Made in durable X2 epoxy construction, the Modern Blackbird Surfboard is more responsive and lightweight than ever. The Modern Blackbird X2 offers a flowing ride for the savviest of surfer, and the X2 bamboo construction produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that's particularly strong on the deck. Classified as a fun shape, the outline is full and generous from nose to tail providing maximum stability on small to medium size waves. Designed with plenty of volume in the nose, tail, and out towards the rails, which provides added stability and makes this board simple to ride regardless of your skill level.
The Blackbird X2 has a rounded nose which keeps the area up front and allows the rider to comfortably shift their weight forward. The slight taper through the tail lets you maneuver the board with ease. Low-to-moderate rocker makes this board paddle onto waves really well, accelerate from the take off with minimal effort, and make flowing turns on the face of the wave. A vee-to-double concave bottom makes for easy rail-to-rail transitions, and offers control when driving off the tail. The Blackbird has a bigger ‘sweet spot’ compared to other funboards on the market. This is a super "fun" board that will remain in your quiver for years.

CONSTRUCTION: X2 Epoxy Construction
X-2 Epoxy is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin wood veneer wrapped around a Nanoweld EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that's particularly strong on the deck. The durability and strength of X-2 Epoxy boards make them ideal for SUP's, surfers who like to travel, and heavy beach break conditions where other boards are prone to breaking. X-2 Epoxy boards feel solid under your feet and can take an absolute beating while maintaining their appearance for many years.
