The Ether is the perfect pocket board excelling going rail to rail. With a swallow tail, this board gives you plenty of rail to play with while still allowing maximum bite and hold for your critical turning. The Chemistry Ether has more tail rocker than the other Chemistry high performance boards and works best in 4ft waves with a good pocket. Ride it rail to rail and in the critical section of the wave and let the swallow tail outline give you maximum range to take your surfing to the next level. With boxy rails you can order this model 1/8" to 1/4" thinner than your normal thickness. This will allow you to be closer to the water and gain more control of your board without losing paddling power.
