I have the smaller one. I rode it the last few days. It is a great board and very well made. I know someone who rode the bigger one and said it was great, too. All of their equipment is made with the highest quality.

I say get it!!!!

Enjoy!

I have only ridden the big fish two times, so not much experience with this one.

But the 165 I know....

For my 72kg only, a bit too big/floaty, when really powered - but in "light" conditions things are different even for my light weight !

I've tested numereous different waveboards - but the JN Fish 165 has a really good glide, and the advantage seems to be, that it can pop out on the shoulder easily - so you can get really good aerial off the lips :thumb:

When really powered, it is a bit too big for my lightweight - but otherwise, a great awesome waveboard IMO 8)

Kindly, Peter Frank

I tested a lot of production and custom wave boards. I finally bought the JN Big Fish and 6 month later the Opium. Both boards are beautifully made and ride fantastic. I use the little fish for onshore conditions, powered riding and jumping. The Big fish works a treat in clean sideshore conditions, for unhooked riding and when you need the extra stability in 15ft+ wave. I weight 90kg and ride C-kites.

Hope that helps!
