I've decided to call the Alaia-Fish Hybrid the Vector. I can remember drawing Vectors in Physics class at school and if I remember correctly the little lines were measuring speed and direction. The allusions to speed and a straight line seem to fit.
The Vector is very fast in trim and I have been riding it more than my other boards the last few weeks. I find myself forced to approach the waves differently and draw different lines. Very interesting and a lot of fun.
