Compared to when the fish surfboards were first designed in the 1970's, there are now many sizes to choose from. There are now fish surfboards out there that are up to 8 foot long.What's style suits you best? Before purchasing your fish surfboard there are a few things to keep in mind...
So you've come to a point in your surfing where you're ready for a little more maneuverability but not ready to make the jump to a shortboard (by the way, that's the vast majority of you that have never surfed anything other than a longboard). But what do you switch to?
Lets say you recently purchased a surfboard or maybe you’ve been surfing for a little while but you just go, regardless of what the waves look like. A tool that can immediately affect the quality of your experience is knowing what factors play into wave conditions.
Longboards are the catch-all board for young and old, new and experienced. Some of the salty loggers you see at your local point break have never put anything shorter than 9'0" under their feet. There's a perfectly good reason for that; their motto is "no wave left behind."
