Paradoxal Surfboards focuses on lAdvances in the exploitation of algal biomass to manufacture large volume parts by combining thermoplastics, thermosets and biosourced fibers. 

This innovation allows the use by 3D printing of an algal resource as a substitute for oil (polystyrenene or polyurethane) commonly used in the manufacture of the internal structures of surfboards around the world.


The technicality and precision of the work of a 3D printer is of the order of a micrometer (1mm/1000). This allows the correct distribution of material loads (without generating waste), the efficiencye of fracture primers of the printed object and the structural study RDM (Resistance of Materials) made to measure, at the weak points detected on a board.

Studies in RDM and deformation of surfboard structures are essential to the challenges of validating the performance and mechanical resistance of our surfboards.

3D printing technology offers the possibility of specifically reinforcing areas that experience significant bending and torsion stress on a surfboard. Unlike a one-piece design like that of a polystyrene core, 3D printing makes it possible to create an internal structure in the form of a circular lattice made up of empty cavities. This configuration gives the board greater resistance by preserving it from dents associated with regular use.



At Paradoxal Surfboards, we dedicate our research to eco-design and the use of new biosourced materials to develop solutions with less impact on the environment.








PARADOXAL SURFBOARDS designs, manufactures and markets 3D printed surfboards using ocean waste as a substitute for materials made from petroleum commonly used in the traditional manufacturing of surfboards in the sport industry.

The company specializes in three key areas: the sourcing of materials, the creation and design development of 3D printed surfboards, as well as the development of innovative concepts such as the creation of water sports equipment in 3D printing at from marine waste.

Sourcing Mmaterials 

Paradoxal Surfboards' expertise extends beyond the simple design of surfboards, also encompassing in-depth knowledge of the sourcing of materials from the recovery of marine waste. Whether it is the selection of advanced composites, high quality resins or other essential elements, Paradoxal Surfboards is committed to ensuring the quality and durability of materialsux used in each project.

Creation and Development of Pla Design3D Printed Surfboards

As a leading professional in the field of 3D printed surfboard design, Paradoxal Surfboards implements an innovative and forward-thinking approach. His expertiseit extends from from initial 3D modeling to final production, integrating the latest technologies to create tailor-made boards that combine performance, aesthetics and durability.

Concept Development

Paradoxal Surfboards' involvement goes beyond simple technical implementation,enduring the conceptualization of innovative projects. She has a unique ability to understand market trends, anticipate customer needs and develop concepts that transcend expectations. Its strategic approach makes it possible to create products that not only meet current needs, but also anticipate future developments in the board sports industry.

In summary, Paradoxal Surfboards demonstrates varied and complementary skills, ranging from careful sourcing of materials to the creation of avant-garde designs, and even the development of innovative concepts. His commitment to excellence and innovation guides each of his interventions, with the ultimate goal of pushing the boundaries of the surf industry.



3D printing allows Paradoxal Surfboards to offer surfboards with unique, translucent designs, thanks to a honeycomb structure.

Given that the vocation of Paradoxal Surfboards is to 3D print surfboards from beached algae, we found the obvious idea of drawing inspiration from living things and more particularly from algae to design the structure. internal of our boards.

After watching many lectures on biomimicry, we came across the following photo (photo on the right):


PRDXL (29).jpg
PRDXL (27).jpg

This is a view, at the nanoscale, of a diatom which is an algae found all over the world.

After the nanometric scale, we looked at the microscopic scale (photo on the left) of this same algae and we found that it has, to our great astonishment, the shape of a surfboard.


So we decided to inspire from this observation to model the design of our boards.
