Rainshadow SU1569 or SU1509(if you don't mind a 9ft tip section) Both of these blanks are longer than 12ft but for surf heaving that extra lenght will only help. you can also trim some off the butt to shorten it a tad. I would go 8" max.

Both of the above listed blanks a hard to find anymore because they don't make them. They replaced them with SUR series blanks. I have not seen or thrown the newer style blanks so I can not vouch for them.

Lami has some really nice surf blanks but they almost twice the cost of the rainshadows, and in my opinion not worth the extra cost.

I also know Charkbait (Ben) is working on a nice heaver project that may interest you if you are patient.

The lami GSB150 are nice blanks that will handle pretty much any weight you throw.

I wish I had the $$$$$ but the blank alone is over 300
