Me too. First surf of new stick today. Quaddy.
I don't know why but I find the quad setup kind of ugly to look at and feel like it will go shithouse.
But I'm a full convert on these Muz bourton round tail quads.
So good forehand and backhand.

I've had one for a while. Took it to Bali a couple of years ago. I think it's a bit long for the shape. Have occasionally had a very fast wave on it but compared to the other two quads I've had the Burton has a couple of hang up.....particularly on take off.

The Tolhurst Fish I've been riding is pretty fcuking amazing now I've got it tuned.

Enjoying quads at the moment......though not yet this week.
What the fcuk does that mean Beany? Does everything have to be a compromise?

I surf a quad exclusively, meaning i can never be bothered to change up the fin configuration and the quads seem to work in the board i ride, i think, so that's how it rolls. They cost a fcuking bomb too, jesus fins are expensive. They look boss though, they're DHD large and mostly black. I'm a fan of large fins. The quads make the board feel like it has fins, which is important. The fins also hold the board through turns so it doesn't skip out, which is also important. So i have the very best of everything, fins that hold the board through turns and they look good too. I'm not sure if 4 fins is better than 3 fins but it is certainly more than 3 fins, which must account for something.

I'm same as you BD. but my quad fins are pretty small. But they hold so I'm fine with that.

Um, I haven't been surfing this week, Duck.

Obviously the centre fin provides more lift and drive in a straight line, but this is rare as most surfing is just pumping turn to turn for speed.
This doesn't make sense to me. Definitely not obvious.
I thought it was the opposite - drag and pivot.

I still feel like I go faster in a straight line on quads than thrusters, channel bottoms excepted.
Unscientific I know.

Sorry Cranked, after the great kilojoule debacle of 2018 I can't even read any of your scientamatific explanations.

Went out too late mainly to give the new steamer a run. Steamer good.....surf crap. Bronte looked way better but there was a comp on.

Was down the beach seeing the doc to get a flu shot. There was the odd decent looking big left in amongst the close outs.
