What a sexy shape. A new board and a surf trip to break it in, how cool is that!

I think you will have a lot of fun playing with different fins. Definitely try it out as a quad. I've got a 9x28, similar shape that goes best with that set up.

Thanks. This is my first non-quad SUP setup and on the smaller stuff, the 2 + 1 felt good.  But ya, I have the option to run it as a quad and I think on bigger waves, a quad will be the way to go.  In general, with the wider tails we end up with on SUP, I lean towards quads.

Can't wait to see some LB vids.

Ya, me too!  We really missed the boat on bringing out our gopros on this year's trip.  It's too bad--we had some really fun days.  My buddy did pull out his drone for the last session on the last morning before his froth factor got too high and he joined us out in the lineup.  It was a super cool remote sandbar.  Nobody around for miles.  He got 14 minutes of footage and managed to capture two wipeouts (man I wish I didn't bobble that take off!).  I love the perspective the drone gives though.  Makes a simple paddle out look great.  I made a fun little edit from it:
