Product Info

Are you ready for something a bit more maneuverable than a longboard, but don't want to give up the ease of high volume wave catching? The Modern Highline PU Surfboard is the ticket to up your surf experience. An effortless paddle, stability, and control make this board highly enjoyable while helping boost your skills as a surfer.

Product Details

Construction

PU ConstructionPolyester 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.

Shape

OutlineThe outline is the key to the Highline’s amazing stability. Modern took the middle section of a longboard, then tapered the nose to a semi-point and added a nice curved square tail, while reducing the overall board length to maintain easier side-to-side turning.

RockerConsidered flat, the low rocker means this board paddles very quickly onto waves, and will maintain its speed once you’re up and riding. In this case flat equals flow, and less effort required from the rider to get the board up and going.

ContoursForward concave helps channel water efficiently across the flatter rocker, particularly when paddling and taking off. The back half of the board has a raised vee with double concave to offset the width, and allow for easier transitions from one rail to the other when performing turns.

FoilThere’s lots of volume along the full length of the foil, but enough taper through the nose to avoid that ‘boat-like’ feel. The rails are full, but still soft which makes them forgiving as you glide across the face and connect your turns together.

Features

PerformanceThis model can be ridden shorter due to the extra width and higher volumes, which is a big advantage for beginner and intermediate surfers developing their turning skills. For better surfers, gear down into cruise mode before riding the Highline. It has a large sweet spot and offers a very fluid ride, especially in smaller, soft running beach and point waves.
