Classified as Fun Boards, these shapes features a very balanced outline and generous sweet spot through the middle of the board. The rounded nose and full rails add to the versatility of this model.

The curvy outline through the tail, moderate nose and tail rocker, combined with a single to double concave bottom enhances the maneuverability of the shape.
X-1 Epoxy is a simple yet effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass cloth and a lightweight EPS core. This construction is lightweight, affordable and is very well suited to manufacturing surfboards. X-1 Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions.
The traditional cut-lap resin tints on the Blackbird not only look striking, but also guarantee that each board has it’s own unique appearance.
The smaller sizes are set up as thrusters while the larger sizes have a 2+1 set-up for a more controlled feel.
X-1B Epoxy is an upgraded version of our X1 Epoxy. Still simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core, but we remove a layer of fibreglass from the deck and add a .5mm layer of Bamboo. The EPS core is cut directly from the shapers files, and once custom shaped, is glassed in the traditional hand layup method with multiple layers of woven fiberglass and the bamboo. This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is very well suited to manufacturing surfboards and SUP’s. X-1B Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions. The Bamboo adds a beauty factor to this board
