The Mick Fanning Catfish is one of two new boards to be added to the MF Softboards range in 2020 (the other is the MF Softboards Super Soft).
The MF Catfish is another high performance softboard and according to MF Softboards it’s “fast and super fun….Inspired by the speed and flow of boards from the experimental 1970’s where there were no rules!”
This hybrid design has a slightly decreased nose area when compared to a standard keel or quad fish, the bottom is designed to increase water flow under the front foot and then release it with ease through the fins and tail. The result is fast acceleration with drive out of turns.
This design of the Mick Fanning Catfish is said to be a response to those wanting a softboard in the quiver that will surf in a more diverse range of conditions.
- With a medium to low rocker the Cat Fish paddles well catches waves easily and generates speed with minimal effort.
- This hybrid design has a slightly decreased nose area when compared to a standard keel or quad fish.
