Shaper’s com­ments

This board re­duces area with the dou­ble fly­ers be­hind the fin sys­tem al­low­ing for mid face carves and di­rec­tion changes that will send you into hy­per­space. The board is made for ac­cel­er­a­tion and drive. The rocker is made to carve tight power arcs and the foam is hand carved from the blank.

First Im­pres­sions

The ESP looks pretty in­ter­est­ing. It has some pretty cool fea­tures like a crazy paintjob, a tex­tured deck and bunch of fly­ers down the bot­tom which is re­ally cool. I re­ally want to ride it to see what this thing can do.

Tester’s com­ments

The ESP went re­ally dif­fer­ent to how I thought it was go­ing to be. It looks all punked-out with the pink spray, skull and cross bones but it felt like a re­ally good tra­di­tional board. It held a rail and car­ried so much speed through carves where as I thought it would just be a jump ma­chine. It went well was down the line and push­ing through turns as it was re­ally drivey. It has a semi squar­ish rail that has a fu­tur­is­tic feel, which gives max­i­mum ac­cel­er­a­tion and drive. It felt a lit­tle longer but still went in small waves, car­ried speed through turns and you could still throw it around. It wasn’t an air board but ev­ery other as­pect of it felt good. I think this board would go in a lot of dif­fer­ent waves and be a lot of fun on a point break but still has what you want for a beach break.

De­spite the pink punk fa­cade, Wade found the ESP nailed the tra­di­tional as­pects.
