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.


These templates are to be used in conjunction with the Hollow Wood Surfboard Manual available on this site. They are only available to people who have purchased the manual and are not sold independently.
