2023 Duotone Fish D/Lab Surfboard
The Fish D/LAB is now available in three sizes in Duotone's highest performance construction, D/LAB. Thanks to its large effective surface area, the board excels in smaller waves and lighter wind with amazing carry and glide. The Fish D/LAB is a manoeuvrable and agile high-performance machine that will inspire your confidence in small to medium waves. The board utilises a modern shape inspired by a classic design that feels incredibly smooth underfoot. It instantly feels comfortable, and you don’t need to adjust your riding style to maximise the performance. It’s such an easy board to ride and delivers so much fun, especially when the waves are small and the wind is light, that it has become one of Duotone's best sellers. This is the best board to have under your feet when the waves are weak, and the wind is light. There are many boards like this, but there is only one Fish D/LAB!
Fish D/Lab Features
SMALL WAVE SLAYER
Everything about the Fish D/Lab is geared up for generating speed and power where there is none; discover the incredible potential in small waves that this unique board offers.
CARRIES SPEED WITH LITTLE KITE POWER
The flat rocker and wider outline allow you to maintain speed and flow on the wave even when the wind is light; the Fish D/Lab is great for light wind riding.
GREAT ALLROUNDER WITH EASY PERFORMANCE
Perfect for light wind cruising but even better for shredding waves, the Fish D/Lab has a lot to offer; it's very capable when the wind picks up, and the waves get bigger soon.
REFLEX MEMORY FOAM SHOCK ABSORBER
The Reflex Memory Foam Shock Absorber offers superior comfort in choppy conditions. When landing aerials, it also has a memory, which means small heal dents you create are minimized, making the board look better for longer.
The Innegra Shield completely wraps around the whole board; this provides unrivaled protection from everyday knocks and scrapes and keeps your board looking fresh.
The Carbon Beam injects a high level of response and flex, making the board feel alive underfoot.
RMF SHOCK ABSORBER
Duotone's new RMF (Reflex Memory Foam) Shock Absorber in combination with the Innegra Shield offers decisive technical advantages over the Cork Shock Absorber found in Duotone's SLS range. First, it is lighter, without affecting the overall strength of the board. Second, it has memory; if you put a small heel dent in the board, the foam will push the dent out over time, giving you a lighter board that stays looking fresh for longer. D/LAB boards feel more responsive on the water thanks to the reduced weight and the remarkable damping effect that drastically reduces high frequency vibrations, giving these boards a smooth and forgiving feel to inspire your confidence when attacking the lip and landing huge airs. The choice of Duotone's World Champions in any kind of surf.
INNEGRA SLS SURFBOARD
Innegra is the reason for the predictable feel of a polyurethane surfboard, combined with liveliness, durability, dent resistance and incredible light weight. The weight reduction was achieved by replacing fiberglass with Innegra.

LIGHT TEAM CONSTRUCTION
Duotone is using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that Duotone no longer uses a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!
Using bamboo in their surf boards, Duotone takes full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help Duotone to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
All boards now come with Duotone's own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using Duotone's high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
