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.
