Greetings, Shredderz! One of the best parts about writing this humble blog is speaking to other people who share my passion for surfboards. After I wrote up a rad 6’0″ Steve Lis fish, a bunch of folks sent me photos of their own Lis boards. I figured I’d collect all the Steve Lis submissions and combine it into one giant post. You’d think there would be more photos of Lis’ beautiful creations available online, but either way I’m happy to fight the good fight. Anyway, enough from me: keep scrolling for a motherlode of Steve Lis fish pics.
Thanks to @nilusism for the shots of this rad duo of Steve Lis fish. The twin fin is a 5’10” and the quad fin is a 6’6″. Check out the photo of the board’s owner taking it for a drive during a proper winter swell at Rincon. Surfing photo is by Brent Flaaten.
Next we have some shots from Mike at 2 Bruddahs Ding Repair. Mike has fixed up more than a few Steve Lis fish, and he was kind enough to share the pics you see here. I absolutely love the British Racing Green colored quad fin fish. It’s 6’7″ and I’m told it handles like a dream.
Here’s an insane 70s Steve Lis fish, courtesy of Josh of JAW Retro Surfboards. Josh hand shapes boards under his own label, so check out his boards when you get a chance. This Seventies board has some insane details, including a stringer that only goes 3/4 of the way down the board, which I’m assuming adds some extra flex to the tail. Check out the fluted wings in the photo above, too. I think the Choice board in the photos is actually a Rich Pavel, but it’s got a Steve Lis laminate on the bottom.
Here’s a rad little 5’5″ Steve Lis fish that was sold on Craigslist a while back. Love the neon!
Andrew Smith sent me pics of this smokin’ 5’10” quad fin fish, and I’ve been admiring them ever since. Andrew not only has some rad boards, he wrote a great article in the Surfer’s Path about Skip Frye’s famed big boards. Cher Pendarvis of Pendoflex wrote up a review of the article here.
Gregoire sent me pics of his 6’6″ twin fin fish, and I’m thrilled to share them with some more folks. I love the contrast between the minimalist, ultra clean deck, and then the bottom, which is filled with the various little laminates and details you’d expect from a Steve Lis fish. The neutral color is really rad, too.
Last but certainly not least, thanks to @sverrelypotted for photos of this colorful Steve Lis twin fin. This looks like a longer board to me, but I’m not sure of the dimensions. Either way it looks like a blast to surf.
