Three Palms Due Back surfboards are made using our tough Moulded Epoxy (MX) construction. This model uses the Modern Blackbird as its base shape. We have an excess of volume to make those early learning stages easy as it will be faster to paddle allowing you to catch the wave earlier. To become a better surfer you need to catch plenty of waves. This board is styled after a longboard so it will glide well.

Molded Epoxy - MX
Molded Epoxy (MX) construction delivers structural integrity through the high pressure molding of multiple components. The components being; a medium density EPS core, 5 layers of Fiberglass (3 x deck, 2 x bottom) and a special epoxy resin that’s mixed with carbon strands. Encapsulating the whole board, and forming an outer skin that bonds through to the core, this combination of materials is fused together for over 4 hours under constant heat and pressure. The result is a very durable, well weighted board, and the high pressure molding process ensures that each board is identical to our specifications.
