Eco-Friendly Bodyboard from Fatyak
Cheap polystyrene boards are becoming a real problem on some of the UK’s beaches, with up to 600 boards being collected from Westcountry beaches in the summer of 2016 .
Neil Hembrow, BeachCare Officer, said: “The amount of these cheap broken polystyrene boards we find is incredible. 600 in August alone from a few beaches. If we collected these UK wide we’d have a huge warehouse full. I’d encourage anyone visiting our beaches to buy a better quality board that will last a lot longer. Although better quality boards may cost more they will last 10 summer holidays rather than 10 minutes.” Read the full article here.
3 year warranty
Fatyak’s bodyboard, the Hönö is made of a high quality plastic which will last for many seasons. This makes it a great eco-friendly bodyboard option. We are proud to say that we now have a 3 year warranty on all of our kayaks and boards. Therefore, every Hönö bought will result in a reduction of waste for our beaches and landfill!
Lower carbon footprint
The Hönö is manufactured in the UK, therefore making it a low-carbon alternative to the cheap boards which are almost all made in China and imported. These cheap boards are shipped across the planet to end up in our landfill sites – It is such an incredible waste! The Fatyak factory is in Williton, Somerset.
Not only is the Hönö eco-friendly due to it’s durability, it’s also really versatile. Play in the waves for hours without it snapping, surf the sand dunes or use it as a sledge in the snow! It really is a multi-purpose fun board for the whole year round.
