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-1 technology uses epoxy materials to create a strong, lightweight board that feels responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the 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

Construction X1 Epoxy

X-1 Epoxy is a simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core. 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 imported form the USA.
This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is particularly suited to manufacturing SUP’s. X-1 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.

    I have owned dozens of surfboards over the years, but wanted a high volume mid length board as an alternative to my long board and groveler. I’m 180# and 6 feet tall. It floats me fine and catches thigh high waves with ease. I’m consistently cheating 5 without issues. Have yet to hang ten but believe it’s completely doable. Need to try on some better wanted but all in all I’m happy. Got it for $385 new so that helped.

    Rented this board from local shop in Cocoa Beach. As a beginner (still) I Had only ridden foamie longboards, so this was my first experience with a real surfboatd. The 8.4 was recommended for me as I’m 6’1 and 210 lbs. This board has good stability, catches shoulder-high rollers, and is relatively light weight. Performed exactly how Modern (and the local shop) said it would. This will eventually be the first surfboard I will buy. Good first impression.

    Great balance of length and volume. Recommend this to anyone purchasing their first board. You will gain lots of confidence with your take offs, pop up and smooth turns. This is NOT a big wave board but anything up to 1.5 meters it’s awesome and a great board to build your surf skills on.
