Or do you have any recommendation on the board ?

I'm thinking of a fish as well for the same reasons you mentioned. I borrowed a 18 inch wide thruster a few weeks back, tried to surf 2-3 footers and couldn't catch a single wave. Evertime I thought I had one, I'd go to popup and the board sunk down and the wave passed under. Is it really true that a 5'10'' fish...say >22 inches wide > 2 1/2 inches think can catch more waves than a minimal or funboard (say 7-8 footer range same width and thickness though)? If so I'm sold on getting a fish.vodafone wrote:Thanks KS for the reply. Well I really love the mini mal when the waves get down to 1-3 feet as it becomes super hard if not possible to get on my 17.5 wide thruster, I think I will even love the fish more if what you said is true

Thanks for the input. I figured with the shorter length of a fish, there is much less room for error as far as getting your feet into the sweet spot. An inch or 2 too far forward and your nose diving. An inch or 2 too far back and the nose will pop up too much and the wave will pass under you. How is your paddle out and duck diving ability on your new fish? Can you slice right through the waves easily or do you get knocked around some or knocked backwards.vodafone wrote:Hi Bub I just had my 2nd day with the fish, from my 2 days exp. I would say it catches waves way better than a thruster but not as good as a funboard... yet ( I still need time to adjust). One thing to mention is with the shorter length, the board is quite unforgiving in the sweet spot, it is alot harder to catch waves if you accidentally lie an inch back on your board. Oh and you don't need as much pump as a thruster once you get on it.
