Fish boards are all about fun.  They are the perfect transition boards for the jump from longboards to shortboards.  These little rockets are great in summer surf but we've seen them ripping in head-high winter swells.  

Traditionally fish are built with a swallow tail and twin keel fins but creative builders have added 3, 4 and even 5 fins.  They have also been modified to make both wake boards and kite boards like German master builder Rene Stenner (shown above) did.  The possibilities seem endless.


Our instructions were first released in 2005 and have gone through many updates and revisions since then.  As a registered buyer you'll get updates free for life.  We guide you from selecting the wood to glassing the board and everything in between.  There are 78 pages with over 200 illustrations currently.  We know there are lots of sites showing wood surfboard builds but you wouldn't buy a new car and say "I'll just use the manual from my old car" would you?  Our instructions were written for our plans and are the best in the industry.
