the pescado is the love child of a single fin hull (with super pinched rails, bellied nose contour, almost no rocker) and a tri fin fish. the idea, or at least as i see it, is that it has the best of both worlds. front foot and back foot surfing. surf off your front foot, you get the glide/trim/speed of a hull. surf off your back foot, you get punch and drive through turns and the good old surfability of the thruster set up.
this board is new to me. i picked it up just over a month ago in preparation for our costa rica trip. i surfed it a few days before hand in mushy waist to stomach wind swell. although not the best way to judge it, it was a blast. had all the qualities i had hoped for, namely super fun release off of exaggerated bottom turns. we arrived in costa rica and were meet with some considerable swell. i was a bit worried that i was under-gunned and the width was going to be an issue. it worked great. board paddled great. turned great. and fast as hell off the front foot. surfs well vertically (or as vertical as i am able take it) and laterally.
you can see how pinched the rail are in this pic. i really like it. because of my larger size i am accustomed to boards with fuller, boxier rails. very different and responsive. you can also see the s deck. it came with a set of MR twinzers but i am riding it with a set of future am2's and i think i prefer it that way. fun board.
