"The Pickle" model is a performance board that holds a little extra volume allowing you to get in earlier on waves of consequence.
Each board is 100% totally handcrafted by Steve from etc surfboards.
A hard rail-line till about 1ft from the nose aids drive and assists release through turns. This board is very happy above the lip-line and suits intermediate to advanced surfers.
The extra buoyancy from the XPS core also allows this board to be surfed in average and fat waves. Makes a great travel board if the airlines manage to damage it you can still surf it even if the XPS core is visible as it impervious to water.
The XPS is 15% more buoyant than EPS so these boards feel different to fiberglass however is a non-issue once you get used to them.
It is skinned in Paulownia wood (or an optional cork deck) and fitted with solid cork rails. Outside of fin boxes and leash plug the board contain no resin or fiberglass and is only finished with lanolin. The benefit of lanolin is that it becomes sticky when in salt water so greatly reduces the need for wax.
