Fourth Weekend Rockstar – Fish Surfboard
Starting with the outline, the weekend rockstar fish surfboard has the look of a fish. A wider nose and pulled in swallow tail, but when you really dissect the Weekend Rockstar’s outline you start to see the secrets. The parallel rails give this fish heaps of forward trajectory and the bullet like tail curves offer great pivot when needed through turns. We have now accentuated the pivot in the tail with a mini hip just in front of the back fin. Fishy aggression in spades is now the order when you are on this thing.
The nose, although wide, has a fast curve for the overall length of the board to make sure there are no issues with bogging rails and bigger turns in weaker waves. The rocker is medium throughout with a slight kick in the tail to keep it lively, and the foil is that of a high performance all-rounder – which in this case was based on the shank. The deck line has been flattened and a slight chine in the rail means we can utilise that volume in paddle and stability whilst keeping that progressive shortboard rail. Any more volume packed into this beauty and it would burst. The key is having all the volume you need, but not so much it becomes novel.
The single concave offers lift and control and the rail shape is that of a performance short board. All in all you have an incredibly fast board that burns through weaker waves and utilises any sections you get with performance lines. It’s easy to catch waves on, it works in anything from knee high to overhead waves and makes general everyday surfing easy.
We have set the fins up as a clustered thruster which means you can use a twin plus trailer Its all about the FCS2 POWER TWIN SET for loads of fishy fun. Or be boring and go for a standard thruster set up in lumpier waves for added control. The FCS2 performer set would be a great start.
