  • getting one, but having a tough time deciding quad or twin! it will be my first fish. closet thing i have to one is my a 5.2 mini simmons twin locally shaped in NJ, and i love it. truly a fun board, fast, loose and almost reminds me of a skateboard. it's the board i grab when i get tired of lugging my log to the beach and its waist high with a little push. then i have a 5.7 thruster and 6.0 thumbtail 5 fin option, those boards for the bigger better days. and a couple logs. at first was like twin all the way, classic fish! then i started thinking well i have a twin that i love already, but i don't have a quad i love. shaper says twin looser and a bit slower, quad faster and less loose. right, still cannot decide tho! i plan on riding it in waist to chest days.  ugh why can't i just get both  ;D


    right now i am leaning towards a 5.3 ish quad. thoughts? someone change my mind? i surf asbury area in NJ.

  • Get both.


    If that's not an option, I just picked up my first fish, twin fin. My logic was to keep it classic at first and take it from there. Machado's go fish is usually a twin too. And we all know if you get one of his boards you'll rip like him.
