Product Description

With loads of surface area up front, and a more tapered outline in the tail, the Modern Love Child is a versatile cruiser that is sure to double your wave count. This board paddles exceptionally well, has plenty of turning ability off the tail, and will adapt as the conditions, and your approach changes.

OUTLINE: The longboard outline up front creates a huge stable zone under the front foot and chest, which is great for catching waves early and riding forward towards the nose. The tapered area pintail keeps the board manoeuvrable and adds control in bigger, steeper waves.

ROCKER: The low rocker is designed to glide effortlessly into waves and maintain down-the-line speed and acceleration. The subtle lift in the tail rocker promotes smooth gliding turns on the face.

CONTOURS: Pronounced vee-double concave starts under the front foot and runs all the way out the back maintaining ample manoeuvrability on an otherwise wide, higher volume board.

FIN: Three different fin configurations offer 3 types of performance. The single and 2 + 1 set-ups deliver a free-flowing ride while promoting longer lines. The quad offers a faster ride with tighter turning capacity.

AESTHETIC: The traditional resin tints, rail laps, and gloss finish not only look striking but also guarantees that each board has its own unique appearance.

Technical Info

Technology

Polyester – PU Construction

Polyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.

For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.

  1. 5 out of 5 Love this board!!!

    The guys in the board shop raved about the love child , after riding it for the first time I completely see why. I had the most fun surf session ever! The volume and width up top gives so much extra paddle power that you glide into waves, but the narrow tail instantly turns the board into a manouverable and fun board. There are a lot of boards out there that claim this combo but this one really maximises on both qualities. So stoked to get out there for second rip up!

    Great board for weaker summer slop in dirty jerzee. Quad set up is sweet.

  4. 5 out of 5 7'6" Love Child

    I LOVE this board! It does everything it says. The set up makes it easy to catch waves and the narrow tail make it fast and very easy to turn. I have been surfing about 6 months and this was the perfect transition for me. The rocker makes the board almost pearl proof. The only knock is that I have put a few dents in the top from pop ups.

  5. 5 out of 5 6'8" Lovechild

    purchased a 6’8″ Lovechild as a Xmas gift to myself. love the board, easy to paddle & get into waves, very fast, easy to turn. what I like most about this board is the fin set up-single, thruster, quad-all are options. I’ve been riding it as a quad. like it so much that I also purchased a 7’6″ as my long board for small days. Thanks to Tony Butler for helping me with my puchases-seamless service!

  6. 5 out of 5 Feeling the Love.

    Just had my second surf on this board and it’s official – I LOVE the Love Child! From the paddling to the overall
    responsiveness; I couldn’t have hoped for better. I bought the 6 footer and rode it with a 2+1 fin setup in 1-3 foot
    shories in Newcastle (Australia) and it performed brilliantly, plenty of speed on the open face and excellent rail to
    rail transitions. The perfect allrounder. Can’t wait to try it with the quad setup and in bigger waves. Great work guys!
