Right. Maybe he'll chip in with a ride report. Thinking about one for myself.

Re: Midlengths

Sounds like a Joel Fitz sea gypsy would suit you well. Wasn't it Tootr who bought one from my local shop? If so how are you liking it?

Re: Midlengths

I've got a 6'6" and a 7'er in those Tajen's. Run them with Webber flex twins and a nubster in the 6'6" and with twins and fcs bonzer sidebites (the smaller of the set) in the rear quad plugs or a straight quad fin set in the 7'er. They can handle size no problem. Can't post photos here. Pics here: h...

Re: Midlengths

Hard to tell in that pic Cranked. Is there can't in the side fins? I ponied up and bought the 4 fin side runners fcs bonzer set $159. Use the larger ones in a 2+1 application and the smaller ones in the rear quad plugs with twin fins. How's the 7'6" salient go? The guys I know at surfboard warehous...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Thanks Thud, I might give it a try, but I'm sold on the "Bonzer" setup I just tried in the Wombat. That set-up will turn mid-face and hold a high line with great speed. I'm keen to try it in double overhead plus. Years ago read an interview with Malcolm Campbell about bonzers and he said that putti...

Re: Midlengths

I've been using bonzer side runner fins in my 2+1's for years. Never took them out of any board I tried them in because more conventional sidebites felt better. The DVS sidebites are my next favourites. They have a template like a sharks tooth.

Re: Bonzers

If you could be bothered you could make them out of old glass flex fcs fins like the M7 and M5s providing you can bend the cant into them at the tabs with heat. I've made funky mini keel sets and Stretch quad trailer fins out of them but never tried to put cant into the tabs.

Re: Bonzers

I'll say it now for the record. Just buy some FCS bonzer fins ($160 Aud) and don't bother cutting down fins. You want the cant of the bonzer fins.
This is coming from a fin junkie!

Re: Midlengths

FYI have a look at the new Ocean and earth 7'6" softie they just made. Really flat rocker and feels almost like a normal board under the arm. no bloated rails on it. I ride it finless for shits and giggles. The MR twinnies they have just made are the same...for a softie they are a real eye opener. C...
