The balsa sticks measure 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 36" each and
can be sawed into strips by the builder to laminate the
surfboard rails.  The blocks can also be used to build
lightweight inside blocking to mount fin boxes or carry
handles.  These sticks are strong and have very nice
color.  The actual weight varies from stick-to-stick but even
the heaviest sticks are lighter than any other wood.
Paulownia is the wood of choice for building wood surfboards.  It is
light, strong, has beautiful grain and resists soaking up water. It is the
most stable wood species we know of.  Our paulownia is grown and
milled in the U.S.A.  We have worked with the mill to get the lowest
price possible.  Each order is shipped the same or next day and
satisfaction is guaranteed.  See the table below for price and sizes.
Sorry, we can only ship wood to the U.S. lower 48.
Paulownia is a beautiful, lightweight, strong wood that resists
water absorption. Its slightly heavier than balsa wood and much
stronger.  The planks range from tight-grained, light-colored
wood as shown to some with grain almost like Oak. There are
few or no knots and boards are kiln dried to a very low moisture
content. The planks are resawed to approximately 5/16" thick by
the builder for surfboard planking. The board above was
planked with paulownia and redwood stringers added for
accent.  The nose and rails were made using our 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x
36" balsa sticks shown above left. The combination is beautiful,
light and strong.
