In 2000 the original Pod rapidly became a global favorite, allowing surfers to drop six inches off their shortboards and revolutionize punting.
The Pod Mod design is a heavily modified Pod, designed to be ridden even shorter and wider than the original, catering to the surfer that wants a little more volume forward to catch waves but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance. The tail has been widened for small wave glide, and the original single to double concave has been replaced with a flat entry to concave vee for quick rail to rail transitions.
Experienced surfers ride this board 3”- 6” shorter than you are tall.
TORQ X-LITE TECHNOLOGY
X-Lite is a brand new Epoxy technology developed specifically for performance boards. This new innovative technology is used exclusively on the Channel Islands model, the POD MOD.
The core of the board is an individually blown high precision EPS blank, wrapped in Biaxial cloth and using Epoxy resin. On the deck of the X-Lite is an additional layer of Impact Protection Mesh which is designed to disperse the shock of impact and reduce dings and heel dents. On the bottom is a Carbon torsion strip to control flex and provide snappy response. This technology has a massive strength to weight ratio. It is stronger with a lower environmental impact than a standard PU/Polyester board.
Our fin system is designed by Futures Fins of California - one of the most respected fin systems on the planet.
