Generously proportioned, the Modern Blackfish combines the usability and performance of a contemporary fish shape, with the striking aesthetics of traditional resin tints. The wide point on this surfboard has been shifted forward to assist with paddle efficiency, and to aid in maintaining speed in smaller conditions when the rider shifts their weight forward.
The well-balanced rocker and moderate lift in the nose and tail have been designed to let you get into waves early, accelerate fast off the bottom, then perform fluid turns on the open face. The subtle single-to-double concave bottom further enhances the board by keeping it lively and reactive to the rider.
Surprisingly responsive for its size, the Modern Blackfish has a domed deck, performance rails, and a narrow tail outline, all of which serve to add bite and control in larger conditions when driving off your back foot. The reliable thruster set up has also been configured to suit a wide variety of waves. Traditional gloss polish with cut lap tints. Every board shade is unique with the hand tint resin process.
CONCAVE: Single to double concave compresses and directs water flow adding lift and drive
RAIL: Neutral mid volume rail
WAVE HEIGHT: 1-6ft Waves
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner to Intermediate
TRADITIONAL POLYESTER/PU TECHNOLOGY
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.

- Global Surf Industries - 6'8'' Modern Blackfish Surfboard - Blue don't buyReview by Rockaway John Rockaway John
RatingThis is a nice enough looking board but beware... I own one and it has spider cracks all over the thing. In addition it has sustained multiple serious (repair worthy) dings from what injury I don't know. I'm pretty careful with my boards so it's not like I'm dropping it or cruising it straight into reef or rocks. This is a poorly built board period.(Posted on 3/27/2015) 2015-03-27
