The Pescado: a new powder ski by Eric Pollard


By Arjen on 23 August 2016 · 0

/pesk.’ka.do/ – A fish that’s been caught. Finally. A new skidesign that looks pretty interesting and promising for riding deep powder. The Pescado is not the first ski with a swallow tail (who remembers the Arno Adam Pro Model from Dynastar, which was a completely different ski, but WITH a swallow tail). LINE athlete Eric Pollard has been tracking the Pescado for years, and he’s finally ready to dish it out this season. A directional, surfy ski with bamboo sidewalls, Partly Cloudy Core™, and a veneer topsheet with a timeless graphic, the LINE Pescado fuses the best of surfing, art, and skiing with an innovative fish shape and swallow tail that’ll carve deeper and float faster. Line knows how to market those skis, but I'm really curious how they actually feel in 40 cm of freshies.

“The Pescado, much like the Magnum Opus, is the culmination of years of hard work with LINE and myself.” – Eric Pollard
