Walden Magic Model X2 Longboard

Product Description

The Walden Magic Model remains one of the world’s most popular longboards due to its versatility and unique design features. Our super durable X2 construction makes this model the perfect travel companion for surfers needing a board that will perform to high standards and also withstand some tough treatment.

DESIGN: Walden’s patented hull design has become synonymous with performance longboarding, however the design is easily transferred through different board shapes and sizes, and rider skill levels from novice to experienced.

CONTOURS: Single concave from the nose through to the midpoint. Double concave extends towards the fins with moderate vee out through the tail.

ROCKER: The smooth, full-length rocker compliments the bottom contours and has extra flip out the back making it turn super tight off the tail for more experience surfers.

RAILS: The hard edge running around the perimeter of the board provides bite on the face, while the beveled rail maintains the boards forgiveness and maneuverability.

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


X2 Epoxy

X-2 Epoxy is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin wood veneer wrapped around a Nanoweld EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that's particularly strong on the deck.

The durability and strength of X-2 Epoxy boards make them ideal for SUP's, surfers who like to travel, and heavy beach break conditions where other boards are prone to breaking. X-2 Epoxy boards feel solid under your feet and can take an absolute beating while maintaining their appearance for many years.
