How can you call any surfboard foam Superwhite?

The basic ingredients that make up surfboard foam are famous for yellowing.

Surfblanks Superwhite Superstrong

Appearance - Very fine celled, matt white foam.

Strength - Extremely resistant to thumb test at relative density (other makes).

Benefits -

1 - Other than those that are obvious (above) this foam has allowed the production of lighter blanks for normal use. So where as the Blue Superwhite was the shortboard standard, the Green Superstrong becomes the standard.

2 - Blue Superstrong becomes the standard for what was the Red Superwhite fish blanks. Red Superstrong would still be recommended for deep cuts into the Fat Fish blanks.

3 - Blue Superstrong now becomes the longboard standard, replacing Red Superwhite.

4 - Pink Superstrong is 8% lighter than Yellow Superstrong. Pink? Yes Surfblanks has been able to make a lighter blank again.

Since Super Strong has evolved with its amazing compression strength, the door opened for a lighter foam. Super Strong Pink density has been made in all blank sizes. Longboards are so light they can be glassed as heavily as desired. Shortboards have extra float - but still the urethane feel - without the EPS stop/go characteristic. Cell on this foam is tiny so there is little resin take up. Pink foam shapes nicely - finishes beautifully.

Glass job - best with 2 x 4oz deck and 1 x 4oz bottom - always better with warp cloth - better still S cloth - this blank is so light why cheat on cloth?

Epoxy vs UV polyester - epoxy will give the flex and durability some prefer - UV polyester makes a 'one day make' possible with great cure!

So why?

Having made surfboard foam for fourty plus years, Surfblanks has researched and mastered the formula that is today's Superwhite Foam. Surfblanks does not use 'off the shelf' foam component materials.

Surfblanks is the only surfboard blank maker in the world to formulate and cook its raw materials into complex polyalcohols and prepolymers.

Bottom line?

1 - Prolonged whiteness.

2 - Finest cell of any surfboard foam – very low resin take up.

3 - Complex molecular structure for enhanced surfing characteristics (flex with memory).

4 - Amazing silky hand (fluffy white texture).

5 – Unmatched durability at any density.
