Product Description

The Modern Blackbird range of surfboards features a striking pallet of vibrant colours and offers a flowing ride for the savviest of surfer.

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 maintains ample surface area through the front of the board 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-to-moderate rocker allows this board to paddle onto waves really well, accelerate from the take off with minimal effort, and make 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, tail, and out towards the rails, providing added stability and making this board to ride regardless of your skill level.

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

FINS: The 7’0 and 7’6 models are set up as a thruster to really maximize maneuverability, while the larger sizes, 8’0 and 9’1 come with a single box fin setup plus two side FCS fins for a more controlled feel.

The Blackbird has a bigger ‘sweet spot’ compared to other funboards on the market. This is a reliable, slick looking PU board that will remain in your quiver for years.

Technical Information

Technology Polyester - PU

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.
