Blank snowboards use sandwich construction, unlike the cheaper cap construction used in the manufacturing of many other snowboards, but for a similar price. Blank combines the finest materials including a 100% poplar wood core, triaxial fiberglass, carbon fiber beams, PE topsheet, rubber foil, ABS sidewalls, extruded base and a Rockwell stainless steel edge. In a retail store, a snowboard made with the same materials would cost around twice the price of a Blank snowboard. That's because you're also paying for retail markup, a graphic you may not even like, and someone else's sponsorship. Blank snowboards were created to give everyone a chance to buy a high-quality snowboard at an affordable price.
This snowboard features "traditional", "regular", or "positive" camber which evolved from ski design and was actually the only available bend until recent years.
The center of a traditional snowboard has a slight arch which causes the tip and tail to touch the ground while the center is raised. Once the rider applies her/his weight to the board the arch flattens and the full edge makes contact the snow. This allows for more powerful and precise turning, more "pop", and greater control at high speeds. Traditional camber boards are preferred for all-mountain and free-ride styles and by experienced riders that enjoy fast speeds.
Blank snowboards are compatible with standard 4-hole pattern snowboard bindings. We use the most common pattern which is a 2x4 (see image below), so most bindings will fit our boards. Binding base plates can also easily be swapped to fit almost any board.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
The table in the specifications section provides a general size recommendation for packed snow conditions. As long you fall within this range, your snowboard will suit you just fine.
However, you may want your board to be on the longer or shorter side of the spectrum depending on your personal preference and riding style. Those that will mainly be riding freestyle (park) may want their snowboard a few centimeters shorter than usual. This helps increase flex and maneuverability. Those planning to ride in heavy powder my want to increase their board size by a few centimeters to help it float better. You can read more about finding the right size board for you here

"I LOVE my new board. It's got just the right amount of flex for me, it's super light and everyone who sees my board thinks the graphic-less white is the coolest thing ever. I ride all mountain, so I've taken my board in the park and through the trees and it has performed exceptionally well. Thank you so much. I'm really happy with my board, and even happier with the $200 price tag. I think you guys have a great idea."

"I'm happy to say that the Blank board I bought from you guys far exceeded my expectations. My home mountain is Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg Indiana, an incredible place with plenty of slopes for me to rip up. I didn't really know what to expect from Blank but now I can proudly say that it's the best board I have ever received. Not only is it well made but its characteristics such as the flex and size are tweaked to perfection. And I'm a graphic designer, I wanted my board to be unique, and I didn't want to pay for a graphic job from someone else when I could do it myself and make it my own. And that's just what I did. I got a quality board at an amazing price and I couldn't be more satisfied."

"I am very happy with my Blank board. I decided to buy one after ruining two boards in a row due to the lack of snow and excess of rocks this season. I figured it would make for a good beater board I could use in the early and late season but I was very surprised by how well it rode. I am an intermediate to advanced rider and there hasn't been any situation in which I felt the board's performance was lacking."
