14'0 NOVA SCOTIA x 28"

Deep into nature

The NOVA SCOTIA 14’ x 28” is the Biscayne’s larger cousin, designed for Touring & Exploration where efficiency, speed and added space are a factor.
Ideal for medium to heavy riders (75-110 kg / 165- 240+lbs), the Nova Scotia’s unique chine and bottom contours, similar to the Biscayne, keep it stable in all water conditions even when loaded front and back with dry bags full of gear. Reinforced attachment points allow you to secure equipment and accessory items with ease. The rails are reinforced with flax fiber, known as ‘natures kevlar’, for added durability both on and off the water. A Cork deck pad provides exceptional comfort.

Cork deck pad

1 - CORK Cork is widely used in the shoe industry because of its natural comfort and shock absorbing properties. Our EARTH SUP Deck Pads feature this renewable resource for the same reasons.
2 - PAULOWNIA WOOD Paulowina is fast-growing, lightweight, warp-resistant and strong. The deck of all boards features this exceptionally durable, beautiful and renewable wood. It is also used on the bottom of some SUP boards.
3 - FLAX FIBER Flax fiber is a naturally sourced material that has very similar properties to fiberglass. It has similar flex and tensile strength, but is more durable, and is often referred to as “nature’s Kevlar”. Flax fiber is used on the rails and/or bottom of all EARTH SURF & SUP boards.
VARNISH-FREE No varnish and minimal paint is used for the graphics, decoration or finishing, as these products tend to be toxic and also are hazardous for to work with.
MINIMAL FIBERGLASS The only fiberglass that is used is for the finishing of the board, and the quantity of this man-made mineral fiber is kept to a minimum.

Technology

Sourced from nature

We have carefully selected materials which are bio-sourced and also have the necessary technical properties to ensure solid construction and performance. Flax fiber, Paulownia wood and Cork wood have been tested and proven in other industries and they now play a key role in the sourcing and production of EARTH SURF & SUP boards. Looking towards the future, potential areas of ongoing development include the sourcing of materials for the foam core, the resins used in EARTH SURF & SUP boards, and the packaging. We currently use polystyrene foam for the core of EARTH SURF & SUP boards. While this foam is recyclable it is nonetheless a petroleum derivative. Research of alternative materials continues and we plan to transition to a bio-sourced material as soon as feasible. The same is true of bio-resins. For now we continue to use epoxy resin due to the limitations in performance of currently available bio-resins. We will move to a new resin as soon as an acceptable alternative is found. Finally, we plan to optimize the packaging of EARTH SURF & SUP boards as soon as a feasible and a practical solution has been found.
