Foam Selection

US Blanks manufactures a water blown, Toluene Diisocyanate based polyester polyurethane blank. We feel this combination provides the best physical properties required by a surfboard, resulting in the strongest blank possible, and yields the best performance qualities. The quality, stability and consistency of a TDI based polyurethane blank has long made it the choice of the majority of board builders.

While there are many formulations available for a TDI based blank, we believe our formulation provides the optimum strength while maintaining ease of shaping and maximum flex. We are continuously fine tuning our formulation to supply the shaper with a blank that exceeds industry standards for these characteristics.

US Blanks has also spent considerable time and resources exploring alternate technologies in surfboard manufacturing. The rapidly progressing developments of epoxies have brought forth a very viable alternative for many board builders. As a result of our extensive research and development we are now offering our new alternative product line of “Superfused Molded EPS Foam Blanks.” These blanks are currently offered in 6 different sizes, 2 different densities as well as several different thicknesses giving unlimited options to the shaper. Recognizing the importance of this technology we wanted to ensure that our customers are provided with the very best EPS foam on the market. Although our SUPERFUSED EPS product line is new, it has already set a new industry standard and we look forward to advancing and developing this technology even further into the future. Our EPS blanks can be found immediately following the Polyurethane Blank Section in this catalog.

@thomasvictorcarroll on his 7'8" @rawsonsurfboard replica. He got spit out of this one and received a 9.6! With the board and the helmet, this image could easily has been taken in 1991. It was actually taken on Saturday by @bryce_lowe_white @surfer_magazine. Thanks for the show Tommy! #BillabongPipeMasters #HeritageSeries @fiberglasshawaii
Producing foam blanks is fairly redundant. All the color and spice happens after the blanks leave our factory. Thankfully we have Instagram to see you're work. Over the past 4 weeks we've been tagged in over 400 photos and we've collected them all to be viewed as a collection on our blog. Thank you for sharing! Tag @usblanks or #usblanks to be included in January's round-up. @toddmessick @rubberbiscuit13 @rozbernjohn @rohde_wrv_evo @rockdancesurf @rhinosurf @realdutchsurfboards @raynorsurf @pinecone_surfboards @orangezebra12 @oakfoils @nxtcsurf @nomadicsurfer @noeboards @netoshapes @naorsurf37 @naksurf_hawaii @mulekesurfboards @moccasurfboards @mitchsnorth @michelepuliti @mcclendonsurfboards @martinshapes @mabo_shichiri @loganlocker @kingofboom @jaysurfboards @greenlightsurfsupply
@rawsonsurfboard shaped these replicas of the 1991 "snap-heard-around-the-world" board for @thomasvictorcarroll. Tommy's riding the 7'8" (on the right) in his #HeritageSeries heat right now at the #BillabongPipeMasters. Everyone wins!
Good morning! #ItsOn
Colored foam! Did you see Dean Edwards' Bonefish board on our blog? It's made exclusively from offcuts of 47 different blanks! Repurposed and upcycled. #BlankCanvas
Just discovered @velzysurfboards Instagram! Definitely worth a follow. His history cannot possibly fit into one post, but at least we can see occasional snapshots. Among his contributions to surfing, he co-designed (with George Downing) our #113DG. #tbt
Nearly need a fish-eye to fit 14' of foam in the frame. @fiberglasshawaii #EPS #BlankCanvas
The Bonefish by Dean Edwards: comprised of over 1,000 different offcuts from 47 different colored blanks, collected over the course of 10 years and glued-up over the past 2 years. The entire board (except for the resin) was built from material that was headed to the landfill. "The fins are plywood and fiberglass scrap. Even the sandpaper was previously used!" Dean's goal was to inspire others to re-purpose waste and attempt to reduce what we use. More photos and full story are on our blog. #RecycleReduceReuse
A few blanks went out this week. Thank you for that. Have a great weekend! Also, how incredible is the Sunset Beach event right now? Go Dusty! #vtcs
