easy rider beginner fish size chart


Purpose: We've had a ton of requests for a larger fish suited for surfers transitioning down from mid-length boards, something similar but more compact than the greatly successful Over Easy. We needed something slightly fuller than a shortened speed egg, with some added speed off the tail. With that, the Easy rider was born. A perfect half way marker between the Codfather and Over Easy, the Easy rider is a wave snatching machine for intermediate surfers desiring a strong wave count in busy lineups, and a cozy way to introduce newer surfers to fast turns, speed pump sections, and a first go at a top to bottom attack. The longer sleeker fishy template carries extra foam for easy paddling. Its 5-fin setup allows for the trusty, stable thruster, or a zippy, loose quad for more speed and fin release. A subtle single concave to vee bottom carries the same contours as the Codfather for perfect rail to rail rollover and massive acceleration off the back foot. The rails are slightly lower than a retro fish, locking better hold through tight turns and steeper sections. The Easy Rider is the ideal transition board for taking your surfing to the intermediate level or boosting your wave count if you're already dominant in the lineup.

Designed For: Beginner surfer moving down from a mid-length towards intermediate surfing, or intermediate/advanced surfer adding foam to snag more waves when it's crowded.

Sweet Spot: Knee to Slightly overhead, with its true identity revealed in waist to head high surf. Perfect in playful, fun conditions, especially reef and point breaks.
