If you have any questions or if you need support just contact our customer service team.
Sure, a completely white board has its attractive purity, but if you want an individual board, then why not choose your original artwork. In theory you can have any design on the board you want. For the simpler designs our airbrusher sprays your desires onto the board.
If its more complicated, simply send us the artwork data and our DTP professional will print the motive on a very thin material, which is then laminated into the board.
We offer several high quality blanks. Teccel is one of the best top-quality European blanks. Homeblown offers high-end “green blanks”, which cause less environmental impact during their production. US Blanks is a company created by former managers and technicians of Clark Foam. Its “Blue” blank corresponds to the legendary “Clark Foam stock density” quality.
Also you can choose IX-PS Foam Blanks. The IX-PS construction is a novel form of expanded polystyrene, which is used as a core material combined with a transparent epoxy resin.
We exclusively use Hexcel glass. The standard is 4 + 4 oz. on top and 4 oz. on the bottom. We can gladly add a 6 oz. layer or use patches for specific areas. As for the resins, there is the choice between Silmar Resin Resin (very hard and rigid) or Reichold Resin (more memory & flex).
On the top coat of the boards we offer sand finish, pro finish (a noble,silky matte finish) or a polished finish. A speciality is to work with tinted resins giving a unique look. This is particularly popular for the Retro shapes.
Apart from the choice of the fin setups (Thruster, Quad, Longboard, Single Fin, Retro Keel Twin or Quad Fins) you have the choice of the fin system as well. We offer the world-wide most popular FCS system, the Future Fins system.
We also recommend the new FCS Fusion Plugs, this system is less susceptible to plug damage and also fits to the regular FCS Fin Range.
Contrary to our stock boards, there is no set price list for our custom boards. The price depends on so many factors, that we calculate each board individually and make you an offer.
The price starts at about 450€ for a shortboard with an very easy airbrush design and Future Fins and ranges up to approx. 2000€ for a Balsawood core Longboard (upon request).
