Still waiting for decent swell here in S NE but Iíve had two seasons in very small waves. Can say in small stuff I didnít like the quad setup, changed to a med size thruster setup like Creek is running and the board felt much better, but this said the waves were only waist high. Maybe round pin boards like thruster better then quads, I know my kiteboards are kinda like that, my squash tail boards love quads and my round pin board feels better running thruster. Kiting you get immediate feedback as your blasting along all of the time. Iím going to try a small 2 + 1, I have 6Ē center w/ 4Ē side bites. Anyways the board is sweet and Iím happy with it 100%.

RBgar-  whats the deal with the interesting placement of the FCS/Go Pro mount half way between the nose and Pad?  Can't say I have seen that on any production board-

love cool things like that on customs

I had a fcs plug mounted back about a 15Ē for a Cam, didnít want it on the nose I case i needed to grab it to take it thru a wave, just thought it might get in the way all the way fwd. now that itís there Iíll also use it for a place to tie booties too for those nasty rocky access spots, I have on spot near my house thatís a real toe buster.

After a few seasons now totally loving the board, so glad I didnít go any thinner then 32Ē, great glide and stability with a sweet rail curve that really makes her turn like a dream that would have been hindered if I went thinner. It really surfs so weíll and is so light under foot for a 12í board, with the stability I just drop a foot back with twin quick paddles it spins to get waves and comes out going fwd, kinda like the old no paddle take off on a log. It likes the thruster fins, next Iím going to try a smallish 2+1 setup. Could not be happier

Small 2+1 seems to work pretty good, been messing around with med sides and a small trailer that works great in the small stuff!

Unfortunately we havenít had any decent surf to give the fin setups a good running.
