The Santa Cruz Pumpkin Seed Hybrid Surfboard does it all from small, gutless surf to high-speed tub riding. Designed by renown shaper Doug Haut, the Pumpkin features the design elements of a fish with the performance characteristics of a pin tail for maximum versatility in a wide range of surfing conditions. Its wide contemporary nose and relaxed rocker enables this board to paddle fast and accelerate out of the hole like a jack rabbit on roids. A Cruise Missile Concave design (single to double concave bottom) and a dynamic rail profile also further complement the rail-to-rail performance and versatility.
For improved durability, snappiness, and lightweight performance, the Pumpkin features PowerLyte sandwich construction. Santa Cruz uses a lightweight, recyclable, hydrophobic, and shapeable EPS foam core and layers it with Flyweight Rhino glass (a four-ounce layer of pre-saturated epoxyskin fiberglass) and Super Flex Hull Armor (flexible high-density composite materials) to create a protective torsion box around your board. In phase two of the layering process, a layer of Scud Enamel (pre-saturated epoxyskin fiberglass) is added and to a vibration-dampening skin to absorb vibrations and reduce board chatter while you surf. As a result, the Pumpkin is 30% lighter and more flexible than other EPS foam core boards on the market today.
The Pumpkin Seed also comes standard with five fin slots and a set of Curtis Hesselgrave designed Future Thruster fins that are made of high quality fiberglass for optimum performance. All of Santa Cruz's Powerlyte boards come equipped with an SC Knot Board Bag for convenience and protection during transport and storage.
