Our Company

The US Blanks team is comprised of former Clark Foam employees and leaders in the surf industry, with over 130 years combined experience in making polyurethane foam surfboard blanks.

We chose to operate in California to provide the best possible service to our customers. Prior to establishing our factory we obtained all the permits required to operate a polyurethane plant in California. We believe we are the only blank manufacturer that is 100% legal to operate in California. Due to the highly profiled nature of using the various chemicals required to manufacture polyurethane foam, it was very important to us that we exercised ALL environmental and safety precautions and requirements to ensure the safety of our employees and neighboring areas, and to solidify the longevity of our company in the marketplace. At US Blanks, we will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure our position at the forefront of environmental and safety standards.

Colored foam! We do solid color blanks, but more commonly we do stringer inserts. Combine various colors, widths, and stringer woods to create endless configurations. Total customization. #BlankCanvas #FillInTheBlank
Regram from @markrichardssurfboards. Mark used our EPS (via @burfordblanks) to shape this 6'0" double wing swallow with 5 fin box set up. She's a beaut! @selsurf #BlankCanvas #FillInTheBlank

Ernie shapes! Not only is he the best & hardest working delivery man in foam business, he's a talented craftsman. Here he used the #64EA with colored foam and 4mm plywood stringer to shape a couple killer shortboards for a local grom. What can't Ernie do?
"There is always learning involved when you work with another good shaper. Each shaper seems to have their own techniques . . . When you watch how another shaper arrives at a certain way of forming the rails . . . it can trigger you to change your technique or give you ideas on how to do something neither of you are doing. It challenges you to be open minded." Tom Parrish on "Tag Team" shaping a board with Kike Panera in Spain. Tom told us about his Tag Team concept, where he and another shaper take 30 minute turns shaping a board, often erasing one another's work, collaborating through the process and creating a shared design. In this case, they built an 8'4" Semi Gun to be surfed around the Basque region. The full story is on our blog. @stylingsurf #TomParrish #85A
