DESCRIPTION

Spacer
The Modern Surfboards Blackbird PU model continues to be the preferred choice for surfers around the world looking for a fun, reliable surfboard that not only looks great, but performs to the highest of standards.

OUTLINE: Classified as a fun shape, the outline is full and generous from nose to tail providing maximum stability on small to medium size waves. The rounded nose keeps the area up front and allows the rider to comfortably shift their weight forward when trimming along a wave. The slight taper through the tail lets you manoeuvre the board with ease.

CONTOURS: 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. Vee-to-double concave bottom offers easy rail-to-rail transitions, while adding speed and response when driving off the tail.

FOIL: Designed with plenty of volume in the nose and tail, and out towards the rails, providing added stability and making this board simple to ride, regardless of your skill level.

FINS: All Blackbirds have FCS II plugs making it easy to insert, change and remove you fins in seconds. The 7'0 and 7'6 models are set up as a thruster to really maximize maneuverability, the larger sizes; 8'0 and 9'1 come with a single box fin setup plus two side plugs for a more controlled feel.

AESTHETIC: Updated with new colours across the range. Traditional resin tints, rail laps, and gloss finish not only look striking but also guarantees that each board has its own unique appearance.

The Blackbird has a bigger ‘sweet spot’ compared to other funboards on the market. This is a reliable, slick looking PU board that will remain in your quiver for years.

  • Polyester (PU)
    • TRADITIONAL POLYESTER OR 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.
