Lib Tech Pickup Stick B-Grade Surfboard
What makes it a B-Grade? Occasionally a board comes off the line with a cosmetic blemish and in the quality control department at the Lib factory, it becomes a B-Grade. Generally that means you get the same great board and save a few bucks in the process. All B-Grade boards are covered under the same warranty, perform to the same standard as an A-Grade and often times are sought after for being truly one of a kind and unique. Give us a call with any questions on any B-Grade Beauties!
6’6” PICKUP STICK:
The 6’6” is the shortest of our “mid-sized” Pickup Stick series shape that perfectly fills the gap between a shortboard and a longboard, but can best be described as the ultimate fun board. A speedy squash tail, full nose, straight rail lines and solid volume give this board great wave catching ability and speed. The smooth rocker line and slightly flipped nose combined with a single to double to flat tail bottom contour set up high performance shortboard style maneuvers. Refined but forgiving rails and full shape and mild nose concave, make this a sweet playful nose rider. The bottom line is: non stop wave catching performance/fun. Whether you are a first timer looking for a board that will be easy to progress on, a weekend warrior that is looking for maximum wave time, or if you’re a ripper looking for that transition period mid sized fun/performance option that takes an average day and makes it special. The Pickup Stick is always a perfect choice.
Sizes: L:6’6” x N:17.8” x W:21.50” x T:16.5” x TH:2.7” (43.9 cl)
7’0” PICKUP STICK:
The Pickup Stick “mid size” shape perfectly fills the gap between a shortboard and a longboard with a little extra short board performance focus. A smooth flowing shape and rocker combined with a single to double to flat tail contour for high performance shortboard style maneuvers and a concave for nose riding lift, refined but forgiving rails and great volume all add up to non stop wave catching performance/ fun. Whether you are first timer looking for a board that will be easy to progress on, a weekend warrior that is looking for maximum wave time or if you are a ripper looking for that “transition period” mid sized fun/performance option that takes an average day and makes it special, the Pickup Stick is always a perfect choice.

7’6” PICKUP STICK:
Our longest widest Pickup Stick with a “short” longboard feel. The 7’6” is the perfect option for a bigger surfer in all conditions or an average to smaller surfer who wants to energize small, softer slow moving, mushy surf. A smooth flowing shape and rocker combined with a single to double to flat contour for high performance shortboard style maneuvers and a concave for nose riding lift, refined but forgiving rails and great volume all ad up to non stop wave catching performance/fun. The extra width adds stability and speed making it a great choice for everyone from first timers to pros looking for a good time.
Sizes: L:7’6” x N:18.0” x W:22.0” x T:15.0” x TH:2.75” (52.9 cl)
8'0” PICKUP STICK:
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.
Featuring a 9” single fin box with two FOCII FCSII™ compatible side fin boxes.
Sizes: L:8’0” x N:19.3” x W:22.30” x T:15.0” x TH:2.8” (59.1 cl)
Lib Tech Pickup Stick Surfboard - At a Glance
I have ridden every size that the Lib Tech Pickup Stick comes in, my favorite sizes are the 6'6" and 8'0". The durability that comes with Lib Techs construction is great when traveling and allows you to not worry about dinging your board. These boards paddle into waves very easily and perform well in small to medium sized surf. The Pickup Stick is not the best performance option for perfect waves, but it is a fantastic mid-length choice for the mushy waves that we often get here in the Northwest.Ethan
