It all started with the fish when the innovative shapers and board builders out there decided to revisit the past for some inspiration. In doing so they brought back some lost skills such as resin tints and hand foiled fins.The Fish Fry has been a place for these fine craftsmen to showcase their skills. We have seen some amazing boards as shapers have pushed the boundaries over the last few years. As this new look at the fish has evolved to its many forms, it has influenced other shapes and designs along the way.This has spawned a renewed interest in other board forms by this same group and a wider following.Notably the Mini Simmons, Hulls, old school Logs and Pigs. It is pleasing to note that there are an increasing number of people building their own boards as well.All of this is to be applauded and celebrated as a positive for surfing.So it is only natural that these shapers and board builders continue to share their skills with us and include these other shapes at the Fish Fry.It has truly become a melting pot of ideas for like minded people.

Tyler , John and Morgan drop in for the fry





It was great to see Tyler Warren , John Smart and Morgan Maassen turn up for the Fish Fry . They are over here filming Tyler surfing various boards and spent the whole day chasing waves. They had with them a couple of Mandala Quads and Josh Hall fishes as well. Tyler also spent a fair bit of time on a hollow Alaia Tom Wegener has been working on.
