[ Classic Fish ]
Classic Fish was pioneered by Steve Lis and Jeff Ching in San
Diego at Ocean Beach and the Sunset Cliffs. They are designed for a
wide variety of conditions performing well in small and marginal
waves and quality waves. Classic Fish are a relatively short
surfboard with a full nose, noticeably parallel outline with a deep
cut swallow. The subtle profile - foil carries volume throughout.
Bottom contours may be convex or concave although the convex tri
plane to panel vee is most common. Rails are low and moderately full.
Keel twin fins are traditional. The significant surface area and
volume in a Classic Fish offer excellent performance opportunities in
small or marginal waves. Speed, performance, and paddling make
Classic Fish a very attractive and intriguing design. Design features
