  • i think it's the opposite...less power=better on quads...the center fin makes it harder to turn than the two rail fins...but maybe that's just me
    I dunno.  MM is a pretty powerful surfer and is sick on the quad. 

    i'm not saying that you can't surf powerfully on a quad.  you can, and i'm quite sure he does.  what i'm saying is i think it's easier to surf powerfully on a quad vis-a-vis a thruster because of the lack of that central anchor.  it takes alot less to turn a quad than a thruster.

  • I agree with you.  Way easier to surf powerfully on the quad. The rail to rail transitions are easier and quicker without the center anchor with the end result being less speed loss and harder gouges. Never could really slow that Speedialer down.

  • That board looks sick for small waves.  I want one.  Here is a video of Cormican surfing on a quad in Florida going mental.

    Look for Flight Training School about half way down the page.

    thats the one I want....the lost shark quad...its a litt meatier...wider tail...sick.. 

    good for small waves...but if you have a bard shaped for btter days and not meater and quad fins and that thing flys. its def not just for small waves.

    btw, its about time you hippies turned this thread around...
