I've been using Core Industries blanks exclusively for almost two years now. Their various blank grades have proven themselves to have the best combination of whiteness, strength to weight ratio and hardness than any others. However Core's biggest attributes are their performance underfoot and their consistency in the product. Athlete and customer feedback has never been better with regard to the way the blanks surf and also hold up to pressure dents. And I'm now getting incredible consistency in blank flex, pop and hardness throughout the year's seasons due to Core's manufacturing methods and quality control. The owners make amazing blanks because they want to surf amazing blanks, they take shaper feedback seriously and are always trying to take things to the next level.
Thanks guys, keep up the great work!

I started using Core Blanks over 3 years ago.. I was first impressed
by how eager to boys from core were to make quality blanks that
perform in the water and to provide a good service.
To be honest they had a few teething problems with the foam in the
beginning but they soon worked on it and ironed things out.
A couple of months into using core I made some boards for my team
riders out of Core foam...with two of the riders I made the identical
boards, one in an other companies team weight foam and one out of
Core, and they both came back to me saying the board with the Red
stringer felt way better, they did not know it was two different types/
brand of foam..I did this test again and came up with the same
results. From then on I have only used Core blanks for all my

I've been working with core blanks for about 4 years and I'm happy with the
progress of the product in that time. the blanks have improved a lot since I
first started using them and this shows that the boys at core have worked
hard to get their product to a consistently high standard. I've put my team
riders and myself on these blanks and the team guys especially Bede have
been stoked with the performance aspect of them. Bede won Brazil and Pipe on
a board made from a core blank he was also riding cores in the semis at
trestles and Puerto Rico. Bede mentioned that in smaller surf they have
superior lift and flex to other blanks he has tried. I will continue using
Cores for my team guys in the future.
