Product Description

What happens when you take a longboard and make it shorter, and re-distribute the foam into the outline and thickness? Answer, you get the Modern Double Wide. This high volume mid-length surfboard offers great stability and exceptional paddle power for beginner to intermediate surfers.

OUTLINE: Generous nose outline up front with parallel rails, leading into a wide tail. Having maximum surface area gives this surfboard amazing side-to-side stability so it’s perfect for beginner and intermediate riders as they jump to their feet.

CONTOURS: Flat through the nose helps with early entry into softer waves, vee into double rolled concave in the back half of the board means more capable riders can still make flowing directional changes.

ROCKER: Relaxed through the entire length of the board with gentle lift in the nose and tail. This allows the board to paddle exceptionally well, catch waves easily, and maintain forward flow even in the white-water, while still allowing the board to turn in a smooth arc.

FOIL: Boxy rails and a high-volume foil from nose-to-tail means this board will sit high on the water making it perfect for maintaining speed and distance in smaller conditions.

PERFORMANCE: Our X-2 technology uses epoxy materials with sheets of thin timber veneer wrapped around a high density EPS core creating a light, extremely reliable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck, and feels responsive in all conditions.

Available in two key sizes, the Modern Double Wide is perfect for anyone looking for the stability and paddle power of a longboard in a more manageable size board.

Technical Info


X2 Epoxy

X-2 Epoxy is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin wood veneer wrapped around a Nanoweld EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that's particularly strong on the deck.

The durability and strength of X-2 Epoxy boards make them ideal for SUP's, surfers who like to travel, and heavy beach break conditions where other boards are prone to breaking. X-2 Epoxy boards feel solid under your feet and can take an absolute beating while maintaining their appearance for many years.

  1. 5 out of 5 Late Starter

    Have taken up surfing about 5 months ago at age 56, 89kgs & very dodgy balance. Started on a cheap foamy, then using a borrowed board. This is my first proper board. Fantastic, so much volume I can catch almost every wave I go for. Easy paddling. Nice and wide with round nose and tail makes it very stable, makes it much easier to stand up and ride. Perfect board for learning on. Thanks Scott at Global Surf for the great advice on what board to choose and great customer service.

  2. 5 out of 5 Anti-ageing surfboard. Modern double wide 8'4

    Took a few sessions to get used to. Love the flotation and easier paddling at my age 64. Gives me the chance to pull some manoeuvres and sharper turns than the old mal. Really enjoying it and looking forward to a session on a good long steep wall.

  3. 5 out of 5 MODERN DOUBLE WIDE X2 LONGBOARD Review

    I have been sooo busy with a remodeling project that I have not had an opportunity to get any of my boards wet in 2 months . With that said, the guys were super helpful with ordering, the price is fair, the board arrived quickly and Un-Damaged. The board is beautiful and light for it’s size and seems to be well constructed. I can not tell you how it surfs yet but based on my experience and in light of the fact that I have 10-12 boards in various sizes from ultra small to entire logs I fully expect this board to be super sweet . Thx Russell / Gulf Coast Surfer Dude
