Taking a new innovative direction in the quest for fully sustainable surfboards, Barron Surfboards have invented a new wool cloth sourced from New Zealand sheep.
By collaborating with NZ Merino and Firewire Surfboards, and after over years of testing and refining, we have come up with this sustainable cloth that replaces traditional fibreglass, providing strength and flex characteristics that we feel rival the status quo.
The result is a natural looking board that performs at least as well as traditional PU or Epoxy boards, is better for the environment and supports the New Zealand wool industry too, not baaaad huh!

While the idea for Woolight was for sustainable New Zealand made surfboards using local wool, the uses for this technology reach far beyond surfing.
Because it is a eco friendly replacement for fibreglass, it can be used in almost any situation fibreglass is utilised. Also by using Woolight your are supporting local farmers, and the New Zealand economy too. It's a win win for the environment and New Zealand!
Some other uses are;
- Marine - Boats, Kayaks, SUPS, Kiteboards, Outriggers, Fins
- Automotive - Components and Body Kits
- Pools - Swimming Pools, Baths, Spas
It can also be used for Custom Products - Contact us today to discuss using Woolight for your project, we can design and prototype inhouse.
