Just a few months ago, we introduced you to Cliff Kapono.

We described his passion for surfing and science, and how those passions led him on a global quest to examine the microbial backgrounds of surfers. Well, it turns out his quest to improve the world through surfing doesn’t stop there.

Cliff just posted this video, in conjunction with Raynor surfboards, to highlight the viability of bio-based surfboards — something that would be significantly safer than a standard surfboard construction. The video states that roughly 400,000 surfboards are produced annually, and most of them ultimately end up in landfills or polluting natural waterways. Cliff figures that by using natural materials, old boards would be able to safely decompose and thusly not have such a big impact on our environment.

Watch the video for more details, this cold be a game changer
