Dimensions: 5'5 x 20 x 2
[completed on March 2013]
This shape is 100% original as I worked with the Surfdesigner software from Atua Core to create a high performance fish for my husband as he likes to compete in the fish division during his day-long surf contest events. I had the strict requirement of a minimum of 15 inch wide at 12 inches from both the nose and the tail to be considered as a fish by the officials. Because I got a bit under those dimensions on the tail, I had to shorten the swallow tail to regain some width. As usual, Vincent wanted a thin board, no volume at all and he made me remove volume until I said : "it is a large short board with a swallow tail!" Performance, performance was the goal. Well, this board looks like it is going to ride like a flying fish!
The artwork is minimalist. Vincent wanted something classic for a fish. He was answered. But man, these designs are very hard to make: the curves of mine got a bit wobbly on some parts. But at the end, I like it as it emphasizes the big-o Mère-Made logo. Vincent better represents the brand well at his next fish contest! Go Hubby!
