What people are saying about it:

“I noticed it didn’t have a stringer and DMS is running this Caron Wrap Technology and it seemed to have a different flex. It’s incredibly light and I was really surprised how easy it was, it didn’t feel like I had to adjust in any way. The DMS Gherkin has this spring to it which I really liked and you didn’t have to work hard between turns. Something that really surprised be about this board was how wide the tail was. Generally when you have a really wide tail it can limit your turning capacity but it seemed to hold an edge really well. I think pointbreak waves is where this board really excels because it has that flow and liveliness and you don’t really have to work to much in between your turns. I don’t want to give it back [laughs].” – Asher on Tracks Mag
