FISH – Stand Up Surfboard
- 7.3’ to 8.6'; 85 to 144 lltrs
Inspired by the 90s surf film Litmus and what I surfed, this range is designed to enjoy and make the most of UK conditions. The low rocker and width to length ratio make it able to make the most of slow waves by generating speed and when on the rail the pin like swallow tail will prevent slippage. The classic short fish shape, with a wide width from nose to tail and a blunt nose is a must have in the quiver and probably one of the most high performance eco-friendly SUS Fish in the world.
Will scale, up or down, versions of the board to match rider and conditions.
2, 4 or 5? If Steve Lis the inventor of the Fish back in the 60s isn’t fixed, nor am I. Mine’s a quad and with the deep single concave bottom I would recommend a quad set up. But, a fifth could work. Remember you have always also got the paddle to get over those flat sections and tighten your turns. If you can’t decide go for the quad option. Using FCS II side plugs that are flush to the board you can turn your board into a twin or quad when you wish.
LONGBOARD – Stand Up Surfboard
- 9.6’ x 25’’ x 4’’ - 111ltrs
- 9.6’ x 26” x 4” - 121ltrs
- 9.6’ x 27’ x 4’ - 132ltrs
Classic longboard shape with round nose and squash tail, but hard rails and a width/thickness combo that makes this probably one of the most high performance eco-friendly SUS Longboards in the world. The oiled wood finish is faster than any other surfboard surface, which allows the board to get into trim and classic style noseriding speed faster, meaning more time on the nose.
Happy to scale, up or down, versions of the board to match rider and conditions.
Single Fin v multi-fin longboard SUS
On a traditional longboard there will always be a need to compromise between the single or multi-fin set up, with the riders skill, board shape and type of wave important considerations. While these considerations also apply to the longboard SUS, the hand that you sometimes put in the wall to initiate a turn has been replaced by a paddle that can exert far greater torque.
As fins produce drag a tri-fin set up is only worthwhile if you are going to surf rail to rail in an aggressive style. If not, then why not have a single fin. With numerous fin sizes, shapes and placement options on a 10 inch FCS fin box you can have a looser feel, yet stable board that is able to do sweeping turns, set up on take off and enjoy time on the nose. But, you still have a paddle for bottom turns, cut backs and reducing rail to rail time.
If not sold on the single fin, or you can’t decide, no problem I can fit side fins where you want. Using FCS II side plugs that are flush to the board you can turn your board into a tri-fin or 2x1 when you wish.
