Deakin University Graduates Establish JUC Surf, Launches World-First Recycled Carbon Surfboards

July 27 2020

Three Deakin graduates have established the world's first recycled carbon fiber surfboard company, with the help of Deakin University's SPARK Deakin Accelerator 2020 program.

The group's Jan Juc startup company, JUC Surf, is set to hit the Australian market with their revolutionary boards made entirely of carbon fiber material that would otherwise be headed for landfill. "The SPARK Deakin program has given JUC Surf the chance to purchase all the materials that we need to fast-track surfboard production and grow our company," Dr. Stojcevski said.

Aerospace engineers Dr. Filip Stojcevski and Andreas Hendlmeier, along with organic chemist James Randall, combined their advanced knowledge of carbon fiber manufacturing, electrochemistry and material interfaces to overcome the technical hurdles of using recycled carbon fiber to create a robust, affordable, high-performance surfboard.

Dr. Filip Stojcevsk said, "Until now, carbon fiber surfboards have been too rigid and prone to delamination, due to micro-cracks in the carbon fiber interface. We've used advanced electrochemistry to improve the properties of surface-modified hydrophobic carbon fibers and recycled fibers to solve the problem."
