On a recent star-studded trip for Snapt 4’s epic new surf film set to release later next year, Zeke Lau was eyeing a fellow CI teamriders’ FishBeard. To that point, he’d never tried one so after bagging plenty of A-plus clips for the film project he asked Parker Coffin if he could give his 5’7” x 19 x 2 3/8” a spin.
Although there’s a bit of a gap in the dims they would each typically run, Zeke—who is 6’1” and 190 lbs—was still up for trying it even though Parker is 5’7” ad 160 lbs.
“I ride my FishBeards a tad longer than what I think the average person typically does,” explained Parker. “I just like that feeling of the longer rail because I am usually riding it when I feel like doing a bit more drawn out lines. So I think that helped lessen that jump for Zeke, but he did really well for a board that is easily a few inches too small for him. Didn’t seem to be an issue though, the smile on his face said it all.”
