    Surfboard foam density assesses the heaviness of one cubic base of the foam in the surfboard. As foam density raises, a surfboard become harder and weighs more. Foam density counts on the dimensions, kind, use and building of the surfboard.
    Function
    Surfboard foam makes up the middle level of the board. It permits the board to ride high, even with the heaviness of an individual on top. A carver slashes the primary part of foam, called the surfboard bare, into the form of the board he desires to produce.
    Wings
    Thinner surfboards often use higher density foam to reimburse for the size. Some surfboards characteristic wings with foam centers to permit the surfer to sustain command when turning. Higher density foam in the wings makes them heavier, which weighs down the board, but furthermore assists to hold the wings sturdy.
    Types
    Polyurethane, amplified polystyrene and extruded polystyrene make up the most routinely utilised foam cores. Each kind of foam arrives in distinct densities, most often extending between one and two pounds per cubic foot.
