can this foam be shaped with the rasps and such from the shaping tools and planer bought from greenlight?
Absolutely, we designed the shaping tools with a focus on efficiently shaping all types of EPS foam. Turns out they work really well with PU foam surfboard blanks too...
The surfboard shaping planer does a nice clean job on our Engineered EPS foam blanks. The blades last 50+ boards before we recommend sharpening them.
Do these blanks come glued together, or will I have to glue each side to the stringer when it gets to my house?
Longboard blanks come glued up already and are shipped on a freight truck. Blanks 6'6" and under can be shipped split in half with UPS Ground for much less shipping costs.
We can fit up to 5 blanks in a box for a freight shipment for no additional shipping cost. Contact us for a shipping quote.
hey. looking to shape a noserider - 9’9” with the most environmentally responsible materials. can you make some recommendations? i previously shaped an eps / epoxy board from a kit i bought from you, but i feel like the board has a hollow feel compared to the pu / epoxy boards i have. perhaps too light on the glass schedule? let me know your thoughts.
You want to go with a 9'9G longboard blank and glass with 2 layers 6 oz fiberglass on the deck and either 1 or 2 layers 6 oz on the bottom depending on the total weight you're looking for. If you're going for a "log" feel then go with 2 layer 6 oz on the bottom. We also have 7.5 oz Volan fiberglass if you want that old school coke bottle tint look in addition to the extra weight.
Entrpoy Super Sap is bio based epoxy if you're looking for the most environmentally responsible board construction.
