2011 Holiday Shipping Calendar!

If you can believe it the holidays are right around the corner. Hope you were good this year so you don't get coal in your stocking! Where did 2011 go????

There is only a couple of weeks to prepare so here is our Holiday Shipping Calendar just to be sure your gifts make it under the tree in time. We don't recommend waiting till the last minute but... the dates are on the calendar for that reason. If you plan to order blanks or board building kits please call to be sure they'll make it on time. In general, blank shipping takes a max of five business days but with the holidays things might get delayed. Better to be safe than sorry.

Hope everyone has the happiest of holiday season.

Thanks for your support!

Black Monday 6 Years Ago Today!!!!

Six years ago today we received the infamous fax from Clark Foam. In case you don't remember, the fax basically said that Clark Foam was closing their doors!!! Luckily, Walker Foam stepped up to fill the immediate void. After about a year or so US Blanks went online and proceeded to become our number one blank supplier.

December 5th 2005 changed the surfboard industry forever. It opened the door for more innovation, EPS/Epoxy boards, Chinese imports, Surftech, and more. Things have settled down quite a bit from those days and the custom surfboard market is more popular than ever. It's also a great time to build your own board BYOB!
