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.
We would recommend this for beginner riders weighing 25-40kg, although if you are an experienced surfer up to 80-85kg, it should float you as well.

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.
