They are made locally and ared used by plenty of local shapers with no complaints
I am not sure they are quite up to surfblanks or burford quality

There’s a mob in Hobart who are suppliers for them. It’s only a 5 hour drive there to get some blanks, resin and glass. I might not have any other options :(

They do a nice Marble look / resin swirl blank.

I have only used burford
A recent board had quite a few air bubbles Apparently it’s more common now as manufacturers attempt to make the blanks whiter - little gas pockets are a side effect

I don't even like them super white.
I don't mind the off white.

I had a blank piece of paper once. And then I wrote on it. And then I had a cup of tea. #beanpoling #isthatwhatyoumeant
