I recently got a SP and do NOT connect with the board at all. Way to rear foot bias and I just can't seem to be consistent on it. Needs a new home, but after recently taking out a quad fish I have in my quiver, perhaps something more "fishy" would be better. I have a spitfire and love that board, so would the PN be a little like a cross between a fish and a SF. Or is it too much like a SP that I should stay away?

It catches waves like a fish and surfs like a spitfire.
but be careful - it may overlap a lot with the SF

Hey All, use my Firewire email, [email protected] for emergency issues, not my forum inbox. However, please avoid contacting me directly with questions on choosing a board, just use the glorious forum. Cheers!
yeah any of these new models that shorten up in length AND cut out the deep retro swallow tail, in my opinion, really surf a lot differently than the classic fish design. think of the fish as a board that will draw longer lines off the bottom and have bit more of a gentle flow while the modern day small wave boards are going to be a little more twitchy and will have the ability to be ridden with shorter arcs, an ultimately, more progressive.
Cheers and hope this helps!
Originally posted by barney View PostWow, really? I never could dial in the SP, it is such a rear foot biased board and the deep V made it a little "twitchy" for my liking. So you would say if I have no problems with my SF, I shouldn't have an issue with the PN?
I too had and loved the SP but swapped it for the PN so I could surf more "shortboard-ish" in small waves.
