ABC Big Bird surfboard 6ft 8 - Blue
Don't be fooled by the Big Bird's generous proportions, this is a very versatile and manoeuvrable surfboard, perfect for the improving novice and great fun under the feet of a seasoned and salty surfer. This tried and tested shape has stood the test of time, giving the learner a nice stable platform and a board that catches plenty of waves whilst still capable of real performance for the intermediate rider.
The nice wide template allows the board to be paddled fast and thereby catch plenty of waves early, the bottom has a single concave giving the board lift and speed when up and riding. This wide nose and squash tail surfboard is a bit like a long board with 2 1/2 feet chopped out of the middle so it makes good sense for the smaller rider, male or female who find the sheer bulk of a longboard a handful both in and out of the water.
ABC Surfboards are traditionally made with a lightweight foam core, a central wooden stringer and then fibreglassed. The Big Bird comes with an 8" single fin and a pair of twin-tab (FCS style) side fins for stability. This gives the rider the option to ride as a single fin or with the side fins fitted for added stability.
We run a very simple surfboard trade-in program here at Boardshop, so if you have an old (within reason) or unwanted board that you'd like to trade against a new surfboard why not drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with some good quality photographs and an honest appraisal (including damage and repairs) of your board and we'll get back to you asap.

Gareth Evans (reviewed 31/07/2018)
After not surfing for 5 years I was a bit worried how I was going to be, skill fade and all that but I was back and catching waves with ease in no time.
This board is great for my size as suggested by Matt. I’m 85kg, 5,10 so plenty of volume with the big bird.
I’ve only ever bought second hand boards so this was my first new board and I love it , you can catch pretty much anything on her and the ride is very smooth I absolutely love it.
I will definatley buy another board from these guys, great professional service.

I'm 6ft & 13 stone and I'm using the board with ease.
It's a wide board and I'm having some good rides on the days when the waves are smaller.
Always phone up and speak to the guys at boardshop. Twice I have purchased a board from them and twice I have had solid advice.

Thanks for your help and advice. I think the customer care at Boardshop is absolutely brilliant (even sorting a 5% discount just now took seconds:-)
Will look forward to having my 1st go on it.
