Half longboard, half cruiser; the Modern Love Child offers limitless options in the water. This surfboard paddles exceptionally well, has plenty of turning ability off the tail, and will adapt as the conditions and your approach changes.
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 appeal.
OUTLINE: The longboard outline up front creates a huge stable zone under the front foot and chest, which is great for catching waves early and riding forward towards the nose. The tapered pintail keeps the board manoeuvrable and adds control in bigger, steeper waves.
ROCKER: The low rocker is designed to glide effortlessly into waves and maintain down-the-line speed and acceleration. Subtle lift in the tail rocker promotes smooth gliding turns on the face.
CONTOURS: Concave in the nose creates lift when standing forward. Pronounced vee-double concave starts under the front foot and runs all the way out the back maintaining ample manoeuvrability on an otherwise wide, higher volume board.
FIN: Three different fin configurations offer 3 types of performance. The single and 2 + 1 set-ups deliver a free-flowing ride while promoting longer lines. The quad offers a faster ride with tighter turning capacity.
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.
