The world's first bodyboard made of recycled material! PRIDE recycled bodyboards are made in France from at least 63% recycled polyethylene (PE)! The world avoids 2 tonnes of virgin PE per year thanks to this 1 company's innovation - that's 12 tonnes of CO2 avoided - it would have taken 550 trees to absorb that. Now imagine the impact when this becomes the new normal!

PRIDE is the brand used by the reigning world men's and women's bodyboard champions. We love that it's a leader in its industry going eco...this is the best way to make eco the new normal.

Stereo is an entry-level bodyboard combining quality and eco-friendly materials - it will give you plenty of thrills at an affordable price. Suitable for cold, temperate, or warm water.

You probably need a leash if you don't have one to ensure your board isn't lost in the water. And a pair of (recycled natural rubber) flippers can make it even more fun!

The size you need depends on the user's bodyweight (shown in brackets below). Buying one for your family to share? Choose the size to suit the biggest person who'll use it.

NOTE: Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery
