Walden Magic Model POLY Longboard

The Walden Magic Model remains one of the world’s most popular longboards due to its versatility and unique design features.

With an emphasis on performance, the Magic Model features Steve Walden’s patented hull design. A single concave running from the nose through to the midpoint creates lift and stability, which is perfect for controlled nose riding.

Double concave extends towards the tail to maintain speed and sensitivity, while a moderate amount of vee out through the tail makes for smooth rail-to-rail transitions.

The Magic Model has a hard edge running around the perimeter of the board to provide bite on the face, while the smooth, full-length rocker profile and beveled rail maintains the boards forgiveness and maneuverability.

The Walden Magic Model in Poly construction can be surfed by just about anyone, from the novice rider through to the savvy competitor looking for extended nose time. This is a longboard that does everything well in waves ranging from 1 to 10 feet

Technical Info


Polyester – PU Construction

Polyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.

For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.
