River Surfboard Building Kit
Note: All Engineered EPS Blanks are made to order allowing for optimal customization. Due to a high demand please allow 4-5 days before picking up or shipping.
Make your own pro quality river surfboard with this kit we've assembled for you. Greenlight understands the beating a surfboard takes in a rocky river so in addition to our durable Engineered EPS foam surfboard blanks we've included a special new Innegra woven fiberglass to greatly increase the ding resistance of your riverboard.
Choose between 3 different blank lengths (5'3"F, 5'8'F, or 6'0"F) each sent to you at 3" thick which is the optimal thickness to float you at the top of the wave when the current is trying to push you out. No need to work at shaping the thickness down like conventional surfboard blanks, all you need to do is cut your outline, shape the rails and bottom contours...
While Supplies Last Bonus : Aerialite X Innegra blended fiberglass for the bottom and deck plus an extra layer of 6 oz fiberglass for the deck
96 oz. Resin Research Quik Kick Epoxy
Resin Research Additive F surfacing agent
4 sheets Custom ink jet logo paper
Your choice of tri fin setup (FACTORY fin plugs, FCS FUSION, FCS II, or Futures fin boxes)
Tips on building your River surfboard:
1. Read through our Surfboard Building Guide, Surfboard Design Guide and HELP CENTER before beginning your project. We provide tons of awesome info so you can be confident you'll make a good board the first time.
2. Laminate the Aerialite X Innegra blend fiberglass on bottom and lap it over the rails (fully explained in our Surfboard Building Guide). The X glass is a bit stiffer than normal fiberglass so make sure to check the glass is fully stuck to the nose and tail area with no air bubbles. On the deck, lay the X glass on the foam first and trim it along the midpoint of the rail, then lay the 6 oz fiberglass over that and lap to the bottom as described in our Surfboard Building Guide. This will give you the most ding resistant board the simplest way.
3. A tri set of fin boxes in included in the kit. We recommend trying your new board as a tri and as a twin fin to feel which way us more fun for you!
