similar to fishes in that they have flatter rocker
and plane quickly, allowing them to catch waves
easily. Traditional style eggs have a single fin and
today's modern design utilizes a 2+1 fin setup
(large center fin with two smaller side fins).
Adding the side bites to the longer center fin helps
the rider perform harder rail turns without the fear
of spinning out, which is an inherent drawback of
the single fin design. Eggs also have more curve in
their outline than fishes which equals better
Like fishes, eggs are usually shorter than 6’0”
which makes them best suited for small surf,
however, the above average surfer can adapt and make
this design work in medium size surf as well.
Because of the added curve in their outline, eggs
have a smoother rail-to-rail transition than a fish
and love carving big round house cutbacks. The egg's
flat rocker and quick planning ability create the
same speed as fishes and are best suited for
intermediate to advanced surfers.
Eggs being wide boards are relatively easy to paddle
and better still they are quick to plane . This
means the board will perform to it's full potential,
even at low speeds (a major advantage in small and
Eggs also have lots of volumn, which means you
can create a lot speed in relatively flat faced,
weak surf. Eggs however tend to lack control,
particularly when the surf gets bigger and more
critical. To compensate for this the tail block has
two wingers that allow for a narrow rounded tail and
thus giving more control.
