Ran the tape measure over the fish today after I bought a 5'8 hybrid bag that the board only just got into.
Bloke said board was 5'8 x 21 x 2.25.
Board is 5'9 x 21.25 x I reckon 2.75.
I don't really give a shit because I love it. Would like to know the truth just in case it gets stolen or damaged in a random car accident. (Not a pessimist, it lives in my car and I'm on the road shedloads. )

Very rarely does one complain about getting more foam than less. That happened with a board of mine once, 2 3/4 ended up pushing 3 inches on the calipers. *Still love it.

* not that flash a surfer just ok. Never met the shaper, think it was just a fuschia up or he couldn't be bothered mowing the foam.

Bought this board second-hand off ebay last week: http://sunhousesurf.tumblr.com/post/972 ... yback-1050

My first fish, my first twinnie. Bloody terrified that I'm just going to massively kook out. Can't wait, though. Could be swell this Sunday :-)(

On the advice of someone who I will hold solely responsible for any failures I have on this board (he knows who he is), I got a set of Akila Aipas.

But seriously, the description of the aipas sounds right, given that the board is meant to be more high-performance than a groveller, and I thought the height might help ease me into the twin fin experience. Haven't had a chance to surf it yet.

How dare you critique my knowledge on a forum - i've told you before, i know everything about surfing. Ever.

They better work, but if not, it's all Jam71's fault! He raves about those fins.

The aipas are the best set of twin fins for that smoking shred stick staypuft, you ll be stoked.

If not, sell them to Batoes for a small profit & try my second favs: AMT's.

lol. I'd have to talk him into getting a new board first. Shouldn't be hard.

I'll post when I get the chance to take it out. Hopefully this week.

Somehow ended up watching rasta then Asher then Ryan burch in a YouTube binge after seeing FireWire are doing a fish. Fkukked now. Noticed surfblanks do machine shaped fish, short wide but not too thick as well. Double fkukked

I listen to the firewire podcast and got a heads up about this board before it made the website. They seem to lag behind a bit on a lot of their new models.

Soon as I heard about it, I remember telling myself.... wait 12months.... one'll turn up second hand.... 5'9 should do me i reckon, although might not have enough foam in it. 5'11 will be too long.

Great looking boards though.

Yeah I like the look of them. 5'9" is 20 3/8 X 2 9/16. I'm 90kg and while I like them short ( I'm 5'9" ) that might be a bit skinny lol. The surfblanks machined fish are the opposite, a 5'6" is 22" X 2 5/8. Id like somewhere in between. My jd fish was 5'9" X 21 1/2 X 2 3/4. Lot of board and I think I could have went a little narrower and thinner but Josh's boards can have a little extra foam with no drawbacks.

Asher kills it on a keel fish, so good to watch
