english fish... where are the chips

These shots come to us from North Devon, UK. (Chris Preston of the Adventures in Trim blog and frequent Drift contributor). The board is a 5'10" Gulfstream (local north devon shaper) that was from a fish template of Jimmy Blears. Chris informed me that Jimmy Blears beat David Nuuhiwa on a fish in the 1972 World Title. Thanks for the info, hope the facts are accurate.

Much props must be paid to Andrew Kidman's filming of Derek at J-bay on a his Skip Frye fish n Litmus. This film section has obviously had a major impact on the resurgence of the fish platform.

This year's NY Fish Fry is on! Scheduled for the weekend of May 15th. This is the 4th year running and the tradition of the weekend after Mothers day has stuck!
The 15th or 16th will be chosen a couple days out to take advantage of optimum weather and surf.
Check back here regularly for updates. Already getting news about some west coast shapers making the trip out. There will be dozens of boards to ride as in years past. Here's some notables that will be there for sure:

Steve Pendarvis "Pendoflex"
Josh Hall keels and fish simmons
Christenson C-Hawk twinny
Griffin Mod Fish
Hydrodynamica test pilot series Mini simmons
Rainbow / Pavel speed dialer and creekfish
Wegener alaia
