The Catfish is a modernized classic fish designed to be fast, fun and user friendly.
Low rocker and more volume for catching waves with ease and gliding across flat sections.
Wide point forward for drive with a slightly pulled in nose for increased maneuverability and tighter turn radius.
A subtle wing in the outline keeps width between the feet for carrying speed while simultaneously creating a pivot point to shorten the rail line which loosens up the board and gives it more release through turns. The wing also has the effect of pulling the tail in which eliminates that wide tail sticky feel (fish boards can often have) without compromising drive. Effectively it loosens up the board while at the same time giving the rider more control.
The Catfish does not have the traditional beak nose which gives it a modern performance look and feel.
It has a flatter deck with slightly pulled down rail which hides volume and increases sensitivity.
The bottom is designed to be user friendly: vee in the nose to a single concave through the center to spiral vee out the tail for a combination of speed, control and easy rail to rail transitions.
The Catfish comes with a split keel fin setup. Originally developed by Rich Pavel and coined the “Speed Dialer,” the split keel gives fish style boards a performance boost. The design is essentially a traditional keel style fin split in two. Essentially turning the keel twin into a quad set with the same fin area as the original Keel. Positive drive and fluidity are key characteristics, but these fins also allow for quick release, speed through turns, and easier backhand surfing than a traditional keel fin.
