the fish is going to have more surface area.

the weight of the two boards is going to be so close considering the team has less mass, but it does have a PBT bottom and the fish does not. PBT is heavier than the alternative.

Thanks Thane! What does PBT do anyway?

PBT is the shiny sheet that they put on the boards. Almost all boards have it on the top, but some have it on the top and bottom. From what I understand, it's a little more difficult to make the bottom PBT when there are molded fins. PBT is a little more durable I believe.

doesnt hype do PBT on top and bottom of their boards...because if they do that would explain why their boards feel so heavy
