Nick and his Friendly Fish

Hello out there in cyber world!...this is a new custom Friendly Fish for Nick who likes surfing smaller boards in all kinds of waves. 

 

He was chasing something with a bit of volume but didn't want to compromise the performance and when he saw the Friendly Fish....well he was hooked. 

The Friendly Fish has a flat deck but the rails are still low and foiled and typical of high performance boards. This gives Nick the advantage of being able to bust out the moves while maintaining the luxury qualities of a fish.... the Fouruster fin configuration for optimum functionality.

I custom hand-painted this board for Nick ....something  green and blue and up to you is what he said...This board features a poly propylene tail pad on the deck for added strength and the blue stripe on the bottom is actually high tenacity poly ethylene...we just call it blue nylon.

Nick is about 6' 1'' tall and weighs 92 kgs.

This board is  5'9" x 201/2" x 25/8" and is 35.5 litres.
