New Biofoam longboard

img_2983bio9.jpgThis is the new biofoam surfboard foam that is much stronger and has a really good flex or ride characteristic. Check out the pic of the 9’0″ x 22.5 x 2.75 performance HP model longboard that we just got in to the Cocoa Beach shop…

About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards

    Considiring a new longboard for this summer. How does the biofoam compare to an epoxy? My current longboard is epoxy and I love it. Is there a big difference in cost over function.

    Hey Andre,
    It kind of depends on what you’re looking for out of the board. The Biofoam boards have been holding up really well and have been able to go with lighter glass schedules because of their increases dent resistance. There are usually a few in the shop so stop by and check them out for yourself.
