The "F SERIES" is our fish and funshape line of blanks. Designed with a natural modern rocker for all around performance with the volume distributed a bit forward of center for easy paddling. Tail rocker can be left low for fast down the line surfing or can be shaped up for more maneuverability.
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 usingcarbon 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!
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!
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.
If I get a stringerless surfboard blank would I have to use carbon on the rails or will it be strong enough without?
We suggest laminating a strip of carbon fiber along the centerline of the bottom of the board or you can wrap the rails with carbon fiber for more torsional strength. Carbon provides more stiffness and strength.
You can also include VectorNET carbon fiber reinforcement on the deck or bottom (or both) for additional strength.
