This board combines a modernized, sleeked up retro fish outline with a progressive rocker and one-of-a-kind freaky hull contours. Glide or gouge, float or carve, crouch low with five on the nose, or stand tall and arch the back.
Introducing a new rocker and hull contours to the traditional fish outline. A very deep single concave running from entry through the entire bottom and even off the tail, with inset deep doubles inside the single (we are calling them “sluice-box” caves). This extreme hull contour creates a water jet effect (we are calling it the “jet stream”) by using gravity and centrifugal force to speed water across and through the entirety of the bottom of the board. It acts much like the same principles guiding free friction, but allows for the fins to do their job more efficiently with less drag and more drive and a turbulence-smoothing, faster ride than ever before. Perfect for small waves and fish type shapes. Old world meets future world. Each board can be made with hand done one-of-a-kind resin art by request.

***Please note that epoxy resin is not clear like polyester resin. The foam structure & S-glass used in fabrication of our epoxies yields a stronger more durable product. Due to these factors, airbrushes or traditional full length resin tints with cutlaps have a much more mottled, hazy and organic final aesthetic than traditional polyester/pu boards do. The edges do not cut as clean & you can see the fiberglass & patches more visibly. Resin tints on poly/pu boards appear more clear and smooth, while the epoxies appear more organic & a bit more rough. Many people like this look as it conveys the nature of the handmade, high grade composite components of the boards. However we like to make surfers considering an epoxy resin tint board aware of this distinctive appearance. You will notice there are very few places in the world where you can order a custom epoxy surfboard with traditional resin tints. We are stoked to make this option available to you. If you like a more organic look you'll be delighted. If you're looking for a spray booth style, more plastic wrap look you won't dig it.

|Set down squat down or lie down, cuz here’s 16 minutes or so about a surprising adventure that changed Todd’s perspective on combining modern high performance design features with classic fish concepts. It's all talkin' and board flippin' from the shapeshifter's private room, but we think you'll enjoy this little fishy's diatribe almost as much as riding one.|

They’re back ’cause they’re fast. This is an updated version of the original “Fish” design. I’ve incorporated a modernized single-to-double concave-to-accelerated spiral vee bottom, and blended it with the original retro outline, rocker, and thickness flow…why? for the enjoyment of hair-raising speed runs. Check out the website to watch streaming video of this twinny fanging its way through the lineup.
Also available with quad setup. By adding another fin over on your rail, you increase the leverage placed on your fins when going into a turn; this equates to more drive and more speed when you put this puppy into drive – a beautiful thing.
Ideal conditions: ankle high to shoulder high weak waves.
Experience: intermediate through advanced
Designed for: super speeding gutless junk
