The MOONFISH is the Flying fish, King fish, Rocket fish all in one.
In the tradition of fish design, with the added advantage of experienced composite engineering and modern design elements, enter The Sunova MOONFISH.

THE MOONFISH FLYS

One of the most high performance fish's on the market..

Bert has always been a lover of high performance surfing, whether it be shortboarding or longboarding.. So with the more retro designs he tries to incorporate as many performance aspects as possible to give the rider the best of both worlds...

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

A high performance fish for small to medium waves..

Wave type ||| size it's working best

Average quality and softer waves..  ||| From just under waist high up to just over head high.

Maneuvers it does best

Re-entries, Tail slides…

Skill level it's best for

Novice to Pro..

Paddle power

Well above average

What you thought of when you designed it?

I wanted to create a fish that a high performance short boarder would enjoy, it ended up that it took 5 versions before we finally got there, so now we have a versatile board that can even pass as an everyday shortboard…

What is possibly compromises on then?

The retro Fish purist will probably say it doesn’t have enough glide and that traditional retro feel…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Fuller nose, clean outline into a wide moontail…

When on rail the board will pull a tight arc, due to its generous outline curve, which resembles other good small wave grovelers except we have cut off the nose and tail, this really reduces the swing weight, so it really feels like it spins on the spot..

Rails

Slightly fuller, tucked edge into tail…

The Rails are the fullest/thickest in our shortboard range in comparison to its volume, the bottom rail has a defined  bevel with a bit more edge up front, the idea being, it’s a small wave board so you want it to skate along on top of the water, the board in general is super loose so the thicker rail makes it a bit more manageable..

Rocker

Medium, slightly flatter…

With this rocker, the board carries into waves really well, keeps its speed over dead sections and catches waves really easy, good carry in cutbacks on softer sections and easy to crack into a tail drift..

Bottom

Single concave..

One problem with really wide tails and boards, its harder to get them on the rail,  issue with a wide tail is the slippery feeling on the rail to rail transition, this is where you can go into an uncontrollable drift when turning under the lip at speed, one rail is engaged, then there is a brief moment where the board is flat before you can get the other rail in..

Deck

Standard

Deck is a fairly standard profile, with the overall board being a little thicker, this carries volume out to the rails in proportion, as well as into the nose and tail.. this volume in general offers a level of comfort when paddling and catching waves, the first few strokes are not spent climbing out of the water..

Fins

5 Fins

For top to bottom surfing the thruster will be the better option, as the waves get a little steeper and faster switch out to the quad to hold a higher more direct line, or if the waves are flatter and more open with little chance of top to bottom surfing, the quad is also an option…

Final Statement

A good high performance Fish for small to medium waves…
