Pickup Stick 8'0"
What are B-Grades?
Introducing the 8’0” Pickup Stick designed by Mike Olson with the help of Hendo. This beauty is built for amazing nose rides while still retaining a playful shortboard feel. A flat wide concave nose carries speed and glides through effortlessly long nose rides. Parallel rail lines through the body of the board insure trim speed. A rounded pin tail with the most rocker of any of our Pickup Sticks provides effortless turning, control and hold through high performance arcs off the tail. The bottom contour is part of what really makes this board magic… a forgiving catch-free chine runs along the rails from in-front of the fins all the way around the nose. A single concave to double V out the tail adds planing speed and allows the board to easily transition from rail to rail. Sounds complicated and it is but, all you need to know is how effortless and fun the board feels in a wide variety of small wave conditions.
How does it feel? ...the new 8’0” Pickup Stizzle rides much shorter than it looks standing on the tail and much longer and more stable than it looks standing on the nose... part mid-size, part full blown nose rider, guaranteed wave count elevator fun maximizer.
