I wonder how those star fins would go on a mid length?
Cheyne is riding a reasonable distance from the tail so they might work

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Temples.

Tried out Cheyne Horan's Winged Keel. Its convincingly ahead at #AltFins.

Here's some recent pics of Cheyne riding it;

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fair play. I ride 2+1's and Quads in Sydney. Ridden all sorts up in Indo but wouldn't have it as dialled as you. It's the old thing I guess. Get a 2+1 from a 2+1 specialist, I'd say. I've never found them slow. Its probably just me Thud, I'll keep trying I doubt it Cranked. Are these altered McCoys...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The single is a 6" dolphin and unfortunately the only rear sides I've got with me are GXQs, the rest are at home. The 2+1 experiment was supposed to just be a short try out before the move onto the Gulwing/Winged Keel.

My quad fronts are X-large, too much fin for a 2+1 with a 6" dolphin?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a few good waves today and it had reasonable speed in a straight line, but I needed fourth gear and there wasn't one - it just doesn't have the grunt of a heavily pumped quad or tri. Ditto for turns, it does them but too slowly. The waves I ride here need warp speed, everything is speed, speed a...

Think general rule for shorter boards is the back of the side bites line up with the front of the middle fin. Neal Purchase told me that.
Thud when you say "back of the side bites" do you mean the back of the tip or of the base?

Keep an eye on Mitchells FB feed c-he regularly has a board at a fire sale price ($900 -$1100) when he needs cash
I was so tempted by a as new Wolf on it a while back
Drifter in Ulus has several classic examples of his boards with full artwork. They are not for sale.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I remembered that post of yours. I amost added that I didn't think Salty was amoung them but I couldn't be sure from the top of the cliff. They are all just walking back now. I'm just going out to Temples, if it fires up its a great little wave even at knee high. No-one out atm and conditions are pe...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I wonder if the thing Rebecca Olive describes in the piece, the taboo against aggro and violence toward women, means that it doesn't always play out in front of the pack -- again like domestic violence in a way, which often occurs behind closed doors, maybe in front of kids or other enmeshed family...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I haven't seen any incidents of aggression in Indonesia ever. Heard about a few though. Its more enjoyable surfing with a bunch of good surfers though as the lineup works much better. Too many learners and intermediates is more often a dangerous shit fight though. I can remember paddling into a good...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I moved the fin forward about 3/8", but the sets just about doubled in height this afternoon and all I needed was down-the-line speed.

A lunch time wind change wrong footed everyone, so only a few out, no-one competing for the sets so I took whatever I wanted.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Right on Thud. I've used 2+1s a lot, but always in mid lengths and they were OK, but never really lit up. Very sensitive to placement of the centre fin/the fin cluster shape. Mark where it is now. Half an inch further back and it'll be a down the line board, half an inch forward it'll probably be u...
