Modern 6'0 Highline Shortboard Surfboard, Clear
With the Modern Highline we examined what novice-to-intermediate surfers need in a surfboard to help them get as much actual surfing experience as possible. To become a better surfer, catching waves and increasing your confidence is the key, so we designed this board to be very buoyant (easy to paddle), stable (easy to get to your feet), and easy to control (smooth turns & go where you want on a wave). Essentially, we built this board to redefine the first steps in surfing so people develop their skills quicker and maximize the enjoyment they get from riding waves.
OUTLINE: The outline is the key to the Highline’s amazing stability. We basically took the middle section of a longboard, then tapered the nose to a semi-point and added a nice curved square tail, and by reducing the overall board length you maintain easier side-to-side turning.
ROCKER: Considered flat, the low, fish-style 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 is required from the rider to get the board up and going.
CONTOURS: Forward 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 a double concave to offset the width, and allow for easier transitions from one rail to the other when performing turns.
FOIL: There’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.
PERFORMANCE: This 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 beaches and point waves.
AESTHETIC: The traditional resin tints, rail laps, and matte finish not only look striking but also guarantee that each board has its own unique appearance.
