This classic wooden fish surfboard shape is true to its roots in the 1960s. It’s a great retro addition to any quiver or collection. It has a flatter rocker and wide profile, and is distinctive for its paddle power and wave-catching vooma. The ride is fast and zippy, both in small and medium-sized waves. In between surfs it makes a beautiful display item. If you’re 75kg or below, choose the shorter version. If you’re above 75kg and/or in need of some paddle power, have a look at the 6’ version.
As this is a custom order, there is the opportunity for a number of customisations which will be discussed with you once you have placed your order. These include the choice of wood and other finishing features, volume and shape.
Who will make my surfboard?
Your board will be made by Patrick Burnett, who has 15 years of experience in making wooden surfboards. Pat makes his boards under the “one pair of hands” principle. He selects the wood, cuts and prepares it, designs the final shape, builds the wooden structure, shapes it, and finally attends to the glassing and finishing. Being intimately involved with every stage of the process gives him a great deal of control over required customisations and the quality of the final surfboard.
Typically 5′.6″ x 21″ x 3″, but as this surfboard is ordered as a custom-made item dimensions shown are a guide and can be adjusted according to the requirements of whoever it is being made for.
As above, this is a custom-made item and the volume will be adjusted according to the unique specifications of whoever it is being made for. The volume usually varies between 30 and 40 litres.
The original fish shape comes with a twin-keel fin setup. These can be done as glass-on fins or as boxes.
