Surftech Mark Richards Flying Fish Surfboard
Fly like a bird with the nimbleness of a fish.
A beach-bound upbringing by his Aussie folks is what made Mark Richards a four-time surfing champion and legendary shaper. The Mark Richards Flying Fish Surfboard blends his most popular and aggressive fish shape cut around a Tuflite core for high-speed assaults in small(ish) surf. Low-entry rocker in the full nose, single-to-double concave that runs into a V-spine, and a thruster set-up under the pulled-in swallow tail is what makes this floaty Epoxy board the number-one choice for aggressive surfers looking for the ideal blend of performance and durability.
- Durable Tuflite EPS (fused-cell) core helps eliminate the possibility of water absorption if you crack the epoxy coating

Got the 7'6" Mark Richards Flying Fish as the little pistol to my quiver and it's a beautiful thing. I only get to surf when gale force ENE winds bring waves to the western shores of Lake Superior, so I'm stoked whenever winds are up, but this board is a thing to behold... stable and easily maneuverable in unpredictable waves, this guy knows how to have a good time. Plus it was a STEAL and shipped for free in a few days. Win win win win win.

this board is super long and skinny for a fish, and rides nothing like a fish. It turns like a fun board, has more stability with thrusters instead of a two fin fish set up. I don't like the way it rides on rail and its too much of a log for my liking. Plus epoxy is a wreck to fix, expensive and looks ugly when fixed.
