This 5’3” Akila Aipa “Fish” is legit! I had a blast on this board and it is unlike anything I’ve surfed before.
The outline, tail design, and foil shape make this board unique. The foil is sleek and sexy…. it reminds me of a HPSB. Akila calls it “trimming the fat” meaning no unnecessary foam to hinder performance with swing weight.
This board has incredible speed, projection, drive, and flow to maximize performance surfing in small waves. The response time from turn to turn felt effortless and seem to gain speed on rail.
This little board is a good time and I think it shines in 1-4’ surf. I highly recommend it for Intermediate – Pro level surfers.
