You've never seen a board like the Space Pickle. An all new ultra-wide thumb tail design that's sure to take your wave riding to the next level. Built for wave riding and high stoke levels the Space Pickle is a carving machine. But, it’s so versatile it performs in flat-water as well. The board tracks straight and allows you to turn when you want to. The stability of the board is a combination of the board volume, width, round nose and wide thumb tail. These design features add surface area and lift in the tail for an efficient glide across the water. Due to its aggressive ‘V’ spine the board will easily pivot from side to side in waves or when there is foot pressure close to the rails.

It feels like a long board if you let it go straight but when you want to carve a turn it’s fast like a short board. Small enough to fit inside a van, stable enough for flat-water and big enough to take on the waves. An innovative design that enables high performance wave riding and high stoke levels. Made using our Wood Veneer Sandwich construction and Future Response Technology, the Space Pickle is a durable, lightweight surf machine.

+ WOOD VENEER SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION (WVS)
+ A stronger , more durable ding resistant board structure resulting in improved durability without the extra weight.

+ ROUND NOSE & WIDE THUMB TAIL
+ Added surface area and lift in the tail enables maximum maneuverability and smooth turns. Efficient glide across waves.

+ DOUBLE CONCAVE BOTTOM SHAPE
+ Increase response and stability.

+ AGGRESSIVE ‘V’ SPINE
+ Releases the tail, increasing the rocker at the rail line. this displacement effect allows for smooth carving turns.

+ VARIABLE TUCKED HARD RAIL
+ Added bite enables tighter transitions.

+ EVA PAD
+ Comfortable, high density traction material with uniform support.

+ QUAD FIN CONFIGURATION
+ Jet tail thrusters up front and standard ones in the back (remove center fins for more aggressive performance, remove outer fins for more controlled ride)

+ VENT PLUG
+ Manually open and close vent plug to allow your board to 'breath', equalizing internal and external pressure from hear and atmospheric pressure changes.

Paddler Profile:
The Space Pickle is made for surf and flat-water paddlers looking for versatility from flat-water to head high surf.

WVS - Wood Veneer Sandwich Construction
High performance. High allure. Lightweight and impact resistant WVS technology uses an EPS core and multidirectional layers of 6 oz weaved lightweight glass, resin and wood.

During each layering step vacuum bagging techniques are used to enhance the bonding strength. Proprietary to Slingshot this construction controls the durability and flex of the board and the result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. A final layer of glass provides the highest fit and finish of any Stand Up Paddleboard.
