On the Water
The Fish 5’2’’ is a fun, snappy little monster that pushes a ton of
versatile performance into a compact shape. The lightweight
construction feels reactive underfoot and this Fish is capable of fast,
tight radius turns or drawn out carves depending on where you weighting
is. The slight concave in the deck smooths out chop well and despite
its short length this board drives upwind easily on the large side
fins. Excellent choice of board for any surf enthusiast that want a
compact travel companion to hit the surf with. It rides bigger than
size and can handle small to mid-size waves with playful ease.
Naish offers a full range of surf shapes to suit every style and wave condition on the planet. The new construction for the 2009 wave line features full EPS core with a wood stringer, and full PVC wrap sandwich construction. The wood deck provides added durability and an awesome look.
Footbed and Strap System
Each model in the Naish Surf line comes equipped with high quality EVA molded deck pads and two surf footstraps. Multiple footstrap settings let the rider adjust to preferred stance and turning performance. Back foot positioning can change the turning characteristics and stability of the quad-fin boards with access to snappier, tighter radius turns as the back foot is moved aft of the larger side fins.
