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.
These snowboards feature a reverse, banana or rocker camber – however you want to call it. These boards curve upwards towards the nose and tail in a kind of a banana shape. The upturned tip and tail gives a more loose, playful ride and gives extra float in powder. On the downside, it isn’t as fast and doesn’t hold an edge like a cambered board. Jibbers and rail riders will often opt for a rockered board, as they’re more maneuverable and less likely to catch an edge. These boards are also great for beginners – since catching an edge occurs often as someone learns.
Blank snowboards are compatible with standard 4-hole pattern snowboard bindings.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
The table to the left 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 it’s 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.”
