Name origin: The Barracuda was named as we designed the tail shape from an actual Barracuda fish.
Description: The Barracuda is designed to keep your wave count up and froth levels high. This is a great board to have in your quiver if you're looking for a bit more volume on the lazier days as it catches waves so easily and is also extremely fast. This board is also great if you're looking to drop down surfboard size as it holds a lot of volume for the size of it, you can get the shortboard feel with enough float to keep you catching waves.
Catching wave: With a wide outline shape and a lot of thickness throughout, this board floats you well and glides into waves. It's full nose and added volume underneath the chest makes getting into the smaller waves effortless and allows for an earlier take-off when the waves get bigger.
Manoeuvrability: Fishes are all about width and that doesn't change with this one. The wide tail is what we all know and love about fishes giving it that loose skatey feel. We wanted to keep that traditional style but with a slight tweak. We have rolled the tail edge so it gives that little bit of extra hold, meaning you can push that little bit more and gain more drive without the tail slipping out.

How to look after your new epoxy surfboard
First and foremost make sure the board is always water tight before going in the sea. If any dings crop up just bring into the surf shop and we will fix it for free!
Having a board bag for transport can help alot with preventing dings! Most repairs we do are from accidents that occur outside the water!
Lastly DON'T leave it in the sun or worse in a hot car! When epoxy gets hot it becomes soft and flexible which can lead to dings or even delamination!
If you're ever in doubt contact us, on phone, email, instagram, however you like, and we will give you advice.
