Over 20 years ago I made the first Moby. I had ridden fishes in the early 70’s. I wanted to revisit the glide and speed of a fish. The first Moby I built, 1999, was 7’10 22.5 3.1. Volume? No idea. No matter.

It did the job in smaller surf and I rode it on some bigger days. I was quite happy with it. It made the cut on the 2 or 3 board quiver I kept in the back of my truck.

In 2005 I made my first 4 fin Moby. I really liked the feel of this ride. I had ridden it in surf up to approximately 5 foot. One day I thought the surf was pretty small, so I took my Moby down to Blacks. Nothing else. I was very fortunate to have a key. When I got to the bottom of the road, the surf looked as I thought it would. Pretty small but clean. I put on my wetsuit, pulled the Moby out of the back of my truck, closed the hatch. I looked out at the lineup and did a double take. A solid 6-foot set. Fu#k! Well, it was the only board I had with me, so off I went.

My first wave, I was trippen, because I thought I would really have to pull back on the reigns. No. The board took off like a bat out of hell. It had no top end. After a few more waves, I was completely sold on this design and the versatility it had.

It’s been very popular, some of my good friends had them. What was interesting, their sons, some of the best LJ reef surfers, tried them and didn’t want to give them back. They ordered duplicates. Not smaller, leaner versions. The same boards. They actually rode them on the bigger days.

Because of it’s size, it is a great board for beginners and is a great alternative to a longboard. As it turns out, it’s good for all ranges of ability and surf. The entry rocker is relaxed which helps with the paddle. The exit rocker is on the average plus side which helps with turning and fits into the waves better. The fuller outline provides lots of surface area: glide and speed. The rails are fuller but somewhat angular with a lower apex providing lift and control.

I were relegated to one board, this would be it. Fun.

    I was a little worried when Rusty recommended less volume than what I had in mind……turns out the guy knows what he’s doing : ) This board is so easy to paddle, fast, and gets into tiny garbage waves easier than my longboards. Fun and playful on those same sloppy, small windswell waves. I haven’t had it out in good conditions yet, but I anticipate good things. So far, it makes bad conditions 200% more fun, which is cool.

    I bought 12 years ago a Moby Fish; changed dimension to 7´6 22.00 3.00 55 litres. And still now is the best surfboard I´ve ever bought. Now I´m 53 years old and I ve bought many other surfboards. But I still grab my old Moby Fish and have a blast

    7'0 Moby Fish

    7’0 Moby Fish is my favorite board post hip replacement surgery. That thing planes so well. And it goes on rail. It proper rips - which I never expected from such a big fish. Even when I’m ready for shorter boards, I don't think I will switch. I've ridden it in double overhead Razors and 1 ft Scripps. It rips in both. Quiver Killer. Thanks again.

    I ordered a custom model of this board and I can honestly say that it is the most fun I have ever had on a surfboard. This board will catch any wave that comes your way. It surfs like a dream! This board turns and cruises effortlessly down the line. The quad fins are perfect and allow for so much speed and control. I would highly recommend this board to anyone of any skill level and in any condition.
