GIN Kiteboarding – Eco-Board

GIN Kiteboarding Eco-Board

GIN Kiteboarding unveils its brand new limited edition kiteboard, 100% Swiss made and eco-responsible!

The Eco-Board is produced in the Bern County in Switzerland and is destined mainly for the Swiss and European customers. It’s made from poplar and walnut wood from the Bern region. This is a local manufacture and uses bio-composites. The GIN Kiteboarding logo is burnt on to the board with a branding iron and gives the Eco-Board a beautifully refined look. Each board is a unique model, individually numbered with distinctive shades of the two-colored walnut wood. Each piece is carefully handcrafted.

 

Here’s some words from Fabienne Kaufmann, manager at GIN Kiteboarding:

“The eco-responsible approach of this twin-tip board is a globally innovative concept. It isn’t a simple marketing ploy that you may see a lot of these days in the market, the ecological concern is in its genes: we maximize the natural components and limit the transportation carbon footprint.”

“We went even one step further by building by hand the press (machine for sticking and compressing the layers that make the boards), nearly entirely out of wood.”
