Romain PAUL

After about ten years working in advertising and shaping surfboards as amateur, Romain decided to dedicate himself to what's been in his mind for many years now : design and manufacture a new generation of sustainable surfboards. Passionate surfer since his early childhood, Romain experienced the paradox between the eco friendly mindsets of most surfers and the toxicity of the equipment they use. After 3 years in R&D, the Yuyo surfboards entered the market last summer : a 3D printed recycled plastic core structure covered with a biocomposite layer made of natural basalt fiber and plant based bioresin.
