Blackbird

Warranty Information

The SR-71 is the fastest manned jet ever built. Blackbird is its nickname. Based on that concept we designed this board to cover ground quickly! Developed for the bigger days chasing down peaks in open waters and battling currents, it is the perfect wave-hawking weapon.

It features added volume, an area-forward outline, lower entry rocker and a light vee in the nose, allowing it to paddle into anything, even in the toughest of surf conditions. With a slight single- to double-concave bottom running through the fins and rounded pintail, the Blackbird delivers smooth transitions and fast, clean lines. A heavy hitter for any arsenal!

  1. Absolute "GO TO" Board for the Heavier Stuff

    Posted by on Apr 15th 2017

    Ordered a straight up 7-0 for a trip to Fiji. I didn't fuss with any dimensions; just went with the standard. The R. team turned the board around before the requested date and I really also appreciated their personal impute. There wasn't enough swell here before I left to give it a test ride, so I ended up paddling out at solid OH+ Namotu Left for the first ride. The board did exactly what it was meant to do. It felt really solid right off the first turn; very predictable, really fast carver. I felt like I had it immediately dialed in. It also proved to be a really good paddler. If you've ever surfed here or Indo with swell you know how important that is; there's a lot of water moving around. Some of the go outs were 2 hours of constant paddling to stay in the line up and then positioning and stroking into steep hollow take-offs. Most of us need enough board to manage that and still be able to duck dive it. What was maybe even more surprising was how well it did in smaller head high surf. The "Blackbird" did it all. I would rate this as one of the finest boards I've ever ordered (and I own a couple custom Lopez's; sorry Gerry). This will be in my travel bag for many trips to come!

  2. Breaks Easy

    I know of two people including me who broke this board in the first couple months. Needs a bit more beef

  3. Big wave Killer

    Posted by on Jul 15th 2016

    I have been riding a 6'6 Blackbird in reef and point surf for the last year. In Fiji on double over head days with the quad Carver FCS setup I could draw the lines that I wanted and pull in at will. Also, I have ridden it in Mexico at a point break at 3x over head and it works really good set as a 3 fin and racing down the line. It will paddle into anything, this is my go to on any big day.

  4. Blackbird flys

    Posted by on May 4th 2016

    I have been riding a 6'6 Blackbird in heavy reef surf for about a year now. I usually use 3D fins Josh Kerr octopus model (quad) if the surf isn't clean I put in a Kelly Back fin. Is makes the board more forgiving. Handles up to treble overhead.
