The Old School Fish – South Coast Surfboards

Bringing back the classics with modern invitation. A true old school twin keel fish. Where most
twins from the 80s were skatey and twitchy this board brings a calm smooth style to your
favorite reef or point. The wide parallel template gives you glide and drive off the bottom, while
the deep fish tail provides an anchor to draw big heavy carves back from the shoulder. A
modern single concave with a little double concave relief between the fins keeps this board from
getting sticky on rail and provides that extra bit of freedom when drawing your line mid face. If
you enjoy high speed open face turns and classic style do yourself a favor and snag one before
they’re gone.

Features a strong, light-weight and water-resistant core with dual (x2) maple-ply wood stringers and high density bottom to make it the stiffest most durable Beater ever made!

South Coast + The Firefighter Demolition Derby

This year South Coast was asked to be a sponsor for San Diego Fire Station #35’s Demolition Derby car.  It was benefitting a great cause, The Burn Institute, so how could we say no? We  put them in touch with a few of our vendors. Quiksilver and JM Sales & Service also agreed to sponsor the car! The Annual event was held during the opening weekend of the San Diego County Fair and was part of the Fire and Safety Expo.

Here are a few shots from the event! PC: Heather Shields
