There are a bunch of them. Here's a list. Look down to US Shape3d companies and it will list (scanner) next to their company names.

I can get it really close with a level and tape measure. Then plug it into Shape3d.

Sounds like your surgery went well. I experienced a little lasting numbness an inch or so around the incision. It lasted for a month or so, but I don't notice it anymore. You'll be back at making drops and bottom turns soon enough. I'll get sciatica flare-up's now and then, but the stretching makes it go away quick. I don't sleep in anymore because my back starts hurting on about the 7th hour. If I sleep more than 8 hrs, I'll wake up with a very sore back.

12 miles is a good haul. Next year you can try to make it a little further. And so on. Nice paddle group, good cause, and really pushing yourself. I paddle the harbor at night sometimes. I'll paddle along the outer jetty and it's so black that you can't see your paddle enter the water. You can't even see the surface of the water. Totally paddling by feel. I do wear two small green led lights. I clip one to the back of my hat and one on the side of my PFD belt. I can't see the lights the way I have them attached, but boaters can see me.

This is coming up next weekend..... You should do it. It was my first race over 10 years ago.

Where ever they may be, I wish Wardog and Miss Wardog happy trails and a big Mahalo for all the years of stoke.

We are not getting any younger ;)

Since the upper Texas coast where I sup surf has basically small waves, all three of my sup boards are setup as 4 fin quad setups. Why? Because with small waves, I need the speed since my sups are between 30"-32" in width and they have large volumes with regards to my small 144 pound weight.

When I was researching fin setups, I came across a Blue Planet video which discusses all fin setups from single fin, twin fins, thruster (all three fins the same length), 2 + 1, 4 fin (quad) and 5 fin which I call 4 + 1 (quad with a small nubster).

The video of it is below.


Here's another older but good one from Robert that talks a little about the foils of the fins.

You will get more speed and less drive. I do have speed issues with my quads and trying to figure out how to control it. Generally I like the speed and the skatey feel, but there are times I miss the drive. Put your thruster setup back on and see how different it feels. On my performer long board I hated the thruster set up, but really it with quads. On my old 9' short board I liked the thruster setup, but the quads a little more. My 8'8 L41 is a quad only setup and I love this board.
The rake and foil on the thrusters makes a difference. The trailer fins are typically foiled two sides and the front fins foiled on the outside and flat on the inside. My Rusty quads are 4.5 and 3.5 feel really loose, but the tail of the board is narrow. My L-41 is 4.5 and 4.5 fast but a little tighter. It has a wide tail which adds to the speed and is taking more effort to carve backside.

I had a solo session a few days ago. Clean sets out of nowhere all to myself for a while anyway. I had a seal visitor which is usually not a good sign ::)
