Why is the Barracuda deck thinner than the Flying Fish?
The Barracuda is designed for a younger child where their feet are much smaller. This means you don't need the excessive width that the Flying Fish has as the Flying Fish is designed for groms to teenagers who have bigger feet. The Barracuda deck width matches perfectly with the average foot size of a smaller child.
Why does the Barracuda with a shorter wheel base, turn slightly less than the Flying Fish?
Sometimes people think that the Flying Fish turns more but this is mainly due to the extra width of the Flying Fish which enables kids to lean a bit more into thier turns. With the smaller size of the Barracuda, the rider is not moving their feet around which means they can ride the board in the same stance without moving their feet.
