What happens when you take a longboard and make it shorter, and re-distribute the foam into the outline and thickness? Answer, you get the Modern Double Wide. This high volume mid-length surfboard offers great stability and exceptional paddle power for beginner-to-intermediate surfers.
Built using our XB (Epoxy Bamboo) construction which produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck, and has beautiful aesthetic
OUTLINE: Generous nose outline up front with parallel rails, leading into a wide tail. Having maximum surface area gives this surfboard amazing side-to-side stability so it’s perfect for beginner and intermediate riders as they jump to their feet.
CONTOURS: Flat through the nose helps with early entry into softer waves, vee into double rolled concave in the back half of the board means more capable riders can still make flowing directional changes.
ROCKER: Relaxed through the entire length of the board with gentle lift in the nose and tail. This allows the board to paddle exceptionally well, catch waves easily, and maintain forward flow even in the white-water, while still allowing the board to turn in a smooth arc.
FOIL: Boxy rails and a high-volume foil from nose-to-tail means this board will sit high on the water making it perfect for maintaining speed and distance in smaller conditions.
PERFORMANCE: Our X-1 technology uses epoxy materials to create a strong, lightweight board that feels responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions.
CONSTRUCTION: XB - Epoxy Bamboo XB, representing ‘Epoxy Bamboo’ is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin bamboo veneer wrapped around a high-density EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely reliable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck. The durability and strength of XB surfboards make them ideal for surfers who like to travel and newcomers to the sport. XB surfboards feel solid under your feet, offer a smooth free flowing ride and will maintain their appearance for many years.
Available in two key sizes, the Modern Double Wide is perfect for anyone looking for the stability and paddle power of a longboard in a more manageable size board.
