Birds Eye, Toucan now welcome the Rare Bird! After years of building the Birds Eye and Toucan models for all types of waves and surfers comes the Rare Bird. It features the rocker and bottom from the Toucan. Single concave from the front foot back to a double concave and slight vee out through the back fin for easy transition. Wide point a little forward in this board allows a really nice rail line that creates drive. Combining that with a medium rail and pulled in thumb tail this board screams versatility. Quin fin setup has proven a huge plus with this model allowing it to perform in small stuff right up to head high barrels.
We basically built this board from Mitch Coleborns favourite Toucan in which he rode in a 54 with a 56 width and thickness. To break that down we suggest dropping 1 - 2 inches from the Toucan or 4-5 inches from your shortboard.
Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the XF technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial Fibreglass Cloth and Epoxy Resin: Biaxial Fibre Glass has about half of its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and about half across the cloth (90 degrees) lending itself as a perfect option for creating a controlled flex pattern. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is a version of polystyrene foam typically found in the core of Firewire surfboards.
4"-5" shorter than your shortboard
