I insist on doing things ethically for the futur of our Amazigh coast, eco designed and easy to repair. Behind this idea is to educate tourist on how to respect our environment and create the best experience for travelers and for us amazigh surfers (but also berberes, europeens, and all arab tourists of all nations.
I have met @unknown_author in Tarfaya (the little prince city) and he thought that getting the regular surfboard from tourists was not sustainable and too expensive/fragile in the long term (+ tourists are enough polluting the ecosystem already). He thinks that we need solid surfboards but we also need to find the best sustainable local ways to do so.
Perhaps I want to find Paulwonia wood, its a japanesse tree that also grows into our dry region as it doesn’t need so much water and is super solid and flexible enough to create beautiful designed rideable surfs. I have no idea if we build boards ourselves the amount of wood needed…also I hope we do not destroy the ecosystem by collecting to much wood from nature so we need to study that environmental question.
For the rest we need few tools and eco glue…perhaps some eco resin and fibre (hempf or else probably)
We could also make Kite surfs, snow boards (for atlas mountain) or even wooden spoons (Its morocco speciality with Thuya wood) and other kind of wood furnitures if needed….carpenters and wood craft master wood be nice to have while we work around…
