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 can still rip in head-high winter swells. The 6' 2" fish is the "big brother" of our 5' 8" fish but with a twist.  The ribs are designed so that you can either build the board with a flat bottom or opt for a dual-concave profile at the back of the board.  Either way this board gives all the fun of the 5'8" but more flotation for bigger or less experienced riders.

Traditionally fish are built with a swallow tail and twin keel fins.  As you can see from the pictures builders are modifying them to be kite boards, wake surfers, and more.  The templates show how to build a traditional fish but use your imagination to change it to your perfect board.


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.
