Left to Right Fuzz Nutz in Black and the Alien
The Fuzz Nutz firstly has an old school Twin fin placement which is actually how originally quads came into existence. Back in the day ! It gives you option of riding as a quad or twin fin , depending on conditions .
The Fuzz Nutz has a lot of drive , a real lot , its extremely fast.
The deck is flat with a chime rail or bevelled . The flat deck line makes this board user friendly with a lot of hidden foam , then with the exaggerated rail shape still allows you to bury it !
Being a small wave board it has a flat rocker especially under the front foot ... The bottom shape single into double with a spiral V.

The Alien is designed in a five fin cluster , based of a conventional thruster fin placement with the added quad option . You can ride as a quad or a thruster again depending on conditions . The deck is slightly domed into a medium volume rail .
Flat entry rocker with the wide point forward allow you to ride this board short but paddle into waves easy and with confidence . The bottom shape is single into double concave giving the most consistent performance to suit all round conditions . This board is a real hybrid as some guys ride it as a groveller and other surfers swear buy it as travel board , perfect in small clean waves !

One way understand the difference if we take the same dimensions 5'10 by 19 3/4 by 2 1/2 , The Alien litres are 29.17 , then the Fuzz Nutz same dimensions 31.31 over an extra litre . Of course you have to take into consideration all the other characteristic like plan-shape, rocker design , nose and tail widths and rail volumes , of each model but you definitely have are two super fun hybrid surfboards !
