I use toilet paper and paper towel tubes for my feeder roaches. Doesn't necessarily give you the same amount of surface area, but it still works pretty well. You could also collect pieces of flat bark and sterilize them before putting them in the enclosure.

paper tubes is out of the question, how about cork board? or plywood? would it suffice?

Cork board should be fine as long as you clean it off first. You'll want to make sure there are spaces between the sheets so the roaches can get in and hide. It'll give you more surface area if you do that too, which means more space for the next generations.
