I rode that board knee-stomach high surf for years and would argue otherwise. I'm about 90% set on getting another exactly like it, if I don't do a mini simmons this time. I'm worried that I'm too fat to ride a beater at 190lbs.
Yeah..ive ridden my retro fish on small weak days too. Its not a bad choice, and works in those conditions better than many other boards would.
I think there are a lot of weak/small wave shapes out there that would be a little more fun in those conditions than a retro fish with keels
A rounder fish shape like a ...Lost Uber, Bing Dharma, WRV Stingray...everyone seems to be making one
Even a small egg like a compact disk kind of shape.
Something wide in the tail and round so the turning radius is tight do it for me on small days, more so than a retro fish.
