I have a refurbished Bing shaped by Dan Bendickson on my wall. We miss him. Tomorrow I’m gonna run out to ET and score one of yours. I look forward to it.

Subject: Love and my new 5’10”!
Mike – Quick note to let you know I surfed my new fish this morning
and fell in love with your boards all over again.
El Porto looked fun and rideable at 6:15, but was swamped out by
7:30ish. Surf was soft, waist high + with a few larger sets here and
there but the tide came up quickly.
Still, I got on it early and knew the fish would be the right board
for the day. I was having a blast catching even the mushiest of waves
and riding some of them all the way into the sand while most everyone
else paddled for outside and inside sets with great futility only to
come up empty on their chippy, high-performance shortboards. Me?
Smile from ear-to-ear and very little wait time between waves. I left
the water tired…most others left frustrated.
Also, I should mention: the extra hint of length on the 5’10 feels
great to me. Perhaps its my imagination, but it feels like the rails
aren’t quite as thick as on the 5’9″ and somehow felt in better
control, esp. during turns. Overall, this balance worked great for me
this morning. Looking forward to pushing it in juicier waves.
What more can I say? I love my Zippi Fish!
