Mold Foam 1" Offcut 5-Pack
This foam has twice the compressive strength of the foam we used to get. It will stand up to more abuse but is still easy to shape your custom mold with.
Use SK8CAD software to visualize your custom foam mold before you shape it!
Mold Foam 1” Offcut 5-Pack includes:
- Five 1” x 23" x 9.5" foam slabs
Use this size foam for a 1” mini drop deck style board, a mini cruiser, fingerboards, or any other custom molds. Splice together multiple pieces to create larger or thicker surfaces.
Instructions are not included in this kit.

Occasionally foam breaks in transit. All is not lost! While it makes it harder to work with, you can put it back together (unless it is crushed beyond hope) Join the broken pieces together using contact cement (don’t use spray adhesive, it will melt the foam).
A simpler fix is just to tape the pieces back together on the bottom side, the side you are not shaping.
Q: Can I hot-wire the foam?
A: Certainly, however that is a one-shot approach. You need to know exactly where and how your wire is going to cut, and you can’t make a mistake
Q: Why use high density foam?
A: It shapes nicely and stands up to multiple uses. Also, if you are shaping radical bends, it will not wear down as easily.
Q: Can I buy a mold already shaped from Roarockit?
A: We do sell Street deck, Pintail and Lil’Rockit molds, however they are cut in the shape of the veneers already and are not suitable for use with the uncut veneers for custom shaping.
