Board of the Week: Rocket Fish
The Rocket Fish is designed for smaller waves commonly found in Florida and the East Coast. It’s fuller nose-to-midsection allows it to be maneuvered off the front foot much more effectively than a traditional shape can. An added ½” of width in the midsection makes this board wider than most it’s size. This increases speed and overall travel distance when side-slipping out to waves. As always, it’s built with 2 layers of carbon fiber (1 top + 1 bottom) for added strength and stiffness. The double wing fish tail makes riding off the back foot a dream, enabling the rider to dramatically pivot and turn off the back foot without sinking the tail too deep in the water, resulting in a loss of speed. Technical tricks spin faster and more evenly because of it’s slightly circular-than-normal shape.
