About the board.... A 30 year old concept that
has been transformed into modern designs to
the point where only the name remains the same.
we now favor the thruster fin set up as opposed
to the old twin fin set-up. Whilst the twin
fin set-up is still legitimately being used,
we have found that the directional stability
that the thruster set-up provides is much better
for todays radical surfing.
What you are essentially left with is a very
short and round shortboard. You simply will
not find a looser, more easy to turn board.
The easy rail to rail means that the surfer
can generate unbelievable speed even in the
most tired of waves.
As with all wide boards, control at high speeds
is always forfeited to some extent. Our fish
designs have single or double wingers to bring
the tail blocks in more tightly. This gives
a much better 'pivot' point when turning sharply.
The extra edges that come with the wingers also
combine rather nicely with concaves and 'off
the rail' channels. Edges simply give you more
grip which means you can bottom turn harder
and bash the lip harder. It is probably also
worth mentioning that small boards have an amazing
recovery rate. That is to say that when you
are pulling off a manoeuvre, if you can possibly
stay upright (and sometimes even when you can't)
the fish is very likely to stay attached to
Most Suitable for.... You really need to be
a shortboard rider and not weigh a great deal
more than 11 stone ( if you do weigh more, then
check out our retro rocket design). The fish
will perform in a relatively large range of
conditions but if you're looking for small surf
performance this board will rule the waves.
