THE FISH EXPERIMENT: Surfing A Twin For A Week

Here are 3 things I learned from one week surfing a twin fin fish up here on Sydney’s northern beaches. I enjoy surfing on my fish. It makes me appreciate the fundamentals and emphasise the important techniques which surfing is based on.

Interestingly, I find that it seems to enhance my backhand surfing in particular. Surfing a twin fin can be a joyful experience. It’s challenging, sure, because going from a high performance shortboard with the inherent state of mind that chases bigger, faster and more radical is quite a stark difference to the slower, more intuitive and more flow-like approach required on a fish.

For a 5’5 guy I wonder what size of a fish should I get? I always wanted to try a retro twin…

Thanks again @kalesbrocolli. I went back to a long board to strenghten up my basics. Could you upload a video about surfing the really big boards?

I have an Al Merrick Pod 6’8” 21 3/4 wide3” thick. Is that nearly a Fish? I ride in small waves. I am 73-74kg.

Being struggling with my pop up. Struggling even more to find time due to life pressures like running a business, partner’s illness, etc.
I am 48 yrs old now. Maybe I should goto a long board when I can save up for one.

Sometimes I have “good” days where I am just happy to stand up and ride the wave until it loses power. The struggle days are not worth talking about.
