Ready to ride wood?
One of KAYU’s lead objectives is to be very committed to the environment and reducing their footprint on the planet, therefore we use balsa wood. Originating from the balsa tree, also known as Ocroma Pyramidale.
The lightweight nature of balsa, makes it the perfect material for a light wooden surfboard.
KAYU Surfboards are manufactured to appeal the driven beginner, all the way to the cultured advanced surfer. Known for its low density and high strength, it is also incredibly buoyant.
When looked after carefully, these surfboards are designed to last a lifetime.
KAYU is wood in Indonesian and Balinese languages. Our roots are in Indonesia and all our raw materials are sourced from local small scale plantations in East Java.
We effectively source our own materials, while our true suppliers are those that cultivate the balsa tree.
