Molded EPS blanks have superior fusion and quality that Marko Foam has prided itself on from the get go. On top of that, these boards are much more durable than any polyurethane board out there, extending the amount of time between board orders and building back up that savings account.

 

Available in two Thicknesses:

6'0 M Regular

6'0 M Thick

 

 

Next time you order a board, make sure it’s core is Marko Foam.

Marko had Verizon come over to our shop for a little field trip to learn about our recycling process. With the Help of sustainable surf, we were able to give them a crash course on what goes on behind the scene of making our Enviro-Foam surfboard blanks.

EFC Surfboard Foam

EXTRUDED FLEX CORE  by Hydroflex & Marko Foam
The new Extruded Flex Core (EFC) by Hydroflex &Marko Foam is the next level in surfboard blanks. The blanks are a closed cell extruded polystyrene foam formulated specifically for surfboard building. To optimize flex for high performance surfing with more memory and a more responsive board. The closed cell structure means absolutely no water will be absorbed by the foam if it comes into contact with water. Because the foam is extruded over other manufacturing processes the foam is very consistent in density getting rid of soft spots in the blank. Extruded Flex Core is have great impact and crush resistance as well to help minimize pressure dings. Use Extruded Flex Core to build you favorite shape for a long lasting and high performance board.

With the ocean being our playground and  surfing being a huge part of our lives we have been doing what we can to become more sustainable. From low waste methods in molding our blanks to recycling EPS foam packaging that so elegantly protected your holiday gifts, Marko along with sustainable surf has been doing their part in making a difference. Lets not piss mother nature off here people… Recycle your foam into shred sticks!

 

If you have been wondering what the advantages are of buying  a brand new recycled board just have a gander at this article from the Huffington post… Enjoy!
