Kickstarter Update: A Closer Look at the Phish

Willy Cole Explains the Phish

We want to thank all of our salty supporters for helping us make the Phish a reality!  Here's a little summary/update to share with all of your friends and family!

Whether you’re an experienced surfer, a novice bodyboarder, or someone who just likes to play in the waves, there’s something about the power of the ocean that fascinates us all. For years, people have been trying to harness the waves to their riding potential, and the sleekest, most compact method of shredding may just have been released.

Handboarding is bodysurfing with a board attached to one hand, and these handboards enhance the bodysurfing experience to an extreme degree by adding lift and length to the ride. Not only is bodysurfing a great way to tone the arms, legs and core, it’s also a fun, easy activity that the whole family can enjoy. The Phish allows ocean-lovers of all ages and abilities to experience an unforgettable, high-performance, yet relaxed bodysurfing ride.

With round rails and a more narrow build than its “Wedge” model cousin, the Phish is crafted perfectly for exceptional speed down the line and optimal propulsion, and performs best in shore break. The Phish’s expanded polystyrene core increases the board’s lightness, and adds buoyancy to the board, meaning more lift and higher shred capabilities out in the lineup.

If you're confused as to how the Phish differs from any previous handboards, just consult WIlly Cole's video tutorial and his review of the Phish Handboard.

The Phish is currently only available on Kickstarter, and the campaign has made over $16,000 with 5 days left for supporters to contribute.  However, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding platform.  Unless 21k is made in 21 days, the Phish will not come alive.

Please join our community of stoked individuals and support the evolution of wave riding.
