    lost rnf

    i was ganna get a ci pod but I ended up with a Lost round nose fish, it is perfect on the smaller days and can handel head high conditions, its 5'8 tall 2 1/2" thick and im 6'3 so if you get a pod or rnf def down size a bit, about 4 or 6 inches.

    I have one very fun in crap or small waves, it keeps me off a longboard alot in the summer. My only complaint is I wish I had purchased the tri instead of the quad, but thats just my opinion. Worth the $ to milk most out of typical summer wind slop.

    check out Al's Fishcuit. they're all worth a pretty penny but if you got the cash go for it.

    Fishcuit

    I have a 5'10" fishcuit. I like the board and the shape, but I think that CI does not glass their boards enough. It is super thin glass so you have to be very careful with the boards. I would have bought a different brand with similar shape but thicker glass If I had the chance. The board does fly across the summer mushburgers though.

    CI does not do glassing in-house.


    They utilize multiple glassers, including Moonlight Glassing in SD (where they glass them so well they are almost bullet proof). It all depends on which glasser they used, if it's a custom you can request which glasser if your willing to wait and/or pay for it.
    If your going to buy one off the rack, take the time to see which glassing shop was used if that's your concern.

    Go with the fishcuit if you want a board for a smaller day but still ridable in bigger days. The only thing is that when its dumpy it cant really handle it as well because it has no rocker.
