McNeill RTT is my fave. Really high performance for a fish outline. It surfs well with uprights or keels.

You mean, other than my own.....? trout


I have a 56 Pavel keel that is super fun. A 58 Mackie new style side cut thats a riot, and I wish i kept a KG twinzer made by Mabile.

I always liked the look of Tomo original twins, although I would hardly call them fish

Ive has em all and theyre like woman . Each has its own charm and ecstatic qualities . Currently like my Burch squits In lined up chest high plus with a pocket clean groomed groundswell .
I like my Burch Cuttlefish for peakier A frames and it also works well backside in fast tubes as it has a little more rocker and its lighter and longer and narrower . Stretch quadfish for daily driver awesomeness .

Go see muzza bourton in currumbin if youre on the goldy. He will spend the time messing with the boards on the computer, measuring in detail your old boards, and showing you boards hes recently made. 2 week turnaround and a nice discount if you pay cash

He can make it all including twins and fishes and is very experimental with fins & constructions. Plus he is easy to deal with and one of the nicest guys ever

Hes a legend and we always have a good yarn or a fun surf.

Dick Van is in his 80s. He shapes all sorts of craft. He isnt into specific dims. He isnt into closed minds. He told me something along the lines of if you see a board and tell yourself that you cant ride it, well you are right. Basically a closed mind leads to a closed experience. He does not give one rip about liters etc. if that line of thought and feeling suits you, his boards may suit you. If not.... if it is about the computer and liters well then you have lots of other options. His boards are for some. Not for others.

Any one have experience w/ the FCD fish? I had one I bought used a few years ago but ended up selling it after a few sessions b/c it had lok-box & the keels it came w/ were too small & I couldnt find a replacement set. From what I could tell, it was a good board & I liked the outline, rails, & rocker profile. But Im in the market for a new fish now & I think it would be a good option.
Any feedback on these?

I saw this one in store as well, looks like a high performance twin, good looking board ! I have a CV2 from gary mcneil, really nice board ! love it. I think the RTT has the same DNA, not sure it s worth buying both. Anyone owing both ?
