Our Story

The story of JUC begins like many great adventures, completely unexpectedly. To those of you actually reading this, Hi – I’m Fil the founder of JUC. While completing my PhD in Aerospace Engineering (specialising in carbon fibre), a student I was supervising (let’s call him Gaspard…) wanted more than anything to build a full carbon fibre surfboard. Not knowing the rabbit hole I was about to go down, I said yes. Before I knew it co-founders Andreas and Jimmy and myself, we were learning to shape and glass surfboards after in the shed every night.

It might have been the beers or sleep deprivation from studies, but the three of us had an idea. Could the 3 of us, with 15 years carbon fibre research experience use our skills in aerospace engineering and chemistry to create world class surfboards. But not only that, could we together make a board that was stronger, more responsive, flexible, crack resistance and most importantly:

  1. Use recycled carbon fibre?

  2. Be fully recycled if it ever broke?

So that’s what we did. The rest is now history… The future is being written as you read this…

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. JUC is the world’s first recycled carbon fibre surfboard company.

  2. All JUC surfboards are fully recycled if broken. Zero Landfill surfing.

  3. The worlds only chemically altered carbon fibre for improved crack and delamination resistance.

  4. Designed and created by world leading aerospace engineers.

  5. Stronger and lighter than the competition.

  6. The only all carbon surfboards to flex and twist like a glass surfboard.

Why choose JUC?

JUC isn’t just a surfboard company, it’s an idea. SURFING BE USED TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET!

What JUC offers is an environmentally conscious surfboard, that rides like a racehorse and will last you longer than your average glassy. Still not convinced?

  • Each year 45,000 Tonnes of carbon fibre enters landfill, with a 20% increase to occur by 2025.

  • Australia has no carbon fibre recycling facility.

  • Use of recycled carbon fibre is estimated to reduce the impact of the carbon fibre industry by 78%, reduce raw material consumption by 84% and increase ecosystem quality by 82%.

  • Recycled carbon fibre can have as high as 90% the original tensile strength of carbon fibre.

We’re here to be a part of the solution, to the problem we all face. If you love your coast, your board should too.
