Fish surfboards are great for surfing small waves as
these boards are usually shorter but wider and thicker. They generally
have a swallow tail design and a 2, 3 or 4 fin
setup. Fish used to be the summer board choice for advanced surfers but
now many designs and the bigger fish boards are the preferred choice
for people learning to surf. Fish allow learners to progress beyond the
turning limitations of a mini-mal surfboard or a longboard. They are also popular with the "big boys" who want something to rip it up on.
Types of Fish Surfboards
We stock a range of cheap fish surfboards online. Depending on stock we
have both epoxy fish and fibreglass fish which may include:
- the old school twin fin with large side fins and deep swallow tail.
These cruise over the flatest section and are loads of fun.
Quad fish- the four fin setup, sometimes with a fifth fin plug to turn them into a thruster. The fastest of all the fish!
Tri-fin fish - or the standard fish. Every surfer should have one as their small wave weapon for summer
surfboards are perfect for small waves. They move quickly over flat
sections of the wave while you are surfing and are easy to manoeuvre. Fish ride really smooth, look great and are a must-have for any surfer who spends a lot of time in the water over summer!
Fish surfboards don’t perform as well in bigger surf and tend to be
quite loose. Quadfish surfboards are the fastest but can be slightly
harder to turn. The experienced surfer will find they have to adapt
their surfing style as they move from a quad back to a thruster setup.
