The Pop Stick 7'0 is based on a traditional surfboard shape and designed for all levels on surfing. It is the ideal board for someone who is looking to step down from a Mini Mal and start doing proper turns, or just the lazy, more experienced surfer who wants an extra bit of volume for the weaker Summer swells.

The new Pop Stick template has a bit more curve, with the wide-point pushed forward a little bit. This ensures that you have plenty of volume under your chest, meaning you'll never be struggling for paddle power. A bit of extra volume up front also gives a little bit of extra stability and will help the board plane across fat or weaker sections of the wave. 

While the new shape has essentially increased the surface area a little bit, we've thinned the board out overall, which is particularly noticeable through the rails. This makes the rails a bit easier to sink through turns and generally makes the board a bit more responsive. We feel that this has allowed us the perfect balance of manoeuvrability and stability.

The new 7'0" Pop Stick also features a round tail. Generally, it feels a bit looser, but is nice and smooth, especially when transitioning between turns. While the round tail adds an extra bit of surface area, this helps give a bit more stability on the back foot. Once again, we've reduced the thickness a little bit, increasing responsiveness, and also allowing the tail to have a bit more bite in hollower waves.
