Welcome to the Fish surfboard section of Buyboardz! We offer fish surfboards in all styles and colors, so you are sure to find what you are looking for here. These contemporary Fish surfboards have a sharp nose and swallow tail, which gives them excellent maneuverability on smaller waves. Although some of the specifics on Fish surfboards have changed over the years, the general shape and use of the board has not. Fish surfboards are typically shorter and wider than shortboards, so they are made for surfers with an intermediate to expert skill level. As a beginner, you can learn how to surf on a fish surfboard, but we would highly recommend that you start with a softboard or longboard.
Fish surfboards are shaped like a fish's body, with a pointed nose and blunted tail. Shorter and wider than most shortboards, Fish surfboards are about 5 1/2 feet in length, and 18.5 inches wide with slight variations in size, depending on what you want. The traditional fish surfboards of the 1960's had twin keel fins, which caught waves surprisingly well and gave the Fish surfboard its popularity. Contemporary Fish surfboards usually have 3 skegs (fins) instead of 2. The shortness of the fish surf board gives them great drive and lift, creating large amounts of speed in a short time. So you can zip around those small or even medium-sized waves if you're really good, with quickness and awesome maneuverability on a Fish surfboard.
Because of the shortness and added width of contemporary Fish surf boards, these boards have a tendency to ride flat on the wave and don't make it easy to surf vertically. This makes them a tough board to learn on for the beginners out there. Beginners usually need a little more length and stability to learn how to surf vertically, before they can graduate to racing around the waves on a fish. However, the Fish surf board is an excellent board for the surfer who wants to zip quickly through small to medium waves. Because this board gains speed quickly and allows for great maneuverability, it is best for intermediate to advanced surfers.
If you are looking for a fun new boarding experience, why not try one of our Fish surfboards? We offer them in all styles and colors, and they are great fun to race around on small to medium waves. Because of their unique fish-like design, shortness and width, the Fish surfboard gives you great speed and maneuverability, and is recommended for intermediate to expert level surfers.
