Product Description

The Falcon sets a new benchmark in the funboard category. Stable and buoyant, with a sexier shape and some performance hidden within the design, the Falcon is the perfect board for beginner-to-intermediates wanting a board that gets better as your skills improve.

OUTLINE: The wide point is forward to enhance trim stability from a central stance position, and the streamlined nose gives the outline a contemporary vibe. The back half of the board tapers steadily towards the tail for easier turning in smaller waves, and to heighten control in slightly larger waves.

CONTOURS: The rocker strikes a balance between paddle speed and just enough nose/tail lift for accessing steeper parts of the wave. Forward vee running to vee/double concave between the feet allows for very smooth rail transitions and a responsive feel when standing further back.

FOIL: Designed with plenty of volume through the spine for appropriate buoyancy and stability. The taper at the tips provides better performance sensitivity when riding on the wave face.

PERFORMANCE: The dual-purpose nature of the Falcon offers a stable and cruisy ride for surfers coming off a softboard or bigger longboard. Alternatively, more capable riders will find a surprising amount of speed a response when adopting a more aggressive approach.

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, the Modern Falcon is a reliable, and affordable board that will feature prominently in your quiver. Comes as a thruster with FCS II plugs and Performer Medium fins.

    Piper February 4, 2020

    hey, i have just recently brought a 7 foot modern flacon XB board, and i am mind blown. this is the best board i have ever owned. when i first took it out, the waves weren’t very strong and so i though, ‘this is going to take a while for me to catch one wave!’. But the very first wave i paddled for i caught. leaning in for the turn, it just smoothly did as i said, with no hesitation. the paddling was definitely a bit slower, But i learned to lie further forward on the board so i could paddle faster which helped tremendously. i wish i had gone a bit shorter, but as i didn’t know what i was getting i decided not to risk it, but if i could change i would go for the 6’8 or less. overall i think this board is AMAZING and would definitely recommend it to any one thinking of buying it. its stable, easy and a great board for all surfers! 5 stars for me!
