LINE Sakana - Shaped and hand drawn by Eric Pollard
Sakana or Fish in Japanese. From sushi to giant squids, the Japanese are famous for their sea creatures. Being an island nation it's no surprise that fish are an important part of Japanese cuisine.
ENTER THE SAKANA
An all-new ski bred from the same DNA as the Pescado – only tailored towards a more all-mountain experience. Featuring a similarly styled tail knockout, the Sakana is a resolute paradigm shift ski design. At 105mm underfoot and featuring the same geometric principles of the Pescado, the Sakana can exhibit a variety of turn shapes. We introduced a Carbon Flax Weave and continued with the pushed back mounting point, allowing a skier to size down without losing edge-grip and power across all terrain and snow conditions.

Eric Pollard and LINE introduced the Pescado: an oversized powder ski with a knocked out swallowtail and massive forebody. The Pescado marked a drastic departure from the existing trajectory of one of the longest and most fruitful partnerships in ski design between LINE and Eric Pollard. After years of skiing and testing, LINE realized that the same design ethos that birthed the Pescado should not be limited to merely powder-specific applications.
Beyond representing LINE Skis as an athlete, he has cemented his name in ski culture by designing the graphics and shapes of his pro-model skis since the early 2000s.

LINE and Eric have teamed up once again to present “Burning Sidewall”, a short film produced by Nimbus Independent which highlights exactly what the ski is capable of. Featuring the talents of Canadian Rob Heule and Pollard himself, the film is less of an explanation of the ski but rather a celebration of skiing.
Shot in Pollard’s backyard of Mt. Hood, Oregon at Timberline Lodge, “Burning Sidewall” chases Rob and Pollard as they carve, slash, and blast through the rolling terrain that has been so instrumental in shaping and inspiring Eric for the entire course of his career.
