The is an extremely light race board, that is a pleasure to lift on and off the car roof.
The bottom is a planning hull hybrid and is able to paddle in all conditions. The planning hull rides on top of the water rather than parting it. This makes for a very fast get up and go higher max sprint speeds. "Like skipping a stone" Blackfish likes to sprint off the line. If you paddle mostly in the ocean or a flat water area that gets changing seasons this is the board.
