The beautiful thing about a good fish is that, if treated correctly, they tend to last longer than your average shooter.

Partly due to a little extra thickness, and partly due to the tendency to ride them when it’s less than treacherous. Whatever your attitude towards the humble twin keeled vessels, if you should happen to be gifted one free of charge through, say, a competition running conjunction with our amigos at Corona, then we defy you not to fall in love with your stubby new friend.

From Steph to you, with love.

Alex Crews is the brother of former CT’er and perpetual ray of sunshine Mitch Crews, and he’s been humbly building a reputation for building crafts of all varieties that just, go. Shapers with the capabilities to make hi-fi, high-end shooters translate their mastery of intricacy into vessels designed to draw more simplistic lines. And that’s nothing but good for you and me, and Steph, who made the ACSOD flyer dance like few in surf world can.

We’re here to give Sir Crews’s creation away, so without further fluffery let us reveal the lucky (see also: eloquent) winner:

Keely Walker, today is your lucky day!

The next craft we’ll be gifting next comes courtesy of (perhaps) the most influential living shaper, one Simon Anderson – announced same time next week.
