This design has the same rocker and thickness distribution as the Modern 2. We changed the outline for a wing pin tail and carver a double concave bonzer bottom above the fins. The Modern 2.5 was designed to be ridden as a thruster or twin fin. The idea about these modifications was to keep the excellent paddling features and speed of the Modern 2 in small to medium conditions and to add more drive and carving ability. The Modern 2.5 will be your go to board for most summer conditions. We recommend riding this board 2-4 inches shorter than your regular shortboard.
