Notes from Banjo on the FCD Twin-Fin Fish
FCD Board Report –
The first thing I noticed about the 5’7″ Fish was how lightweight it was, making it a lot easier to throw around in the surf. I usually ride smaller Fish, somewhere around 5’4″, so i didn’t really know what to expect. The extra few inches made it way easier to paddle into waves both big and small, it also held a nice line off the bottom turn in the bigger waves where most Fish tend to slide out. I got a couple of sneaky cheater fives on it too which was surprising for a Fish, sometimes they go under pretty easy. I might have to wax her all the way to the nose!! This board for me went the best in small to medium waves and I imagine it would be a perfect summer board, but surprisingly is quite fun in bigger waves too. Enjoy!!
