Product Description

The Eco Bean delivers unprecedented strength with Vessel’s unique Carbon Infusion Technology. The newly introduced carbon helps disperse flex and control points where it counts. As a result these hybrid funboards paddle and catch waves with ease and perform like a performance shortboard, especially in smaller conditions. Watch 2x World Champion Beau Young put his 5’6 Eco Bean through its paces in the video on the right.

Equipped with a very deep double concave through its fins, the Eco Bean glides through flat sections and accelerates rapidly when needed. The extra volume and medium rails give this board plenty of paddle power, making it the best board you will ever surf in small waves. If the waves are small, you won't want to be riding anything else.

  1. Feed the bean

    Posted by Carel on 4th Oct 2017

    I'm a beginner surfer that decided to buy this board because of its awesome dimensions. First day was a bit rough paddling out in the ocean with 5' - 6' waves and I just could not understand the board. Second day was a bit smaller and cleaner waves and I literally FED the BEAN with some awesome waves and paddling was also pretty easy and learned so much.
    Cant wait to get back in the water and I highly recommend this board!!

  2. Great small wave board

    Posted by Dave Buenaonda on 24th Jul 2017

    I have owned a baked potato for over 2 years with similar dimensions. I was looking for something similar and gave a try to the eco bean. It is as light as the BP, goes as fast but i reckon it turns a bit better and it is muchore forgiving on hollow takeoffs.
    Overall i am very happy and would absolutely recommend it!

  3. Heaps of fun

    Posted by Gray on 18th Jul 2017

    I'm a 6', 80kg intermediate surfer and purchased a 5'8 Ecobean II on a whim. I've purchased a few boards from the surfboard warehouse before so there was no question of quality but I was a bit dubious about the size being too small. First time in the water I was shocked at how easy this thing paddles into even the smallest waves, absolutely astonishing!
    I had to play around with the fin configuration and after trying quads and twins from several brands I finally settled on a set of Inertia Fins thrusters. It's quite a skatey board so the thrusters gave it that much needed hold.

    I sometimes ride it as a twin also but it can get a bit hairy as the swell gets a little bigger. In my opinion thruster is the way to go.

    Seriously fun board! Once you are used to controlling the sharp turns and digging the rail you will have a whale of a time! Worth every penny even at full price.

    Don't hesitate!

  4. Flicking the bean!

    Posted by Sunshine on 12th Jul 2017

    Come one, come all! This board is insane. 5'4 paddles great for my 80kg frame and turns on a dime. Has made me fall in love with surfing all over again. Cheers lads

  5. Dont get a Mal - get a Bean

    Posted by Big Al on 23rd May 2017

    Currently 108kg, 2 mtr tall and ride small boards. Wanted a Mal in short package. Love it. Fast, wide tail for easy foot placement. I will be buying another for holiday house so have one at both places.

  6. The best little ripper you could ever buy for half the price

    Posted by Drew Dub on 15th Apr 2017

    absolutely love this board, as soon as i saw it for the first time out of the box i knew it is going to be fast with the thick rails, loose as with the fat ass it has which i love large round tails, i,m 5'8 and bought a 5'10 and it is perfect for the Indo islands that i,m taking it to and shred it up can,t wait, Highly recommend this Company, postal service, price, products, alround cool and well made. Cheers Heaps

  7. Paddles like a mal, ride like a skateboard

    Posted by Peter on 27th Feb 2017

    Paddles like a mal - rides like a skateboard. I am 59 years young (93kilos) and yes I still ride a pointy board. Been on my own designed 5' 9'' small wave board for a while (standard board is a 6'6'' J S) but have been working out on the Tooheys diet and have bulked up a bit of late, so my small waver don't float so good. First time I have gambled on buying a board unseen but after watching the accompanying video liked the look of the eco bean. Bought a 6' 2'' and had a quad setup first ride , bit slidey, put in a bigger thruster set, waxed up with some Buckshot Surf Wax from buckshotsurfcompany and away she went. Had the time of my life in average 3' to 4'. Easy to paddle on, excellent drive with the bigger fins and still stayed loose off the top and cutting back.
    Can't recommend this board enough for those smaller not so fun surfs to put a smile on your dial.

  8. Fantastic

    Posted by Aaron on 14th Feb 2017

    As a beginner and buying the wrong board to learn on i jumped on the eco bean after being reccomended by a mate and im glad i did. Super easy board to paddle and catch plenty of waves. Not to mention the super quick postage!

  9. Excellent paddler

    Posted by John on 11th Jan 2017

    I got the 6'6" for the volume, and so I could mount a hydrofoil on it. The hydrofoil requires the board to be thick in the tail, which the Eco Bean certainly is. Being so wide and thick it paddles very well and catches waves just as easily as a longboard. Once on the wave it turns easily considering the thickness and width. This board is therefore an excellent (and much shorter) alternative to a longboard. Why do people get longer and longer boards when they could get something like this.
    I'd give it five stars for all aspects,

  10. Most fun short board ever!

    Posted by Mark on 30th Aug 2016

    I have some great shortboards - a fish, a fatburner and a short thruster - this board is now my favourite - for little effort you can catch anything. I am tempted to get bigger fins as it can let go a bit more than expected but it is great fun. Do yourself a favour and get this board - great service & delivered quick in a well boxed and secure pack! Thanks
