- PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & SPECS
YOUR BOARD WILL BE PERSONALLY HANDCRAFTED WITH PASSION, HOWEVER, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING MINOR DELAYS RELATED TO THE QLD/NSW BORDER RESTRICTIONS ALTHOUGH WE HAVE ADAPTED OUR PROCESSES TO MINIMISE THESE DELAYS
The new ‘Aussie made’ Island Style Salty Fish is perfectly seasoned as a high volume hybrid fish shape that’s ready for everyday surf conditions.
Why is it called a hybrid? Because compared to a regular shortboard it has a slightly wider nose and tail, and extra width through the center. This model does have all the refinements of a modern performance board combining the thinner tail and low rail edge to maximise response and maneuverability. And the extra volume creates more stability which essentially makes it easier to attain surfing at a higher level.
The Salty Fish has a moderate amount of rocker making it versatile enough to use in everyday ‘lackluster’ conditions, yet it will still perform really well when the waves really turn on. Turning will feel smooth with plenty of glide and flow while on the waves face. The extra buoyancy is an added advantage for better paddling and getting into waves a little earlier.
Made at the S-Lab facility on QLD's Gold Coast by experienced craftsman, the Island Style Salty Fish is constructed using the highest quality foam, composites, fibreglass and resins sourced from trusted suppliers. These boards are built to deliver optimum flex, performance, durability and clean aesthetics for your shedding pleasure.
This hybrid Fish is the perfect option for aging and heavier riders who’re starting to lose their wave count and still want a board offering a relatively high level of performance. Alternatively, riders progressing from a longer board or Mini Mal and are looking for their first shorter board to help with their progression.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the build process for these boards we cannot accept cancellations beyond 48 hours after the order has been placed
