Experience the stoke of building your own balsa wood surfboard with most of the hard work done for you. This blank is solid balsa wood. We pre-shape the blank for you depending on what you are after – any size and stringer combination is possible (Fill out our custom order form – download here). The plan shape, rocker, dome on the deck and bottom will then be set when the blank arrives on your doorstep. You need to finish the rails off with a planer & sandpaper. Then cut and sand tail & nose to your liking. Do an overall finish, sand the board once more and it’s ready for glassing. The time you’ll need to finish the board depends on experience (approximately 4-8 hours). Check out the video below to see Mark finishing a pre-shaped shortboard blank.
This blank is best for shaping a replica board of the 50′s and 60′s. You can re-create a part of surfing history and explore what it was like to ride a solid balsa board.
This blank is suitable for you if you are after a new experience, not for high performance surfing.
