Why We Like The Falcon PU Surfboard
Setting a new benchmark in the funboard category, Modern made the Falcon PU Surfboard to offer a stable and buoyant option that helps us beginner-to-intermediate surfers progress quickly. The wide point is plenty stable so we can pop up with confidence, while the back half of the board tapers steadily towards the tail for easier turning in smaller waves and heightened control in slightly larger waves. Not just entry-level, the Falcon offers a stable and cruisy ride for surfers coming off a softboard or bigger longboard, while more capable riders will find a surprising amount of speed and response when getting more aggressive.
- Innovative funboard for quick progression with unlocked potential

Modern Falcon 8'
- I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Size Bought:
- 5' 7"
Sadly it arrived with the nose dinged cause the cardboard housings inside the box that are supposed to protect nose and tail are assembled with big copper staples and the board hit these during normal transportation and handling. The staples are actually placed at the bottom of the cardboard housings but somebody flipped one over (upside down) along the way, probably during customs inspection, so the nose due to its concave shape, matched the exact position of the staples and got screwed up. This is definitely a package design flaw. There is no warning or indications on how to carefully place the housings back into the box that can alert any one who inspects it's contents. For shippers or customs would be really difficult to figure out that the packaging it self can damage the product if they don't re-pack everything back carefully (original factory packaging). This is not the responsibility of Back Country but Global Surf Industries Packaging designers'. UPDATE! I also noticed some kind of small dings along the right rail, near the tail that have already been filled with resin (look a bit yellowish and with some bubbling), probably a repair done at the factory. These boards are made in Chyna, which I'm not a fan of for many reasons, just so you know. I reported this incident to Backcountry CS and they kindly offered me to return the board or to keep it and receive some cashback via store credit just to cheer things up. I can't return the board cuz it has already be shipped abroad. So I accepted the cash, a big Shout out to my boys/girls...or any 'alphabet people' (LGBTQ+-&$#*...or any other weird character) from Backcountry for stepping up and backing up their products and services. I will certainly will do business with you soon, since my wife is already looking for a new board for her. I contacted Global Surf Industries to let them know that there is a potential risk of the staples used to assemble their packaging and nose/tail protecting housings, causing damage or dinging the boards, specially if someone flips upside down any of the two cardboard housings contained inside the shipping box, when reassembling everything after inspection and standing or resting it nose-down, perpendicular to the floor. They said "It's not convenient for us to do such changes and bear the costs of redesigning the packaging" : (

I?ve been riding this board for a while and with a 7 ft version of this board you can get glowing longboard rides along with turns when you want

Damaged on arrival.
- I returned this product before using it
I was stoked to try out this board but it came damaged on arrival. I ordered the 8 ft plain white version. Got delivered with a FAT hole in the lower half. Unacceptable to ride. Also was informed that someone would call me when it was being delivered in order to ensure I or someone else would be there to both receive and inspect it for holes/dents/any damage but they didn?t call me. No one informed me that it was delivered. Came home from work to unpackage it with a hole. It didn?t resemble a dent from getting bounced around but a hole as if something sharp had jabbed it. This is unacceptable to ride in the water. I?m sure this board would?ve been great but I am extremely disappointed and frustrated with backcountry. I understand things get bounced around in transport especially something as awkward and long as a surfboard but if it?s quality checked and packaged the right way it shouldn?t have these issues at all. Be cautious when ordering this board, not because of the quality of the board but the quality of this companies packaging.
