A lot of surfboard designs can’t be specifically classified as a “longboard”, “funboard”, “fish”, or “shortboard”. For example, surfers refer to “hybrids” for surfboards that combine the width and tail of a fish, but a design that has similarities to shortboards. This is one of the beautiful aspects of surfboard designs: there is always room for experimentation. Shapers add and remove width, length, rocker, change the fin set up, the tail or nose shapes, and surfers end up with a different response and feel on the waves.
