Modern Blackbird 7’0 Blue
The Modern Blackbird offers a free and flowing ride for the savviest of surfer, and it’ll also satisfy the purist who appreciates the aesthetic beauty of traditional cut-lap resin tints.
Classified as fun shapes, these boards feature a very balanced outline and a generous sweet spot through the middle of the board. The rounded nose and full rails add to the usability of this model, which means regardless of your skill level, the Blackbird will paddle well, feel stable under foot, and accelerate with minimal effort.
The Blackbird offers more performance compared to other boards of similar size. The curved outline through the tail, moderate entry and exit rocker, combined with a single-to-double concave, enhances response time and lets you turn in more critical parts of the wave.
The traditional cut-lap resin tints on the Blackbird range not only look striking, but also guarantee that each board has its own unique appearance. The gloss finish further acts to highlight the tints, while at the same time creating a little extra speed through the water.
The smaller sizes in this model are set up as a thruster to really maximize manoeuvrability, while the larger sizes have a 2 + 1 set up for a more controlled feel.
The Modern Blackbird will remain in your quiver for years due to its dependability in all conditions. This is the ideal board for anyone wanting a versatile, slick looking PU fun shape.

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.
