A Short History of the Fish Surfboard:
Steve Lis is credited for creating the Fish Surfboard in 1967 but it evolved from older concepts. This board was first developed as a knee board but Lis split the tail creating the extra width needed to support the fins to make the shape a true surfboard.
Don't let this short, thick, wide-tailed and round-nosed surfboard fool you. This board is built for speed on small surf days. The small scale is easy to paddle. Plus, with the unique design you will be catching small waves while your buddies are still in the surf waiting. The Fish surfboard is perfect for the intermediate surfer transitioning from the longboard or if you want to get the most from your local break and follow the waves on a less than perfect surf day, pick up one of these and hit the beach.
