A coastal gear brand named Sympl has unveiled a collection of sustainable board bags, traction pads, and leashes. The eco-friendly and sustainable measures make them the first hardgoods brand to fully commit to global responsibility.

Founder of Sympl, Frankie Cuda, announced:

“This move to sustainability is significant for us, as it’s the next step in our evolution as a brand, moving to a fully sustainable supply chain and product range.

If we protect the planet, it will protect us. It’s symplº

Take a look at some of their eco-friendly products below:

The Rolls Board Bag:

The Rolls board bag is built with special compression technology that allows it to shrink and expand, depending on the number of boards. This makes able to fit 1-3 surfboards securely, without leaving any wiggle room. No more jamming pool noodles into the sides of a bag with too much room. The entire bag also rolls up, making it easy to transport and store.

Eco-Good Traction Pads:

All of Sympl’s traction pads are fully biodegradable, reducing harmful foam in the environment. They offer a variety of sizes, too, creating proper pads for wide boards like fishes and grovelers. No matter what weird wave craft you find on craigslist, Sympl has a pad for it.
