  • $ 50.00


EPS Foam Surfboard Blanks

[U Series]

Note: All Engineered EPS Blanks are made to order allowing for quick customization. Please allow 3-4 days before picking up or shipping.

The "U SERIES" of Greenlight's Engineered EPS Surfboard Blanks is the “Utility” blank style in which most any style of board can be shaped from including thicker, wider boards for heavier surfers. Plenty of foam for first time shapers to “get the feel of shaping” and still yield the desired surfboard dimensions they are aiming for without overshaping. The U Series is also a great choice for machining.

Greenlight's flexible manufacturing processes allow you to customize this blank to suit your ideas and style without the traditional long wait of a custom blank...
1. SELECT YOUR BLANK LENGTH 
2. SELECT YOUR BLANK THICKNESS
We make it easy for you and reduce the amount of shaping.
No power planer needed if you order your blank around 1/4" thicker than your final shape. You'll quickly lose that 1/4" of foam when scrubbing the blank and rolling your rails into the deck when shaping. Or you can order a blank thicker than the stock dimension to practice shaping and have plenty of foam to play with.

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-Colored-Foam-Surfboard-Stringers-ImageHigh 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-surfboard-stringer-color-imageBasswood 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-surfboard-stringer-color-imageCedar 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-surfboard-stringers-color-imagePaulownia 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-surfboard-stringer-color-imageBalsa 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-surfboard-stringer-color-imageSpanish 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.
