Hi ! Great review !
I was thinking of getting that Christenson Fish for summer conditions on the South West coast in France (Basque country)
I'm 143 pounds / 5'8" height.
I have a 5'8" dumpster diver ( 29 liters. ) for small waves at the moment. For my skill level, I would say a good intermediate.
I hesitate for the size, do you think that 5'8" would suit my weight and skill level ? What is your advice for that Christenson fish ?
Thank you !

@Sebastien Riso volume is alot at intermediate and beginner levels. the 5'6 is around 31/32 litres i would say. 5'4 is around 28.5/29. I think youd be safe on either of those. I got mine in the 5'4 bc i knew it was gonna be a board that made me want to surf more and better, and youre gonna keep it for a really really long time. its gorgeous!

Or do you think I'd better go for a 5'6" ?

How about re-potting that plant on the right. It needs more dirt... Unless it's plastic.

Hi! I was thinking of getting the FISH in 5'8 (I'm 6ft tall and weigh 165 lbs). How performant would this board be for me in slightly bigger waves(Let's say 5ft-6ft tall waves...) and how good would it be for me overall? I'm an experienced surfer and been lately riding a 6'0 shortboard 27 liters. Thank you!

this is a classic looking fish! id love to see some footage of it? Got any? I'm a twin fin fish'oholic!!!! the speed and drive of a good fish is something that I can never seem to get from my proper shortboards.

Hi guys, I’m 19 and have been surfing seriously for 3 and a half years. I'm 6 ft 185 pounds. The type of surfer than I am is intermediate. I can surf well, but I need something to ride, I cant ride or pick up smaller waves, I need a larger wave for me to go on and ride, also I don't necessarily "cut" well, my style is more of just carving and enjoying a wave. I'm not explosive at all or an "advanced" surfer. I came upon this video and think this board is really rad. Would this be the right type for me?

Hey! Thanks a lot for the reply! I learned how to surf on a 7’2” Pesce Gunner. However I’ve been surfing a 6’7” Campbell tri-fin surfboard for the past 2 years.

A Fish is a great style of board to surf at your skill level and will continue to be a great board as you advance. The Christenson Fish is one of the most well-made Fish on the market and definitely a board to enjoy and be proud of. What boards have you been surfing? The Fish paddles really well but I can help get the sizing dialed in if I know what you are currently surfing. All the best, Ashlon

Hey dude, great review as always... I surf a 7'6" flat tracker and looking at one of these as an alternate. I'm 5'11 and 185 Pounds, intermediate surfer and this ones mainly for beach breaks... cheers

Hello Andrew, Glad to hear you are stoked on Christenson Surfboard. I see you inquired about a 6'4 on www.REALwatersports.com. We have a 6'4 in stock right now and would gladly send a shipping quote. Can you please email REALpro@REALwatersports.com with your address and everything you would like to order? We can send you an accurate shipping quote with this info. As for sizing, the 6'4 is a big board for you but will paddle nearly as well as your Flat Tracker. If you want to duck dive with this board and surf more powerful waves you should consider sizing down to the 6'0 but if ease of use and a high wave count is the name of the game, by all means, go with the 6'4. Cheers - Ashlon

Hi. What volume do you think the 6’0 is please?
REAL Watersports
REAL Watersports - 2 years ago
We can't say 100% as they vary but the 6'0 is ~40L. If you have a desired volume we can definitely set you up with the dims to closely match it. Give us a call (252)987-6000 or write REALpro@REALwatersports.com

Hi Team, I'm a hair under 6foot, 71kg (156 pounds) lean and athletic, surfing bondi beach Sydney, is there are particular size that would suit my body/surf conditions? Thanks

Hey Josh, Thanks for the extra info. Although the Christenson Fish is a timeless shape that even pro's love to ride, it is easy to surf and would be a great call if you size it right. If you want to plan ahead and get something you can grow with, go with a 5'10, if you want something easy to surf now but you may grow out of as you progress, go with a 6'0.

I've just started a couple of months ago but I'm out there all the time, I'm riding a 6"6 foamie and I'd say SILVER LEVEL 1, so catching unbroken waves and veering left and right. So this will be my first proper board. If you think this board is too advanced feel free to let me know

Hey man, cool review ! I do have this baby in 5'8 and love it, still a twin so the more relax and smooth you surf it the better it will ride I found compared to a shortboard ! I was looking at getting a puddle jumper for small mush wave but a bit scared they will overlap even though i tend to find that the christenson works better in clean condition.

However saying this, you could get a custom, keep the design and adapt the dims and you ll still be stoked. The dims of mine were not aimed towards overhead surf (steep beach break  waves i mean not the Bali perfect type of waves)

Mathieu Popey thanks that answers my question. I'll go with a HPSB instead
Mathieu Revel

saying this on flat face waves the board can go extremely fast and turn on a dim.
Mathieu Revel

hummm i don't take this board for overhead surf, i sold my rocket and got the channel island fever in 6'2 which i use in the 2foot+ 4-5 foot, I use the Christenson for 1-3 foot, glassy condition/fat waves, in 5'8 i found that when the wave are bigger and when they are, where i surf they get steep and the board doesn't get in the wave early enough to be comfortable in the drop - Mine is 5'8 21 11/16

How big of a wave have you taken the 5'8 fish? Was thinking of getting this for over head waves.

Since you will be surfing the Puddle Jumper in smaller surf you should add a few liters for extra paddle power and glide in small waves.
Mathieu Revel
Mathieu Revel - 3 years ago
Actually, I surf the rocket V3 in 6'1 35L (i m 185pounds, 6'1 height), you reckon the puddle jumper should be ridden same volume (volume more compacted then) or higher volume than my V3 anyway ? I know it s not about the Christenson but would be great to have your opinion/feel. Cheers!

Thanks for the quick reply mate, really appreciate it :)

They are different boards for sure, The Puddle Jumper will handle small mush better and it surfs more like a performance shortboard than your Fish. Cheers - Ashlon

can it handle beach breaks fast waves? looks amazing .°

Really good for a fish. Christenson's Fish bottom shape creates lots of lift that makes it easy to keep a highline and build speed even when surfing backside. Cheers - Ashlon

Hey Caro, it works well in fast waves. We are located on Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It's a very fast, barreling beach break, we've tested the Fish here and thoroughly enjoy it. They are super fast, hold well and paddle great. Shop our inventory here: http://www.realwatersports.com/surfing/surfboards/christenson/fish
