The Modern Mid bridges the gap between mid lengths and our high performance Dreamcatcher. Its forward wide point and curvy outline provides the enhanced paddling and glide you get from a mid length while its other features unlock an elevated level of performance that those type of boards typically don't offer.
A slightly wider but thinner nose than the Dreamcatcher helps paddling and keeps swing weight down for agile performance and a lighter feel turns. Tapered down rails with their thinner profile add sensitivity. Combined with rockers designed for a blend of speed and flow, allow the Modern Mid to go on rail and turn easily. A single to double concave bottom and rounded pintail from the DC provides lift as well as better control in a broad wave size range.
One of the most unique performance features we put into the Modern Mid is its fin box configuration. It has normally placed front fin boxes as well as a single fin box for riding the board as a single fin, single fin with side bites, or as a thruster. AND we install two extra boxes in a special placement to ride it as a twin fin or bonzer variant for greater speed with even more responsiveness.
When sized between a shortboard and a classic mid length, the Modern Mid offers a level of flow and performance not typically seen in longer railed boards. In longer lengths and higher volumes, it suits lighter, newer, or older surfers seeking effortless paddling and stability. A fusion of function, performance, and style, you can choose your Modern Mid to perfectly fit your surfing, whether you want to carve up the wave or cruise on down the line.
HOW TO SIZE THIS BOARD
Size it to match your preference, ability, and/or volume needs. The weights in the chart above approximate lengths for a performance feel with some flow built in going about 4" to 8" over your height. In more of a mid length feel with additional glide, stability and easier paddling, go 8” to 12” over your height with 10" over as the sweet spot. Custom dims are always available to match your needs or preferences. Please feel free to use our Board Questionnaire form under the Q&A tab for more info about our boards and sizing.
