If there is one board every surfer must have in their quiver, it's a fish!
Underground fish are short and wide with a flat rocker principle for lots of fun and performance. Single to double concave hard tail rail and pulled in single flyer allows you plenty of paddle power, planing ability, and keeps you surfing tight in the pocket.
These design elements make a fish the perfect board for those smaller, mushy days, as it will allow you to get into weaker waves with ease, and float right through flat sections. However, these boards are also extremely fun and functional in good quality waves and waves of size.
The classic twin keel fish was developed in the mid 70’s as a kneeboard by Steve Lis. Pintail surfboards were a favourite of his, but his swim fins would hang over the side creating drag. He decided to split the tail, giving him the width needed to support his fins, while still holding on to the performance characteristics of a pintail. This fish proved to be a barrel machine, able to paddle in early, take fairly late drops, hold high and tight in the pocket and was snappy off the top. It wasn’t long until he had refined the design to suit stand up surfers, and the fish design took off.
