The Fish is sometimes considered a mini-malibu alternative because of its ideal behavior in small conditions without however the handling constraints of an 8 ′
Its tight rocker makes it easy to row, it offers little resistance however whether you have opted for a volume adapted to your size and / or your level. An easy start, stability optimized by its wide tail and by its “swallow tail” shape, you are ready for wide turns and a rapid increase in speed.
The Egg has a generous rocker, a “banana” shape which will push a little more water (a little less easy than the fish with the oar). Once launched, its thinner tail makes it very responsive for the frontside / backside passage. Ideal in hollow waves, it will be perfect even for big waves, more generous in volume than a shortboard , it is more accessible and represents a good compromise to discover the sensations.
