Three Great Foams - Enter here

Three Great Foams

Surfblanks manufactures three different formula foams to suit different needs.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Superwhite/Superstrong is the surfer's long time favourite.

While it has all the cosmetics and physical atributes, it also rides the best. Any surfer will tell you that Superwhite has a lively feel not found in any other foam.

Year after year Superwhite has been upgraded to the now Superstrong. They may just be words but in reality this foam has twice the life of any surfboard foam in the world.

Small makers with a long time loyal following prefer Superwhite/Superstrong so they don't have to stress over durability. Surfers who are in the water everyday know how good this foam is.

Available from Surfblanks Australia, Surfblanks Africa, and Teccell Brazil.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Pacific Foam has been made by Surfblanks for many years.

Pacific Foam is Surfblanks quality but at a price that is at least 20% cheaper than Superwhite. This makes it a great foam for cheaper production boards that may end up under beginners or backpackers. Paciifc has none of the problems of Asian made foams, in fact the average shaper would struggle to see the difference between Pacific and Superwhite. Pacific is glued with slightly different colour glue.

Pacific is available in Green, Blue and Red densities. The Green is preferred for just about every shape as it holds up really well.

Available from Surfblanks Australia and Teccell Brazil.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Surfblanks America has specifically designed for American shapers.

SBUSA looks very similar to Superwhite though it cuts more easily, so it suits slow revving Skil planers.

SBUSA is a premium foam available in very light weights like Pink  and Green.

In a market of very weak, dead surfing foams SBUSA is a breath of fresh air for hardcore surfers.

SBUSA will be available in the USA in the near future.

Surfblanks Legrope Plugs

Surfblanks legrope plugsStylish plugs for short and longboards - very shallow - also available in black.

Wide, curved bottom allows easy legrope connection. Both plugs in use for many years with few problems.

Best/strongest installation point is dead centre on the stringer, the plug cannot roll out in the load line, usually backwards.

Slow gel resin installations are recommended to create the best plastic/resin/cloth/foam bond. Pushing the plug into the cutout with glass cloth pieces to reduce the resin content is a must.
