When a surfer is ready to go from longboard surfboards to a new surfboard, the retro fish provides a catchy quip that is sure to curb the desire for adventure. This board is recommended for both intermediate surfers and for those who want to transition from a long board to a short board. Surfing boards that can catch a wave as naturally as a fish are worthy of the retro fish name. Pivot on a dime with the dovetail design on the back end of the board, rather than the rail-to-rail turning action from a classically designed board. This uniquely designed board maneuvers quickly, catches a gnarly set and is easy to paddle.
Designed to be quicker than quick, the quad construction of the tail of the retro fish channels water off the rails to acquire unbeatable speeds and impressive cut-backs. Because it is as wide as a mini-longboard, this board boasts the same stability but is much shorter in length. Available in a variety of rockin' colors and patterns, this board also comes in epoxy, fiberglass and NexGen construction materials. Choose from any of the available constructions for a ride with a custom feel.
Retro fish surfboards constructed from traditional fiberglass are for the surfer that loves the appeal of original design. Fiberglass surfboards offer the ultimate in responsiveness, but are not so forgiving to bumps and falls. These boards can chip easily, so don? forget the travel repair kit. For surfing traditionalists, nothing less will do. If a lighter design and a finish that is tougher than nails are priorities, choose the retro fish board made from epoxy. A more modern material that is more environmentally friendly, enjoy the lightweight feel, increased floating capabilities and easier paddling potential of the epoxy board. These boards tend to decompose more quickly when exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods. This board feels a little stiffer in the water, but delivers with the benefits listed above.
If fiberglass and epoxy designs are equally appealing, get the best of both worlds. A retro fish made with a blended construction material called NexGen marries the fiberglass and epoxy construction into a state-of-the-art union. Lightweight, responsive, and virtually indestructible, don? sacrifice the benefits of either the fiberglass or epoxy construction. Remember to protect surfboards of all construction with a surf bag that reflects the damaging sun rays away from the board. Surf? up, dude!
