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.

    7'0 Moby Fish

    Just a quick few lines to thank you for the board and service. The board looked amazing out of the box. I have had the opportunity to surf it from ankle high to 2 ft overhead. Everything I read or heard about how versatile and great the model is falls short. The board has my head spinning, I cannot decide how to surf it. Off the tail and turn or feet forward and styling and cruising... feels awesome to surf it either way. Truly the quiver killer, and my new trusty companion for quick escapades, when I can't take any other boards. Actually, I haven't surfed any other board in 6 weeks. The Moby keeps calling me back. I think I took Rusty's story about the first Moby fish he made to heart and are unconsciously trying to replicate the vibe. I just put the Moby in the back of the truck and go to beach when I feel I want to surf, without worrying too much about specific conditions. Keep having a good time. Feels uncomplicated. Like surfing should feel.

    The best board I've ever owned

    I've owned a wide assortment of boards over a couple of decades of surfing, some custom made, a few right off the rack in the surf shop. I've been looking for a board that can provide a bit of glide to get in early but still perform well on the wave, the combination of float and performance. Rusty convinced me the Moby Fish was the board I needed. He built the board to deliver exactly what I wanted and, well, it's by far and away the best board I've ever owned. Every time out it just keeps getting better. Thank you to Rusty and the crew!

    Moby Fish

    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.

    Moby Fish

    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.
