|Surfboard-grade balsa. We have both 7'6" and 8'6" balsa beams that are 3 1/4" thick and anywhere from 3" to 6"
wide. Most will average 10 board feet or more.
Price for balsa up to 8'6" is $7.99 per board foot
10' balsa beams are $9.99 per board foot
Shipping balsa over 8' long is tricky. Call and we'll work out the best way.
If you purchase balsa at the same time you purchase a kit we can pack them together and save you on shipping.

|WHY USE PAULOWNIA?
If you aren't familiar with paulownia its a very sustainable, fast growing, soft
wood that's a little heavier than balsa but much stronger. Its the wood of
choice for Alaia's because once its shaped and oiled it doesn't soak up
salt water. We have some of the lightest paulownia around. In fact we've
seen balsa that is heavier than many of these planks. Using paulownia on
the deck and balsa on the bottom it should be easy to build a wood
surfboard that is as light as a foam board.
