The MKII of the Fish Cake from Maluku includes a wing in the tail and 5 fin plugs so that you can ride it as either a thruster or a quad, depending on what you prefer. The wing pulls the tail in providing extra hold giving you a little more confidence when the waves are good. Extra foam under the chest for paddle speed, forgiving rails that will help anyone start to improve their turns and a nice relaxed template mean this would be a great first shortboard for anyone stepping down from a longer mini mal, or for the competent shortboarder looking for extra volume. It’s why the fish is one of the most versatile shorter boards you can think off. Small, gutless waves, lined up walls, hold and drive when it gets a little bigger – it covers the bases while remaining a blast to surf.
