The fish was the first board that I ever shaped. I have a deep connection with this design as it is one I have been tinkering with ever since I began shaping. The design opened my eyes to what twin fin boards are capable of. The fish has an extremely positive feel, and is a very efficient board when it comes to harnessing speed down the line. I have been constantly evolving my rendition of the fish over the last few years in pursuit of high performance alternative surfing.
I may play around with the bottom contour depending on the length and type of wave in mind, but generally I’ll put double concave fading to spiral V out the tail on these boards, which gives the board a lively feel and an exceptional amount of speed when going down the line. The bottom shape and rocker work together to provide tons of release off the top; allowing the design to shred a bit harder than normal. It’s flat deck, beak nose, and slope rail help to retain a friendly amount of volume throughout, making it a great paddler and an all around easy board to ride. I find these to be the perfect balance between a cruise oriented board, and a performance oriented board; an essential part of a surfer’s perfect quiver.
The fish can be tuned for knee high to double overhead waves of almost any kind.
