FOSSIL FUELS

Board Version

If you weigh less than 100 kg, choose REGULAR. If you have more than 100 kg, please choose STRONG.

Presenting you one of the 2021 designs of our most recent COSTABOARD ARTIST SERIES Ocean Awareness Collection by the artist Alex Rosa.

This FOSSIL FUELS design is meant to criticize our dependency on fossil fuels, which is ultimately harming all of us. We keep on burning tremendous amounts of fossil fuels, releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere - in particular CO2. Seawater, in effect, captures CO2 to a large degree, which decreases the pH-level and causes acidification! Ocean acidification impacts many marine species, in particular corals. Coral reefs support 25% of marine biodiversity, so their destruction is a massive loss. The impact of acidification extends profoundly to the food chain, also affecting human life. We depend on a healthy ocean, such as innumerous species, so let’s stop harming it!

Alex Rosa says: “We must reduce our carbon footprint by avoiding and replacing activities and products that rely on fossil fuels.”

Ride this special COSTABOARD and raise awareness for FOSSIL FUELS!

INTRODUCING ALEX ROSA ARTIST SERIES

ALEX ROSA’S BIOGRAPHY

Alex Rosa is a 24-year-old Portuguese artist. She studied in Portugal and in Belgium and holds a degree in Nutrition Sciences. However, over the years, she realized that her call and purpose was a different one: Art.


Through a deep connection with nature and through travelling, Alex realized the importance of freedom, self-development and wilderness to our own existence. For this reason, she combines her two biggest passions - nature and art - by expressing strong messages that aim at raising awareness for nature conservation, in particular in the oceans.


She is a self-taught artist who draws with different materials, paints boards, tattoos and is taking her first steps with mural art. She seeks to evolve in her artwork, conveying messages that may contribute to change people’s attitudes towards nature. Art is Alex’s most authentic way of expression, which she dearly embraces as her own challenging and endless road.

COSTABOARD Version 2021

Our new surface made from European wood doesn’t only look dope it also feels smooth but still offers you the ideal grip whether you are COSTABOARDING barefoot or with your shoes on.
Every COSTABOARD is one of a kind and since it’s a natural product the structure and look of the wood may vary. On top of that, we found a high-tech solution to bring crisp graphics on your board without using plastic foil. The print is now INSIDE the wood, not ON TOP of it like it used to be. Therefore the days of rubbed-off prints are counted! Your board will look sexy happily ever after.
Moreover, every 2021 COSTABOARD comes with rounded edges which create more room for maneuvering while you are riding barefoot over the edges. They make your ride smoother and your COSTABOARD will look more elegant than ever before.

All COSTABOARD specs summed up:

+ WOOD PRINT
: sexy, plastic-free prints, perfect grip barefoot and with shoes
+ ROUNDED EDGES: for a better look and feel
+ OG COSTABOARD SHAPE: nose and tail for your ultimate tricks variations
+ ROCKER SHAPE: our board is bent like a banana which translates into a natural riding experience; makes your board faster and turns easier
+ FLEX: the unique “sandwich construction” brings elasticity to the board; nicer riding experience and better for more tricks
+ LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION:makes the board very easy to turn; gives the board a lot of “pop” for pro tricks (meaning you can more easily “kick the board into the air”). Perfect, lightweight travel companion.
+ REGULAR or STRONG: to ensure the right flex for you depending on your weight (<100 kg = REGULAR, >100 kg = STRONG)
+ MATERIAL: wood from Europe
+ DIMENSIONS: 78 x 31 cm x 1,2 cm (REGULAR) / 1,6 cm (STRONG)
+ WEIGHT: REGULAR 1,3 kg, STRONG: 1,7 kg

+ COSTABOARD


+ COSTABOARD ROLLER 



Our COSTABOARD is made with love, passion and perfection in our own manufacture in the coworking space KAOS BERLIN. By real people who really care about the product, each other, our planet and who spreads good vibes all around. They make sure to pack these good vibes into every COSTABOARD package, since “sharing is caring”!

REGULAR or STRONG version

We recommend the REGULAR version up to a body weight of 100 kg. From 100 kg body weight, there is the STRONG version with 3 more veneer layers, at no extra charge.
Due to our “sandwich construction”, our COSTABOARD has a unique so called FLEX.
This FLEX is responsible for the elasticity of our board and the feel when riding it. It feels natural. Not like riding a stiff piece of wood.

To guarantee the optimal FLEX for every weight class, we build the COSTABOARD in two versions.

If you have +/-100 kg, you can just try one version and if you have the feeling that you need a thicker or thinner board, just let us know and we will be happy to change it for you.
