Wave Arcade
> _

Wave Arcade is a San Diego, California based surf project driven by love for the ocean, experimentation in surfing, and art. We make surfboard fins, t-shirts and other clothing, upcycled beer koozies, and wax combs. Maybe some other stuff too, who knows? We also highlight eco-friendly surf equipment and accessories from other like-minded companies and share ways in which you can be a more sustainable surfer.

Wave Arcade Materials & Production Methods

Our products are made from bio-based, sustainable, and upcycled materials with a focus on style & performance. The result is products with low-environmental impacts that not only function well, but look good too.


Most of our products are handcrafted locally in Encinitas, California. Wave Arcade also uses CNC technology to add extra precision where necessary and to make cool things like recycled, 3D-printed wax combs. We’re driven by new surfing experiences and having fun in the water.

Eco-Friendly Surf Brands

Wave Arcade is a small operation. That’s why we also like to highlight some great sustainable surf products from other brands that aim to reduce their environmental impacts. The most effective way to drive change towards more sustainable products across the board is for more people to start buying more of them. Money talks – and when consumers start voting with their wallets, companies across industries tend to take notice. Demand more eco-friendly products and you shall receive them.
