    Default Rocket Fish

    I searched it and i couldn't find any answers already in the forum. SO i'm looking for some good opinions on the board if you've ridden one, and i kinda have an idea of what the purpose of the fish and wingers, but I'm sure someone will have a better idea then me(:

    i have rode both, and have the dude cruise. The zap is a better board and shape in IMO it has a more pulled in nose(less blunt) making it easier to maneuver, and the 2 wing fins allow the board to be wider=more float, and you cant deny that board^^^ looks sexy!

    oh the purpose of a fish.... A fish is short and wide, making it fast, plane out far and great for liners . The shortened length also makes it more maneuverable esp for big wraps.

    Maybe thats cause everyone was giving you such high expectations. Before i rode it i saw people riding it and it looked like complete shit (Not the board just the shape and how it rode). Then i tried one out and it was sick.
