I was interested in building a board. What websites do you get your materials from. What tools would you suggest buying (I have none related to building a board).

Foamez.com has everything you'd need to make stuff if you want to do a different route than Greenlight. Blanks though are more $ to ship than they cost by themselves... I'd say check to see if any local shapers can sell you a blank.
Tools you NEED are:
Sureform (6" & 12")
If you dont want to spend big bucks on an electric planer, Harbor Freight sells a 30 dollar cheap one. You won't be shaping railbands with a planer yet anyways so it gets the job done.
The more stuff you can buy without it being shipped, the cheaper. For instance, Greenroom is half an hour from my house so I can get Marko eps, fiberglass, and epoxy resin. Search around.

ive bought some blanks at a good price from http://pauhanasurfsupply.com
foamez and greenlight will have you covered on the glass and resin.
and if this is your first board go with probox fin systems, but you will need a router.
what do you wanna shape? EPS or traditional PU?
