Or maybe some Tom Carroll quad rears at only 9 square inches

I don't believe in the 5 fin setup at all.

That is the only conclusion I can make.

Unless there is something drastically wrong with the fin set up on my board.
quads just aren't fun unless you're in serious waves. fast hollow, serious waves. even then, i'd rather the micro allowances a tri setup allows you to make over the rigidity of 4 fins.

5 fins is just taking the utter piss.

Futures have a couple of small rear quads at 10.73"

I've found with the odd Quad if I over size the fronts it has a significant impact on tail stiffness

Had a surf at The Bra. Not bad considering. I could get used to this not being at work.

You should join a men's shed beany. Your many stories and anecdotes would be a hit with the half deaf retirees.

Funnily enough I was having a rave over there this morning. Mens Shed is definitely on the cards for retirement. I actually enjoy using tools.

Just a bit of swell hype. 5.50am and the Manly carparks just about full and nearly too small to surf.

It's come up a lot. But a bit directional at this stage.

It was still as good as flat at north steyne yet south end was seeing long chest high lines although overpowering the banks into closeouts.

Glad I slept in. It’s going to be reefs only down here. No beachy is going to handle a 14 second period.
