3. SELECT THE STRINGER OF YOUR CHOICE
If you're not adding a wood or High Density Foam stringer we recommend using carbon fiber reinforcements with stringerless blanks for flex control and strength.
Contact us for custom stringer glue ups not shown here, as well as altered rockers or blank thicknesses. We can do just about ANYTHING for you!
Surfboard Stringer Options
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 if shipped "the cheap way". Glued up Blanks with HD stringer will be 25" wide.
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!
Paulownia wood is another hardwood that is great for surfboard stringers due to it's light weight and workability. Given its straight grain and light weight, Paulownia is extremely easy to plane and sand. It is typically a pale grayish brown, sometimes with a reddish or purplish hue.
Balsa is the lightest weight surfboard stringer option, and has a high strength to weight ratio. Balsa wood is very easy to work with having a straight grain and a medium to coarse texture. When laminated with resin it 'pops' with a beautiful blond color.
Spanish Cedar is a beautiful wood species with a lot of intricate grain shown when laminated with resin. It is more dense and heavier than other stringer woods and commonly used in old school noserider longboard designs to increase glide and momentum on a wave. A popular choice for elegant longboard shapes.
