The Modern Highline is designed for novice-to-intermediate surfers to help them get as much actual surfing experience as possible. To become a better surfer, catching more waves and increasing your confidence is the key, so the Highline is designed 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, this board re-defines the first steps in surfing so people develop their skills quicker and maximise the enjoyment they get from riding waves.
OUTLINE: The outline is the key to the Highline’s amazing stability. The design features the middle section of a longboard, with a tapered nose coming to a semi-point, and a nice curved square tail. The reduced overall board length means you maintain easier side-to-side turning.
ROCKER: Considered 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.
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 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 beach and point waves.
FINS: Board supplied with FCSII Tri Performer
