Our retro fish surfboard models are designed to provide a down-the-line approach with a lot of speed, while still remaining functional when going for turns. They exceed on softer waves and offer quite high-performance surf. We recommend using them 3 to 5 inches smaller than your everyday board.
This is our retro quad fin fish model. The main difference from the twin fin fish with a keel fin is that the quad fin has a more agile response to the movements generated by the surfer. The keel fin is more “fixed” because it has a larger surface area. In terms of the outline of this model, compared to the Classic Twin, we tried to bring the volume distribution more towards the back of the board (by reducing the nose area) thus increasing projection when performing maneuvers and turns because it has more flotation right under the surfer’s base. To increase agility, we reduced the width of the tail and added a wing to break up the wider outline.
Surfboards are available in PU (polyurethane foam) and Epoxy (EPS or XPS foam), if you want to understand more about fish surfboards check out our article on how to choose a fish.

Get to know our retro fish (old school fish) and twin fins. All these models are great for drawing classic lines but with a modern feel.
The classic twin fin fish
The classic twin fin fish Classic Twin and Curvalicious, were developed to be used with keel fins. They are inspired by the first models of the late and great Steve Lis. The classic fish is very fast and good on weaker waves, the widened tail has a greater space between fins giving the surfer more back foot support while creating drive. The deep swallow is a key feature in the board’s functionality offering more maneuverability as the water flows within it, increasing release.
The flatter tail rocker is great for speed management and flow, but we added a nose rocker to avoid curling in steeper parts of the wave.
The difference between quad and twin retro fish surfboards
The keel fin twin has a more classic surf experience compared to the quad, this is due to the water pressure that flows easier through quad fins than the large area keel fin. That makes the quad more performance-oriented and loser than its keel counterpart.
The Twin keel has fluid speed management through turns, carrying momentum, and generating projection. If you want to learn more about it, read our how to choose a fish surfboard article.
