The REAL Deal

The Christenson Long Phish is a stretched out, blazingly fast cousin to the Christenson Fish. The Long Phish excels in a wide range of surf from knee high to well overhead. The longer, lean lines love to generate linear speed down the line, clearing unmakeable sections and creating fun opportunities for g-force wraps.

What We Like

The Christenson Long Phish is one of the fastest boards we’ve ever surfed. The combination of longer, parallel rails, and twin fin keel set up, make this a drivey, frictionless flyer that loves to cover ground down the line.

Tucked in

We got to surf our 6’10 Long Phish in a wide variety of surf in Cape Hatteras, Puerto Rico and the Maldives, ranging from knee high to well overhead. The dimensions (and amount of foam) of this design are conservative, so it sits low in the water, but still paddles well through it. The efficient, drivey nature of the fish design help the Long Phish create speed in smaller conditions and clear sections in all size surf. The lean rails and foiled tail give it confident hold in larger surf.

What we liked the best about the Christenson Long Phish is it’s easy wave catching ability (the big butt gets pushed in with speed), it’s down the line speed, and it’s ability to handle a wide range of surf conditions with speed, control and confidence. This board craves waves with wide open canvas to draw high speed lines. In fact one of our favorite waves with the Long Phish was Wilderness in Puerto Rico where the performance on this board was absolutely on point in thigh high to head and half high surf.

Insider Info

This is not a sasquatch fish. Most fish in this length range are GIANT blown up versions of shorter fish, so when you scale them up they go XXL in liters/size. The Christenson Long Phish has a leaner foil to it and is meant to ridden longer than your standard fish. It’s not a Sasquatch fish, a whale fish, or an XXL fish.

slim outline

When you think about split tail, keel fin fish, you typically think about them favoring frontside waves. The tapered rails and longer rail line on this board made backside a much easier code to crack, so much so that we felt comfortable on our very first waves. J-Bay backside? Before it wasn’t on our radar. Now? 100%! This board backside on a long, fast point would be insane. We encountered a good bit of frontside waves in Cape Hatteras and the Maldives. On these you can sit really deep because the board gets on rail high up on the wave and just flies down the line making sections that other boards can’t. When you get on your other boards they seem noticeably slower.

back side attack

The Long Phish is all about linear speed. You can get some nice tubes and big, high speed wraps back into the pocket, but it’s not the best choice for vertical snaps in the pocket.

open face

We get questioned a lot about the differences between the Long Phish and the Nautilus. In photos they may look similar, but when laid out side by side, the Nautilus has a narrower nose and tail, with a touch more rocker. This makes the Nautilus a curvier board (more outline curve and bottom curve) which helps it turn more vertically in the pocket, with tighter snaps off the top. The Long Phish has a much straighter, more parallel outline, which creates a faster board down the line.

smooth drop

Later in the season we also got our hands on a 7’10 Long Phish. At this size, the Long Fish doubles as a longboard killer, and smokes all mid lengths with regards to wave count and down the line speed. We surfed this board down to sub knee high with ease, and took it up to softer head high with control.

clear water glide

We used the Captain Fin Company Chris Christenson solid glass keel fins on our Long Phish. These are a great set up for medium weight and above surfers that like to push hard in their turns and prefer a stiffer fin. If you’re looking for a bit more flex, try out the Captain Fin Company Christenson honeycomb keels. These are lighter weight and work best with medium weight and lighter surfers.
