Anybody tried the new North freestyle fish yet? Any comments on weight, flat water - light wind - and small wave performance? Thanks for info -

To add, it's very often a shame that we have all the info and can make a funded decision the new boards are coming along.

So anyone with experience riding the Freestyle Fish: share your experience!

NIY records

I have had no luck finding the album or the song yet so If you come across a downloadable version PM me OK?

I am impatiently waiting for mine right now, it is due Sept 15th or something. Really excited about it.

This video seems to be an early version I think, before the open foot / grip straps which are so special for this board. they are at either end of the board like a little half strap and you can lock in as the rear strap is facing into the board. This gives you a strapless ride but when you want it some air potential
Also comes with plugs for regular straps from the info I have at hand.

Will report as soon as possible, which is not soon enough however, coupled with my new Rebel 10m I will be fairly chipper :thumb: :wink: :P

I saw these pads/straps which are open on the site.
I think this is a great option for semi pros like the most of us, since complete strapless is really tough. And with this it is much easier and so more fun!
