MODEL SHOWN INJECTION TECH..
Just like the well-known American delicacy, the Gherkin is short, wide and flat, and as quick as the fast food haunts you’d get one from. The accentuated crown tail provides for some extra bite and control through turns and flies over flat sections of the wave. Merging the nose entry from our Crumpet model with the tail shape and v off the tail of the Crown model, the Gherkin blends performance and flow creating a user friendly surfboard.
The Gherkin can be ridden in a much shorter length that your standard shortboard and is the ideal board for those conditions you’d normally opt to ride a longboard.
"Generally when you have a really wide tail it can limit your turning capacity but it seemed to hold an edge really well. I think pointbreak waves is where this board really excels because it has that flow and liveliness and you don’t really have to work to much in between your turns. I don’t want to give it back [laughs].” – Asher on Tracks Magazine
Pete 5'10 GHERKIN
Hey Des, this gherkin rips mate! Im sure you saw the surf this morning, i was about to go home and decided to take the gherkin out in absolute south swell onshore garbage and had a great time! Paddles amazing, surfs backhand really good.. heaps of speed.. i ended up using machado quads which went good but i might try some larger fins as per your recommendation at some point.. this thing grovels awesome i can wait to take it out on some cleaner days at the points too.. definately better than my xxxxxx which i've just put up for sale. Glad i went with your suggestion on riding it shorter and packing a tad more foam in.. couldnt be more stoked
