£ 525.00

The Retro Fish Surfboard, from Wild Atlantic Surfboards

Our Retro Fish surfboard has a high performance feel and drive. Perhaps incorrectly side-lined as a summer board, our retro fish surfboard has single to double concave’s, relaxed entry and exit rockers and foam distributed to give the best balance between float and control. It it is ideal as a first shortboard or intermediate all-rounder. The full outline, swallow tail and more relaxed rocker means that the board is designed to cruise, carve but still carry a high-performance edge. You can spice the board up with power twins for more hold or glide with retro keels. The retro fish surfboard is designed to absolutely maximise the fun to be had in average, everyday surf by catching almost as many waves as a longboard, gliding over the flat sections whilst being super responsive underfoot enabling highlines and blistering speed. A retro twin fish could be one of the fastest boards you ever ride. A template which goes as far back as 1969 – If you are looking for an original this is for you.

The twin fish is one of the most iconic of surfboards originating as a knee board in the 70’s drive to find higher performance models past longer boards.. Overlooked by the dominance of the thruster in the 80’s, the Fish Surfboard has enjoyed a huge comeback recently as an enjoyable high performance go to. A quiver must, set in PU for waves with punch so you can stay with the power of the wave and perform. This surfboard will improve your surfing. Choose 2-3 inches smaller in length than your regular shortboard and go a little wider to achieve higher volume. Fully customisable with tints and sprays.

Production

Wild Atlantic Surfboard Construction

The Base Construction (a polyurethane blank with polyester resin) is still considered the most versatile and all-round performance specific construction used the world over by touring surf professionals. Our shapers use only premium materials when working on Wild Atlantic Surfboards and those materials are used to produce top-quality boards; US Blanks at the core in blue foam and Hexcel Glass for the laminate bonded with Silmar resin for best balance between weight, performance and durability. Each of our surfboard shapers lines are designed especially for surfing in Ireland and the Atlantic. They are tried and tested in some of the wildest and perfect surf you will find in any hemisphere. That said our boards will stand up across the world as high-performance adaptable quality surfboards. Each shaper on our lines contributed their individual twists and interpretations to provide the best surfboard possible for our conditions.

Wild Atlantic Surfboards are finished in 24/7 heat-controlled environments to ensure curing times are at optimum levels to reach a finish unrivalled in Europe. Our boards are sanded and finished to give a long-lasting new effect and are packed in eco-friendly flex hex reusable packaging. The average time for a custom surfboard order after discussions with our shaping team is 30 days after signing off on custom dimensions and deposits received. Custom surfboards are not refundable and once orders have been placed and due to the nature of customisation they cannot be refunded. We respect our shapers and the craft of surfboard shaping. Stock dimensions have been planned for best use with tried and tested reasoning on dimensions and volume, but we accept custom orders and you will find our shaping team more than happy to discuss making a board for your specific needs. If a surfboard dimension chosen is in stock, we will ship the board to you within 3-5 working days.
