The Quad Fish by Gordon & Smith is more of a modernized performance style fish, compared to our Traditional Fish. It's a little more responsive, and easier to control. This is what a fish ends up looking like when you add new modern ideas and theories to an old school design. We have pulled in the nose and the tail to add some curve in the outside shape of the board for a little more response and control to pull off maneuvers easier. The 4 fins instead of two seems to increase the performance of the board without losing it's speed. And we also added two slight bumps in the outside lines of the tail, which allows for a more responsive turn without losing too much speed from making the base of the tail narrower. It comes with a gloss and polish finish, and a 4 fin set up with the fin system of your choice: FCS, Future, LOKbox.
