Whoa, that looks fun. Nice and thin. I doubt I could paddle it, but imagine she goes once up and planing.

She's short but kinda wide and plump. Paddles me ok at 190lbs.

i haven't surfed too often under 6' but this 5'9 was a lot of fun. great job CD! now make me one!
fast and responsive, yes, also holds power through turns really well, paddles and catches waves with relative ease.

and this isn't your first time anymore.

Some of you remember the blue fish I did earlier in this thread last year. I surfed it quite a bit and it was fun, mostly because I had built it, not because it was a well built board :). Anyways, I got the itch to change it so about a month ago I stripped the fiberglass and reshaped it. Tried my hand at a resin swirl rather than just the resin tint I did last time. Also foiled fins out of cedar. Fun experience for sure.

Got to take the fish out this weekend... I had a blast. Spent the first morning on it struggling a little because I hadn't been out in a couple of months. After an hour or so I started to dial it in a little. Very fast, much more responsive than it was before. Noticed a huge difference in the fins. Had some smaller glass on keels before and now I have 9" X 5" Keels. I was worried they would be too big but they felt great and held really well it some larger surf last night. All in all I'm super happy with it.

Thanks Ceedog, have you been riding your fish much? (when there's been surf that is) :)
