The unprecedented global health threat that impacted every corner of the planet is now damaging the health of our oceans. The vast waste that results from Covid-19 urges us to raise awareness for the shapes that nobody wants to see in the ocean. This is an Open Call to all shapers to submit their best projects for the surfboards they want to shape with Covid-19 waste.

The winners will see their boards funded and ridden by the best surfers in the world at a Special Heat of the MEO Peniche PRO 2021.

The pursuit starts now.

Every year each of us produces over 30kg of plastic waste. If nothing changes, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans. Portugal is one of the worst affected countries since it has a maritime territory 40 times larger than its land area.


MEO has taken the initiative to develop 5 surfboards made entirely of plastic that a person produces at home. These boards will be used by the best surfers on the planet at the World Tour in Peniche.

The board is made from a "sandwich" structure composed of a recycled EPS blade and household plastics. The uniformity of the shape is achieved with a compactness of the assembly, and the bonding between materials is achieved through epoxy resin with a component that improves the adhesion between the various qualities of plastic.

The outer surface is coated with 6oz fiberglass, two layers on the deck and one on the bottom, making the final look like a conventional board.​
