MODERN BLACKFISH
DESCRIPTION
Find a dealer
Spacer
The PU Modern Blackfish combines usability and performance in a contemporary fish shape. This surfboard is perfect for anyone who’s mastered the fundamentals of surfing, and is looking to take it to the next level.

OUTLINE: Modern fish shape with the wide point shifted forward to assist with paddle efficiency. The tail narrows in the last 24 inches adding control and bite in steeper sections.

CONTOURS: Subtle single-to-double concave bottom feels very reliable and offers quick response in a variety of conditions. The smooth well-balanced rocker is designed to get you into waves early, accelerate fast off the bottom, and then maintain speed as you transition from one turn into the next.

FOIL: The Blackfish has plenty of volume under the chest and through the mid zone creating stability and making this board very easy to paddle and ride. The domed deck leads out to medium performance rails that heighten the sensitivity of the board when turning.

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.

Now fitted with the FCS II system which allows you to insert, change and remove your fins seconds, the Modern Blackfish is a very reliable board that’s versatile enough to use everyday or on your next surfing adventure.

NB: These boards are available in New Zealand NOW, USA March 2016 and Australia Late 2016 (Clear model avail in AU NOW). For the rest of the World please contact your local dealer.

  • 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.

Gina from Florida, USA says:

I have 6'4" model and it works Great on the small choppy Florida waves and absolutely kills the bigger smooth north swells we get in the winter. Very quick and gets into the wave like a jet!! Shoots right off the bottom, or can quick turn at the top and get covered!! I love this board!! Note: I also have a Modern X1, 7', for the all around summer waves we get here. You can not
