  • 5'3" x 21 1/2" x 3" (42 Liters)
    • The 5’3” Fish packs in a lot of volume for a small board with 42 liters making it easier to paddle and catch all sorts of waves. This board is perfect for groms and adults alike who just want to have fun!


  • Made in USA
    • We manufacture our boards at the Marko Foam factory in Salt Lake City, Utah and have a distribution point in Huntington Beach, California. This allows us to have full control over our boards and guarantee they are made with the highest quality materials.


  • Made with 100% Recyclable Materials
    • We make our boards in a sustainable way with recyclable materials. If you’d like to learn more please check out our Board Recycling Loyalty Program.


  • Durable, Waterproof and Flexible Foam (no resin needed)
    • Our boards are made as a solid piece of copolymer foam that is completely waterproof. This makes for a very durable board that if dinged won’t absorb water and is nearly impossible to break!


  • Molded Stringer System 
    • Our stringer system is custom made for each board out of the same wood used in surfboards. They are molded into the board to add stiffness and strength while helping increase the performance!


  • Wax-Free Deck Pad 
    • Our EVA deckpad has small grooves making for a slip free surface making wax unnecessary. This allows you to keep your board in the car or sun without a need to worry about the mess of melting wax.


  • Futures Fins Included 
    • Formula Fun teamed up with one of the leaders in surf fin technology, Futures Fins, to make a fin box that would work perfectly for our boards. Having the ability to use Futures Fins in our boards is one of the main things that sets us apart from other foam board companies and brings a whole new aspect of performance to this type of product!

Makes me smiley

Super fun for small days, shallow days, or when you need a board you can beat on a little. Plus it’s impossible to not have fun surfing on a big ol’ smiley face. The grip pad is insanely sticky and definitely doesn’t need wax. Great deal for $260

Gulf Coast

Took it out in some small Gulf Coast waves and was surprised at how easily the board paddled into waves despite it’s length. I put in some Wayne Rich “Nightmare” twins to get that down the line drive with some release and they worked well..stoked!

Great board

The big volume makes it super easy to catch waves, but it still rides like a shortboard. It's also a great board for my young kid to paddle on his own, while still having some stability for him.

Black Magic 5’3 Pacific Beach

Definitely a great buy. The first impression taking out of the box it is not like any other soft top. It literally feels like your holding a piece of styrofoam. However it’s durability stands with the beast. It paddles insane feels like I’m paddling out on a 7 foot midlength. The futures twin fin boxes are great and this board carries insane speed. It is a great option to leave in the car all day or to take out on a flat longboard day when you still want to ride a short board.

Absolutely Worth It!

I stubbornly avoid riding big boards, sometimes to my chagrin when it’s really small. That being said, this board is PERFECT. Lots of float, easy paddler and turns super well! Had a super sick experience talking to Coby at the shop - so cool to buy something so revolutionary that’s also local! I don’t have to worry about dinging it or wax melting like on my other boards. When my more novice friends want to learn on small waves during the summer, I’ll definitely be taking this along to rip a couple in between!
