Here’s a one minute snippet of our new 16 minute short film about the newly redeemed and refashioned Postmodern Retroactive Fish. Full video in next slide. It’s all talkin’ and board flippin’ from the shapeshifter’s private room, but we think you’ll enjoy this little fishy’s diatribe almost as much as riding one.

A new twist on a traditional design. Set down squat down or lie down, cuz here’s 16 minutes or so about a surprising adventure that changed Todd’s perspective on combining modern high performance design features with classic fish concepts.

This board combines a modernized, sleeked up retro fish outline with a progressive rocker and one-of-a-kind freaky hull contours. Glide or gouge, float or carve, crouch low with five on the nose, or stand tall and arch the back.

Introducing a new rocker and hull contours to the traditional fish outline. A very deep single concave running from entry through the entire bottom and even off the tail, with inset deep doubles inside the single (we are calling them “sluice-box” caves).

This extreme hull contour creates a water jet effect (we are calling it the “jet stream”) by using gravity and centrifugal force to speed water across and through the entirety of the bottom of the board.

It acts much like the same principles guiding free friction, but allows for the fins to do their job more efficiently with less drag and more drive and a turbulence-smoothing, faster ride than ever before. Perfect for small waves and fish type shapes.

Old world meets future world. Each board can be made with hand done one-of-a-kind resin art by request.

MonstaFish big guy version:

“Gut that fish” – the all new modern retroactive Twin/Quad Fang uses progressive rocker & deep heavy concaves for a board that gets up on plane, and holds a rail through full-speed carves like none before it. I’ve literally gutted the belly of the beast so she has more efficient water flow, making her speedy as all get out with no lack of fast-twitch muscle fiber rail response. Go on, and manhandle the baby. Other features include 80s style flat deck to pack on the liters combined with sloped, downrails and hard edges to knife your corners at zip-stitch top velocity. Nose features a subtle beaky buzzard. 6’6″ x 23 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ 56L

Legacy board description below:

**We also still offer Todd’s more traditional retro fish which incorporates a versatile rocker and hull contours on a traditional fish outline. Utilizing a subtle increase in rocker from nose to tail, and slightly deeper single to double concaves, with a touch less spiral vee running off the tail; this board has quickly become a new favorite for speedy fish enthusiasts who wish to find a new dynamic responsiveness through turns. Old world meets new.

They’re back ’cause they’re fast. This is an updated version of the original “Fish” design. I’ve incorporated a modernized single-to-double concave-to-accelerated spiral vee bottom, and blended it with the original retro outline, rocker, and thickness flow…why? for the enjoyment of hair-raising speed runs. Check out the website to watch streaming video of this twinny fanging its way through the lineup.

Also available with quad setup. By adding another fin over on your rail, you increase the leverage placed on your fins when going into a turn; this equates to more drive and more speed when you put this puppy into drive – a beautiful thing.

Ideal conditions: ankle high to shoulder high weak waves.
Experience: intermediate through advanced
Designed for: super speeding gutless junk
