MODERN BLACKBIRD – XB

Longboard

The Modern Blackbird surfboard offers a stable, flowing ride for both men and women looking for a reliable, everyday fun shape. The Blackbird has a bigger ‘sweet spot’ compared to other funboards on the market which offers great stability for the progressing novice.

  

Built using our XB (Epoxy Bamboo) construction which produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck, and has beautiful aesthetic appeal.

 

OUTLINE: Classified as a fun shape, the outline is full and generous from nose to tail providing maximum stability on small to medium size waves. The rounded nose keeps the area up front and allows the rider to comfortably shift their weight forward. The slight taper through the tail lets you maneuver the board with ease.

 

ROCKER: Low, relaxed rocker makes this board paddle onto waves really well, accelerate from the take off with minimal effort, and allow for flowing turns on the face of the wave.

 

CONTOURS: Vee-to-double concave bottom makes for easy rail-to-rail transitions and offers control when driving off the tail.

 

FOIL: Designed with plenty of volume in the nose and tail, and out towards the rails, which provides added stability and makes this board simple to ride for surfers transitioning from the wastewater to unbroken waves.

 

FINS: Fitted with FCS II plugs makes installing and removing fins quick and convenient. that’s easy to ride and control.
