Does surfing effect the environment in a negative way?

    Although surfing itself does not impact the environment in a negative way, many of the necessary equipment and traveling involved in surfing does have a negative impact. Surf boards are made of polymers which are poisonous, and the technology for producing a surfboard has not changed since the 1950’s. The making of a surfboard results in poisonous TDI or MDI fumes, volatile organic compounds, and large amounts of difficult-to-break-down waste. Furthermore, surfers often travel to far-away locations, whether by car or by plane, in order to find the perfect wave.
    Recently there has been a move by many of the large surf companies to become more environmentally friendly in the production of their products.
