Mark Richards says,
This is my “Bumble Bee” model. I shaped the first one of these in 1976. It was a twin fin & was inspired by a fish Reno Abellira rode in the Coca cola 2sm contest in Sydney. This board re- ignited my interest in twin fins & the next one I designed was the “Free Ride” twinny in 1977″
Shaped and glassed in California. Part of the Deluxe MR series at Surfy Surfy.

The ESSX Fish.
Designed by Surfy Surfy employee and twin fin enthusiast Eldon H.
Handshaped by our local guru Mike Slingerland.
The ESSX Fish is a modern performance hybrid of the classic Lis Fish.
Eldon is skinny so he needs a skinny fish. He likes nice flowing turns, but surfs with lots of energy.
The rails are thinned out, but not knifey
Single concave bottom to vee off the back.

We like to push these GH Pills on people who surf slushy waves but still like to surf tight and precise. Sure, the tail is 17 1/2″ wide, but combined with GH’s performance shortboard rails and deep double concave Bonzer-esque bottom you can control the speed gathered from the wide tail and use that nice outline curve for some beautiful roundhouse cutbacks.
This one is 5’4″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
It’s got a fancy carbon tail patch.
FCS Fusion system set up for quad or thruster surfing.
