2016 Original Magic Model

The Magic Model is the original modern longboard, it has been our best selling surfboard since the early 80‘s. The number one question we get asked about the Magic Model is what makes it work so well. We try to simplify the design into three parts that every Magic Model has:  1.The Magic Hull 2.Magic Rocker 3.Magic Rails

The Magic Hull is unique, the front 1/2 of the hull is concave, this single concave transitions into a double concave in the rear 1/3 and ends towards the tail, that has a moderate “V”. The concave nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double concaved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stabile, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions. The Magic rails are hard, they tend to be harder than most other longboards, the unique bottom curve & bevels keep the rails from catching like most other hard rail boards. The Magic Model has a full rocker resulting in more tail maneuverability and more control when nose-riding. The combination of these design elements that Steve has perfected over the years has resulted in one of the best selling longboards of all time. The Magic Model is an all around high performance surfboard that rides just as great in small surf as it does in big surf. The Magic Model is the right choice for every level of surfer too. The Magic Model is so unique it even has a patented hull design. We recommend this board for: Everyone in most conditions. 


   

 

 

 

2016 Mini Magic

The Mini Magic is a scaled down version of our famous Magic Model. The range for the Mini Magic is 6’8 - 7’11. This is a good choice for a smaller surfer, people who are transitioning from a shortboard to a longboard or vice versa - longboarders wanting to go shorter while still maintaining some volume and float.
Like the bigger Magic Model the hull has a unique design, the front 1/2 of the hull is concave, this single concave transitions into a double concave in the rear 1/3 and ends towards the tail that has a moderate “V”. The rails are hard. The concave nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double concaved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stabile, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions. This board performs as well as slow surf as it does on speedy beach breaks. The Mini Magic maneuvers well out of turns while maintaining a forgiving nature, excellent nose rider too.  We recommend this board for: Smaller surfers, people transitioning from longboards or shortboards.

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Compact Disk

The Compact Disk  or "CD" is the smallest board in the Magic Model series,  5’6 - 6’6 with the same design elements as the larger Magic Model but reduced into a shortboard with a full longboard outline. You can even nose ride the CD. Fun for experienced riders and a great choice for the intermediate surfer wanting a shorter board. Great in good surf and better than standard shortboards in sloppy surf.
Like the bigger Magic Model and Mini Magic the hull has a unique design, the front 1/2 of the hull is concave, this single concave transitions into a double concave in the rear 1/3 and ends towards the tail that has a moderate “V”. The rails are hard. The concave nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double concaved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stabile, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions. This board performs as well as slow surf as it does on speedy beach breaks. The CD maneuvers well out of turns while maintaining a forgiving nature, excellent nose rider too. We recommend the CD for: More experienced surfers, intermediate surfers wanting to go shorter. Also a great longboard for kids. 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Mucho Magic

The New Mucho Magic was designed to be a perfect fit, sized between the Original Magic Model and the Mega Magic. The Mucho has more volume than the Original Magic but less volume than the Mega Magic. Think of it as small, medium and large volume, the Mucho is our medium volume board.
The Mucho has the same volume as a standard Magic Model that is about 6" longer. The Mucho is for a surfer who desires a little extra volume and flotation but doesn't need of the extreme volume that the Mega provides. The Mucho is available in poly or EPS, depending on the size.
The Mucho has our famous Magic Model patented design. The Magic hull is unique, the front 1/2 of the hull is concave, this single concave transitions into a double concave in the rear 1/3 and ends towards the tail, that has a moderate “V”. The concave nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double concaved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stabile, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions. The Magic rails are hard, they tend to be harder than most other longboards, the unique bottom curve & bevels keep the rails from catching like most other hard rail boards.

The Mucho Magic is an all around high performance surfboard, that rides just as great in small surf as it does in big surf. The Magic Model is the right choice for every level of surfer too, especially someone looking for a little more volume.  

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Mega Magic

The Mega Magic has become one of best selling Walden designs ever. This board is so popular because it lets you go down to a shorter board regardless of your size or skill. The Mega Magic is our Magic Model with the most condensed volume. We take volume from the length and redistribute it to the width and thickness while maintaining our famous Magic Model performance. The Mega Magic has the famous Magic Model elements: our patented concave bottom, hard rails & lots of rocker. The Mega is about 1/2-1” thicker and 1-2” wider than a standard Magic Model. The Mega Magic will float like a board that is 12-18" longer. For the bigger guy that normally rides a 10'0, with the Mega he can ride a 9'0 without giving up float or stability. Our custom Mega Magic’s are only available in EPS foam, they’re super light for the volume of foam so you don’t give up any performance. We recommend this board for: The surfer who wants to go shorter without going to a shortboard or giving up float.

2016 Mega Fish

The Mega Fish, sized between 5'8 and 7'6 it is a floaty, big guy fish. It is recommended for the intermediate through advanced surfer. Like the rest of our Mega range which takes volume and redistributes it into the width and thickness, our Mega Fish is much wider and thicker than a traditional fish but maintains our famous Magic performance. The fin set up is a quad with a trailer.  Designed for the bigger guy who is looking for a bigger Fish, the Mega Fish works best in average, everyday surf.  The Mega Fish has some of our famous Magic Model elements: our patented concave bottom and hard rails.

2016 Enigma

Take a shortboard outline and pump up the volume without losing any of our signature “Magic” feel or performance and you have the Enigma. The Enigma is short, fat and fast with a step deck and the original wing tail first developed by Steve Walden in 1972. The step deck allows for a thinner rail for responsiveness while maintaining volume for floatation. The wing fin creates a shorter rail line and a narrower pivot point in the tail for a more maneuverable ride. Designed for the better surfer in smaller surf where increased looseness wont compromise control. The fuller nose combined with our patented “Magic” bottom ( a deep single-to-double concave with beveled edges and sharp rails), is perfect for glide-and-trim styling while remaining aggressive when driven hard off of the back foot. The Enigma also features a 4+1 fin box for ultimate fin selection. This board is recommended for: A better surfer who wants to go shorter, in small to medium surf.  

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Retro Wing Swallow Tail

The Walden Retro Wing Swallow Tail ( RWST) was named Outside Magazine's summer 2010 "gear of the year". We couldn't have described the board better so here is Outside magazine's review: Equipped with five fin boxes, the Walden works as a thruster or quad. Our 6'4" test model carved up small waves best as a quad. And when the surf jumped up, we popped out the back two fins and added one in the center for a thruster setup that was fast but steady on steep drops and bottom turns. The board is versatile enough for any wave. The board's outline evolved from shaper Steve Walden's 1970s Dyno Eagle twin-fin fish. At 2.75 inches thick, the Walden has plenty of flotation to help you paddle into big waves early and milk waist-high junk you could normally ride only with a longboard. And with its double-concave hull, it even blew through hollow sections of ten-foot surf in the Maldives.
This board also proved extremely maneuverable, especially when ridden as a quad. Whether we were carving up small waves, cranking a big turn off the top, or just trying to switch directions to stay with a mushy wave, the Walden responded quickly and correctly, just like a good board should."
We recommend the RWST for: an intermediate to advanced surfer in all conditions. Size range is 5'6 - 7'6. Available in poly only. Fin set up: Quad or 5 fin. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Strato Flex

The Walden "Strato-Flex" is a Magic Model with a five stringer system designed by Steve Walden to control flex. The middle stringer runs the length of the board, the remaining four stringers are graduated and run about 2/3-1/2 way down the board. This board has outrageous flex, the idea of the Strato-flex is to control flex where you want it most, in the nose and tail, maintaining a flatter middle. The Strato-Flex is made of lightweight  EPS foam for strength. The Strato-Flex is designed for the better who surfs medium to large surf. 

About EPS: Expanded Polystyrene is a type of foam also known as styrofoam or bead foam. Polystyrene beads are expanded to their desired density by using steam and a variable quantity of beads in a mold. Hand shaped EPS/Epoxy boards are different from molded Epoxy boards which is what we traditionally mean when we say Epoxy. Since the core is very light, the finished product is lighter than a polyurethane construction and more rigid. All of our Startto-Flex boards are made of EPS. 


   

 

 

 

2016 TNT

The TNT is an integration of the best characteristics of a traditional longboard and a high performance longboard, TNT stands for turning & trimming and that is what this board does best. Steve Walden likes performance boards and therefore that is what he has been building for over 50 years. Steve explains the idea behind the TNT... "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 TNT design is to combine the best of a traditional board with the best of my high performance Magic Model". The challenge with the TNT 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. The TNT is two boards in one, the nose is all about trimming and old school surfing and the tail is all about maneuverability and speed. Available in 9'0, 9'6 and 10'0. This board is recommended for: For the surfer who likes a traditional feel with out losing the turning of a performance and agility of a board. Great for everything but big surf.

 

 

  

 

 

   

 

 

 

2016 Walden Wahine

Starting in 2002, Walden Surfboards was the first company to design an entire line of surfboards just for women, we didn't simply add a token pink surfboard to our existing men's line but rather we created an entire range of surfboards designed and shaped specifically for women. 

The Walden Wahine surfboard is as functional as it is beautiful, the collection is based on the Original Magic Model, a high performance longboard meant for all wave types and all levels of surfers. We modified the Walden Wahine's slightly, the dimensions are thinned out and narrowed to better fit a women's frame. The Magic Model is the original modern longboard, it has been our best selling surfboard since the early 80‘s. The number one question we get asked about the Magic Model is what makes it work so well. We try to simplify the design into three parts that every Magic Model has:  1.The Magic hull 2.Magic rocker 3.Magic rails

The Magic hull is unique, the front 1/2 of the hull is concave, this single concave transitions into a double concave in the rear 1/3 and ends towards the tail, that has a moderate “V”. The concave nose adds lift and stability, perfect for nose riding. The double concaved hull and hard rails make the board fast, stabile, responsive and maneuverable in all conditions. The Magic rails are hard, they tend to be harder than most other longboards, the unique bottom curve & bevels keep the rails from catching like most other hard rail boards. The Magic Model has a full rocker resulting in more tail maneuverability and more control when nose-riding. The combination of these design elements that Steve has perfected over the years has resulted in one of the best selling longboards of all time. The Magic Model is an all around high performance surfboard that rides just as great in small surf as it does in big surf. The Magic Model is the right choice for every level of surfer too. The Magic Model is so unique it even has a patented hull design.
We recommend this board for: Everyone. This is the board for most people in most conditions. Available in poly only. Fin set up is 2+1. Choice of inlay and colors, and full or partial inlay.

2016 Mini Magic - Stock

Our stock Mega Magics come in two sizes and one color way - clear with black pin lines. Our stock Mini Mega's are made and distributed by GSI. 

The Mini Mega Magic is a smaller version of the best selling Mega Magic. Available in 6'10 or 7'6 it is a sporty version of our Mega Magic. Designed for the bigger guy who is looking for a bigger shortboard ( rather than the Mega Magic which is a shorter longboard). The length-to-volume ratio is the key element that delivers significant performance advantages over other surfboards in its class. The Mini Mega has more of a shortboard outline with a slightly pulled in nose but with a lot of extra volume for maximum floatation yet it is still highly maneuverable. The outline is geared for performance surfing; the nose and tail have been pulled in to allow the board to fit into more critical parts of the wave and turn in a tighter radius. The unique step rail on the deck combined with a hard edge and a beveled vee on the bottom strike a balance between bite and forgiveness when the board is set on rail.
Like all Magic Models, the Mini Mega Magic features a unique patented hull design. Single concave runs from the nose through to the midpoint to enhance speed while adding control. Double concave extends towards the tail providing quicker response time and sensitivity through turns. Moderate vee out through the tail keeps the board highly maneuverable while also making for smoother rail-to-rail transitions.
