The Modern Machine

Description: Designed in 1974 with input from former G&S shaper/teamrider, Tony Staples, the Modern Machine was created as a performance board for average California surf. The Modern Machine’s simple concept of “Rounder, Wider, and Thinner”, combined with elements of the Egg, made this a best seller in the mid 70’s. If you are looking for the best all-around board design for everyday surf that’s free-flowing and loose…this is the one!
Best for: All kinds of surf breaks and conditions from waist high to overhead. It will surprise you at how it performs on even larger than average surf.
Features: Flat bottom to slight “Vee” in tail. 70/30 Egg type rails with hard low rails in the tail. Can be ridden as a Single fin, 2+1, Tri fin or Quad.
Skill level: beginner to expert.
