Whether it’s your grommet’s first board or you need a high performance piece of foam to keep your wave count up through Summer, the new 5’6 Pop Stick will get the job done!
We’ve updated the shape of the 5’6 a bit this year. It’s got a slightly higher widepoint creating a bit of extra volume up front for paddle power, stability and just generally milking it on the small days. We’ve also kept plenty of surface area through the tail for a bit of extra drive and a nice rounded tail that won’t hinder your top to bottom surfing if your that way inclined.
We’ve thinned it out a touch, added a stringer, and combined with the new fin system, this thing is a weapon. Don’t believe us? Check out Perth ripping in the clip below!
The Pop Sticks are based on a traditional surfboard shape and designed for all levels on surfing, although we have given them a little bit of extra width and thickness. Suggested lengths will depend on height, weight and skill levels. For more info on sizes, check out our Size Recommendations page.
For the beginner to intermediate rider, these boards are a good step when progressing from a Mini Mal, or when the goal is to ride a fibreglass shortboard.
For the experienced rider, these boards have a little bit more rocker, making them more suitable for better wave conditions, and similar in performance to their usual shortboard.
The boards are constructed using exclusive Softlite Moulds – This ensures that every board comes out identical with no imperfections. It also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and more durable than competitors who use similar cores.
No screws on deck -No kicking your toes on screws, looks good and is easier to wax deck.
Bones and Shanks Fin System – Easy to install and remove fins. Compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance
Bamboo Stringer System – This is re-enforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex.
