What are Surfboard Blanks Made of?
Surfboard blanks are made out of a few different materials – most some sort of foam, but you’ve got natural, more eco-friendly options too.
Types of surfboard blanks:
- Polyurethane foam (PU) – either virgin, partially recycled, or algae-derived
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) – either virgin or partially recycled
- Extruded Polystyrene (XTR/XPS)
- Wood – Balsa, Redwood, Cedar, other species
How Much are Surfboard Blanks?
A surfboard blank will cost anywhere from $50 to $250 depending on the size, shape, and blank materials.
If you’re only looking to buy a small number of blanks, the real big price driver is shipping. You’ll probably be looking at around $180 for shipping – more of less depending on the distance you need it shipped and the size of your blank.
