store right now, you can buy a fresh bagel that was made this morning. They likely have your favorite flavor/variety in stock and ready to go.
Any bagels that don't sell today don't get tossed in the garbage, they get bundled up into bags and sold in bundles tomorrow as Day Old Bagels.
If the Day Old Bagels don't sell, you slice them up into thinner slices, throw them in the oven, and all of a sudden you've got Bagel Chips. Bagel Chips are the third iteration of the fresh bagel from a few days ago, but they're still something good.
Seemingly nothing goes to waste in a bagel shop, except maybe the cream cheese. Pretty sure there's not much you can recycled expired dairy in to.
Used boards are kind of the bagel chips of the surfboard world. They've been through a bit more abuse, but they're still darn good, and oftentimes better for you than a poorly made alternative.
Keep and eye on our Surfboards For Sale page to see which used boards may filter through.
