The Magic Dually is an integration of the best characteristics of a traditional longboard and a high performance longboard.
Steve Walden likes performance boards and therefore that is what he has been building for over 50 years. Steve explains the idea behind the Dually... "The Magic Model which is the platform for almost every board I shape/design is the ultimate board for my kind of surfing, I like the maneuverability, speed and power. That being said there are days that I still like a traditional board for some old school trimming. The idea behind my Dually design is to combine the best of a traditional board with the best of my high performance Magic Model".
The challenge with the Dually was to take the best of each style of board without creating a watered down hybrid. It took some R & D to find the right percentage of traditional board to performance board. What the finished design has is a traditional front end and a performance tail. How and where the two style of boards meet...well, as they say that is where Magic happens.
We joke that this is a buy one get one free board, it's two boards in one, the nose is all about trimming and old school surfing and the tail is all about maneuverability and speed. The Dually isn't a as much an evolution of a design but a new category of design. The Dually started as a single model for us, but we have been so stoked by the concept of dueling parts we see the Dually becoming a category more than a single model.
