    new board decicion

    ive been riding fishs since i started surfing and im actually getting pretty good.im riding a 510 epxy quad perfestion thats supper fast and pretty easy to turn for me, but my friends think its a boat even know i can do fins out on it to prove them that even people on fishes can rip. i was wondering if i should get a short board, or keep fishn my style.

    Get a Fu**ing shortboard u dueche. NO ONE likes a gay fish rider. If you can do a fins out on a fish then u can probably boost on a short board.

    don't listen to ripnrad or anyone who tells you different to ride this or that. However I think a change in boards would be overall helpful in your surfing an that you should invest in a shortboard because its really practical and can be used in good waves (just in case we get "good" waves). But ride whatever you want.

    fishes are only good for small mushy stuff. i would get a shortboard as in an al merrick flyer cuae they do good in the small stuff except ankle high but when the waves are mushy ride your fish but when the waves are good and not mushy ride a shortboard. and that includes knee high up except once you get in the head rang e you wouldnt want your fish just a good shortboard that can handle over head stuff. but defiently get a shortboard.

    Way to many people try and ride whatever is the trendiest and coolest board. Ride whatever you want and stay true to your style. Fishes are sick, (look at ozzy wright) and shortboards are sick too. A fish is the the most practical for our surf. Just figure out your style and milk it.

    I'm agreeing with butcher. If you like fishes, stick with them. If you want to try a short board, go for it, but don't spend the money if it is just because your friends think you should.

    there are tons of boards that are mixes between short boards and fishes, its all just how you catagorize a "fish" to be. what are the dimensions of the board you are riding now? pretty much every company makes something sort of in between. js makes the fat fish which is like a shortboard but with a little more outline and foam all around. your best bet is to find a good local shaper and custom order something that would fit you. start with a shortboard template and ask for a slightly lighter rocker, slightly thicker or wider, whatever you like... even slater has been riding boards that could be catagorized as a fish, shorter, wider, and with less rocker than average shortboards. also the fish tail is just a wider squash tail that looks cool.
