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.

Sure there will be those of you that will say nothing is new. And that may well be true? But there are guys out there that will combine a little from many sources and inspirations and come up with something that is new.The Fish Fry is a great place to see what others are doing and a place to be inspired by their shapes and take on things.Talk to other shapers. Meet new ones and see what they are up to.Take a board for a ride and feel the difference , good or bad.The fish has become a great platform for fun and innovation in a commercialised thruster driven environment. I don't mean to be political , but it is hard not to agree. The fish has gone from being an alternate board to having an influence on many shapers and what they are doing today.
If you have some new ideas that you are trying and would like to share. Send some pics and a few words and turn up on the day if you can. Inspire others.

Thanks Tomo
