Grow, bloom, die: The curious case of Agave

When an agave flowers, it is not a happy event, unless you’ve been waiting forever to collect its offspring. Agaves are monocarpic, meaning they die after flowering. It’s a natural grand finale.

After dying, Miguel Aragão, makes them into a surfboard. In creating beautifully handcrafted and sustainable surfboards made from agave.

It´s important to find alternative means of making our surfboards in order to offset our carbon footprint and ensure the continuity of a healthy planet.

AGAVE PLANT - The genus Agave is primarily known for its succulent and xerophytic species that typically form large rosettes of strong, fleshy leaves. Plants in this genus may be considered perennial, because they require several to many years to mature and flower. However, most Agave species are more accurately described as monocarpic rosettes or multiannuals, since each individual rosette flowers only once and then dies; a small number of Agave species are polycarpic.
