First of all, I need to give credit to Richard Kenvin for bringing this style of craft to life. This board has many features from my fish design; low rails, belly in the nose, single concave thru the fin region, and low rocker. The round nose offers more paddling power to keep the board as short as possible for performance. The step in the nose displaces the volume out of the wide plan shape to make the board lighter, more flexible, and more responsive. The dual marine ply fins offer drive and hold with positive buoyancy. The straight back and rounded corners of the tail offer more release in the pocket than other fish designs. This model is currently one of my best sellers and I highly recommend one in every quiver.
