Product Description

The Vessel Eco Bean is one of the most versatile boards you will ever surf in small waves.

The all new Eco Bean 2 has been upgraded with the latest S*LAB technologies. Featuring 3K carbon wrap, a bamboo eco deck and carbon infused cloth this little beauty has been designed to hold up whilst you have fun.

The Eco Beans unique shape has been considerably altered to enhance volume distribution throughout the board. This fast little pocket rocket has the same float as a mini mal with half the height making it extremely easy to paddle, glide through fat sections and accelerate rapidly when needed.

And don’t let the shape fool you, these hybrid funboards are as lively as it gets with a deep double concave through the fins this board is lively and loose and performs like a performance shortboard; especially in the smaller subpar conditions.

If the waves are small, you won't want to be riding anything else.

Best suited for Beginners to Experienced users who want unmatched paddle power and performance

  1. Super fun Eco bean

    Posted by Hugo on 16th Nov 2018

    I already have a RPM from you guys, which I'm very happy with, but was looking for something for the summer slop :-(. Great delivery as before. The Eco bean is so much fun. Easy to paddle, cruises into waves and so easy to throw around. I'm 6'1", 90kg and went for the 5'10", 43.4 litres, which is more than enough board. Great value. Looks great. Highly recommended. +++AAA

  2. Great Board Speedy Delivery

    Posted by Chris on 25th Sep 2018

    Posted by Eamon Bull on 25th Jul 2018

  5. Very happy

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jul 2018

    Great board looks awesome with the bamboo finish. Shipping was quick and the crew from the Surf board warehouse were very helpful and informative as where im currently living has a very hard mailing system in place but they made it easy for me. Stoked

  6. Eco Bean 2 = fun

    Posted by Craig on 21st Apr 2018

    Great service by SW, the eco bean 2 is a super fun board and can handle any condition. Nice shape, is a bit wider then my usuals but is a load of fun and can turn on a dime too. Easy to paddle and you can get the speed up on it. Great price and fast delivery, packed well and arrives in mint condition. Thank you SW.

  7. Great board

    Posted by Tim on 15th Feb 2018

    Arrived quick and in perfect condition. Set it up as a quad a o easy to paddle and catch waves. Super fast on the smallest waves heaps of fun. Would be great to have the option of upgrading fins rather than buying new ones and throwing out the ones it comes with

  8. Awesome fun!

    Posted by Rashid on 27th Jan 2018

    Best fun I've ever had surfing on this board. Great customer service from the team at Surfboard Warehouse too - had a few questions before I purchased and they were more than helpful!

  9. Unreal

    Posted by John on 17th Jan 2018

    Took a leap of faith and bought this. First proper surf on it today. Like to think i am well and truly in the intermediate level now days and this thing was perfect for me. Felt like i caught 4 times as many waves as i normally do on my loved 6.8. It gets onto wave you dont even realise you are on and turns on a dime. Just get one. Made much steeper drops than i was expecting too. Where I live cant see me needing anything else 90 percent of the time. P.s service great and packaged super well

  10. Impressive!!

    Posted by Scott on 16th Jan 2018

    My Bean turned up undamaged, earlier than expected and was packed to a high standard.
    Very impressed with the quality for the price.
    The EcoBean II surfs great and paddles like a dream.
    Went with the Bean instead of a longboard, happy with my choice.

  11. Great board, excellent service

    Posted by Damo on 14th Dec 2017

    Ordered the board and it arrived in a week. Packaged up very well!

  12. Fun times

    Posted by Paul on 5th Dec 2017

    The ecobean is a fun little board that works on any wave. No paddlng issues and quick across the wave. And it can lie flat in the car with the tail in the hatchback and nose between the front seats - sweet!

  13. 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!!

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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

  17. Fins - Twin is the best

    Posted by Big Al on 25th May 2017

    Twin or Twin and knubster is by far the best setup. Using Mark Richards extra large Twins and it squirts speed and turns easily. Try it - you wont believe the difference .... like a new board.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

  22. 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,

  23. 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

  24. Beautiful

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Aug 2016

    Have just tried it and it looks and rides great. Even looks good when you are carrying it on the beach...The ladies love it

  25. Quick delivery to Sydney. Cheers

    Posted by Travel on 2nd Jul 2016

    Really quick delivery to Sydney, cheers

  26. Great looks, value, and ride

    Posted by Jeff on 29th Jun 2016

    Why wouldn't you have a fun board in your quiver at this price? Bamboo & carbon looks rad. Paddles well and flies through sections in the small stuff. No need for a mal when you can whip this around!

  27. What a fun ride!

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Jun 2016

    Really enjoy riding this board. Great when it is small but also goes well when it gets over your head. Feels "skatie" to ride but that is part of the fun...Can set a rail on it too though. Won't regret buying one if you want to just have a fun board.

  28. Bring back the buzz ...

    Posted by Bob on 17th May 2016

    Too much fun, well crafted and easy to catch waves.

  29. Sweet Fat Board

    Posted by MC on 27th Apr 2016

    this board paddles really easily and just loves to be pumped along the line. I have surfed it in overhead waves, far beyond it's recommended parameters and it is still a heap of fun. The extra width and squash tail make it hugely flickable in small surf. thanks guys!

  30. Finally a fun board for bigger older surfers.

    Posted by Wazza on 18th Apr 2016

    Its great to finally see someone make these fun boards for bigger older guys (67 and 95kgs). This board paddles easy, catches waves easy, surfs well and is not as long as a boat! Great value and delivery service. Oh what fun and keeps you in the competition in the line up on those small days. As the years increase and some of the core strength disappears this board is part of the solution....great fun to ride and not over sized.

  31. Short board rides like a mini-mal

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Mar 2016
