San Clemente, California - June 2, 2011 – Rerip is proud to announce the establishment of its first surfboard recycling location outside of San Diego County. Noll Surfboards in San Clemente is now accepting surfboards for recycling, becoming the newest Rerip recycling location and the first to expand the program outside the San Diego area.
Noll Surfboards hosted its grand opening on March 26th, 2011. The shop combines a retail surf emporium with a small but functional surfboard manufacturing facility and an ocean-oriented art gallery. This art gallery features fine art paintings and sculptures as well as an array of those classic re-creation surfboards. Jed Noll, Surfboard Shaper, shop owner and son of surfing great Greg Noll, is excited to have a recycling component at the location. “We are excited to incorporate a surfboard collection component into our shop offerings. In addition to providing artistic inspiration and classic surfboard construction, it’s just one more way we can be a positive surf resource for the San Clemente community.”
Surfboards in any condition can be dropped off at Rerip recycling locations, including Noll Surfboards. Donated boards are separated into categories—surfable, repairable, and creative. Surfable and repairable boards are donated to local and international youth programs or resold at low prices to support the recycling program.
Unrideable boards and remnants are used for the Rerip artist network and research and development opportunities. Rerip connects with a growing number of artists who use the boards for artistic endeavors, including paintings, sculptures and furniture. Other boards are tested for lifespan features aiming to promote new cleaner surfboard construction materials and method
Rerip.org is an organization striving to keep boards out of landfills and encouraging action sports enthusiasts to Rerip their gear. Run by a team of volunteers, Rerip offers free online classifieds, hosts annual events and awareness campaigns, and is growing a Surfboard Recycling Program up the California coast. Check out a new volunteer-made video documentary about the company and their mission on the site’s homepage.
