Surfboard Stringer Options
COLORED GLUE LINE
A step between stringerless and a stringered blank, a colored glue line provides some aesthetic style and also stiffens stringerless boards a bit. Easy to shape (no wood tools needed!) and a great option when gluing your EPS blanks at home. Just add pigment to the stringer glue!
High Density (HD) Foam Stringers are the latest stringer technology and offer a more dynamic flex and rebound feel to your board. Similar to Kelly Slater's 'Slater Design / Firewire' boards, the HD foam stringer adds a natural, consistent flex pattern to naturally fit the shape of the wave in a turn, and a powerful spring-like "pop" when releasing the turn. And our HD Foam stringers come in a variety of colors!
*HD foam stringer blanks will be 23" wide after you glue up if shipped "the cheap way". Pre-glued up Blanks with HD stringer will be 25" wide and shipped via Freight.
Basswood is the standard wood type that has been used in surfboard construction for decades. It's light and easy to shape with proper wood tools. The grain is straight, with a fine, even texture and is pale white to light brown color.
Cedar wood is a popular choice for a darker colored stringer look. It is pale brown or tan color and shares similar properties to basswood but provides a really cool look under the glass. Plus, there's nothing like the smell of cedar in your shaping area when building your new board!
