The Lost Puddle Fish board is very fun in 1-3 waves. It’s fast, ultra responsive, and it has the traction I like in small waves.
When we I started testing this board for this review the waves were really small, (1-2) and I needed motivation to get out there and surf. We had a 3 week dry spell for waves and this little 5’2″ Puddle Fish made it fun and manageable.
As the waves picked up I continued to ride it in 3-4 surf just to see how it could handle a little size and to my surprise it went good. Most of the time Fish type boards like this for me have a tendency to slide out and be a bit unpredictable in turns. This board has great traction and control because of the tail design along with the release channel.
I also enjoyed this board in the Carbon Wrap technology. The EPS foam core has good buoyancy for paddling and is very lively under foot. The flex characteristics in the Carbon Wrap Technology is spot on for small wave boards and I am a huge fan.
Get yourself a Puddle Fish for the small meager days to keep you sessions fun. Cheers!!!
