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


X1b Epoxy

X-1B Epoxy is an upgraded version of our X1 Epoxy. Still simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core, but we remove a layer of fibreglass from the deck and add a .5mm layer of Bamboo. The EPS core is cut directly from the shapers files, and once custom shaped, is glassed in the traditional hand layup method with multiple layers of woven fiberglass and the bamboo. This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is very well suited to manufacturing surfboards and SUP’s. X-1B Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions. The Bamboo adds a beauty factor to this board.

  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.
