We get many requests to ship internationally. We would love to be able to offer it direct from the site, but the complexities of shipping large boxes from a small volume shop prevent us from being able to support. The good news is we have found a compromise for those of you who need items shipped internationally.
MyUS is a company here in the US that acts as a freight forwarder. They will provide you with a US address and arrange for shipping to your destination. We have signed up to be an affiliate. If our international customers have any issues with this service please do let us know. While we can not offer direct support involving international shipping via MyUS, we certainly do want to know that you are being taken care of when dealing with a service we recommend.
And please remember, all international shipping service and pricing is handled by MyUS. You will pay FlyingFoam for domestic shipping from IL to FL, and MyUS handles your items the rest of the way.
We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Bad News: We finally had to adjust our EPP sheet pricing. It’s been a few years since we had a price increase, and we were overdue. 1.3# in 24×36 saw the biggest change as pricing was years behind, while 1.9# price increases were very small.
Good News: We will offer a 10% discount on all sheet product until end of year to help with the transition to new prices. We do not offer many general discount codes, so take advantage of this offer as it’s only good until end of year. Use coupon code EPP10 at checkout for your discount. Applies only to EPP sheet in your cart.
Amy and I hope you all have a great Holiday Season!
Dow has discontinued making Surfboard and we just used our last large piece in the shop.
Current closest substitution is 2# EPS. We are looking at other alternatives and will keep you posted.
Hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend! We have been working hard to get the new shop unpacked and caught up on orders. Still much to do, but we are making progress.
Thanks for your patience during our move. We will keep lead times updated on the blue site banner.

We are now in the final stage of our move – Time to pack up for the movers. Any orders placed between now and Sept 1st will likely run about a 14 day lead.
Thanks for your patience and see you in IL! Go Cubs!

We just finished the first phase of our three phase move and are getting caught up on all orders. Should have our production queue worked off by close of business today.
Here’s the rest of the schedule for our move:
- Aug 4-11: Phase 2 Move; Shop Closed
- Aug 12-19: Shop Open in CO
- Aug 20-31 : Phase 3 Move; Shop Closed
- Sept 1st: Shop Open in IL
We will keep the online store open during this entire period, but please expect about a 10 day lead until Aug 19th. After Aug 19th lead times will likely be about 14 days until we get the shop up and running in IL. We expect leads to be back to normal around Sept 7th. We will update the blue site banner as we progress.
Thanks for your patience and support!

Watch the blue site banner for current lead times. We will keep that updated as we progress through the move.
Rocketship Systems and FlyingFoam will be moving this Summer. Specifically, over the next 6 weeks. Our plan is to be move complete and be back up and running full tilt by Sept 1st.
We love Colorado, but we had a great opportunity to move back home to Illinois, so we took it. We will be moving in stages and will keep the shop running here until August 19th. We will then shut down and move to be back up and running by Sept 1st.
Also, some of you may notice that Amy is now signing off on some of your orders. My awesome wife has joined me full time at the shop. FYI, she likes to be addressed as Queen of Foam.
Thanks for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.
Amy and Coby
Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend! We will be closing on Thursday, June 30th and reopening Wednesday, July 6th to celebrate Independence Day with our family.
Some of you will notice that the Kits and Accessory sections are no more. We continue to stay very busy cutting Quick Order Cores and EPP Sheet, and sell very few kits. So we decided to keep FlyingFoam focused on what we do best, which is to CNC some of the best wing cores in the business. The FlyingFoam designs can still be purchased as cores in the Standard Cores section. We do have some fans of our designs so we wanted to make sure you could keep them in the air. You will just need to source your own kit parts going forward. Thanks for your understanding. Good flying!
We have made some awesome changes to the Quick Order Cores thanks to your feedback over the last few weeks.
- Added Single Panel Cores with spans up to 72in
- Simplified the Two Panel selection from 3 to 1 types
- Specify up to two tube holes and exact locations
- Specify a Full Depth slot for spars
- Specify exact location of spar slot
- Add comments right in the order form
You now have most of the capabilities in Quick Order Cores that we had offered with Custom Cores. Of course with more power comes more responsibility. It will now be easier for you to specify cores that will not cut well, or are not at all. So, my next task is to start improving our Knowledge Base and link some pictures and other helpful info to help you get it right the first time. It may take us some time to roll out all that info, so in the meantime please contact us with questions if you get stuck. Enjoy!
