The Chris Fish is Chris Christenson's best selling surfboard. Timeless. Iconic. Beautiful. A classic.
The Chris Fish has it all; the trim speed, ability to put it on rail, paddle power or just do some great surfing.
And it doesn't just perform; it's such a nice design that you might want to keep it at the sitting room. Maybe your bedroon? Keep it close to you. Enjoy it. Everyday.
This is what Chris has to say about his best design:
“Still probably the most versatile design of all surfboard craft. If you were stranded on an island for the next 10 years and were only allowed one board this would be my recommendation. Tested from Cardiff Reef to Ulu Watu, Waikiki to Pipe, this is a very trustworthy design. Double foil fins with low cant and toe complimented by the twin pin tail allow this board to reach high speeds and insure hold whenever on the rail.”
Christenson suggests you drop 6-8 inches from your shortboard if you are a skilled surfer and fit. Downsize it 2-4 inches from your daily shortboard if you don't surf that often.
Recommended fin set for the Fish by Christenson
The FCS II Christenson Keel Twin fin PG X Large fin set from the FCS Shaper Series. This cracking keel set is designed with plenty of curve in the leading and trailing edge to provide smooth rail to rail transitions. A thicker flat foil gives this set up more grip and drive through turns on bigger open face waves. This Christenson Keel set up gives you all the speed you'd expect but more control and an overall smoother surf. Its suited to any twin fin set up, preferably boards with a wider, thicker tail area.
The Performance Glass (PG) fins are machine cut from layers of solid fiberglass. These fins are stiff, and are widely used by pro level surfers because the integrity of the flex is maintained under immense force, and in the most extreme of conditions and situations. Don't be too scared by this description, some of the kooks here at Boardshop have used them and they do actually work well!
Give them a try! Several team riders have put these twins through their paces and loved them.
