While the BMW1 has some fish-y characteristics, it comes from performance shortboard stock.  Light belly in the nose to manage chop.  Single concave with low entry rocker and lots of planing area through the middle.  Double concave to a V out the tail finish the bottom contour.  The straight outline in the middle leads to a definitive hip that makes the BMW1 pivot around the fin cluster for dynamic redirections.  When you’re ready to progress past your fish to a performance shortboard this a great first step, or for a more advanced rider in small waves.
