I can't imagine a circumstance that would cause me to set aside that beautiful JD and pick up the other board.

What did you do with the short JD you had Beery?

Two mean boards, both 6'9", one a 10 channel Free Flight singly, the other a semi re vee Banksy quad (for now)

For very solid high quality waves of slightly different kinds. The 10 is for big fast open faced down the line surf, the Banksy is for heavy barrels. I'm gonna mess around with 'em in the next week and a half in shit waves, get a feel, then maybe go to Hawaii or somewhere like that

yeah it is, I haven't surfed either board yet, I don't wanna do some shitty snap on that 10 channel, that thing is for max effort hydroplane carving on big walls.

Did you say you wanted fcs2s not fusions or you just take it how it comes?

Ah I figure you need a box to hold fins in a board when it’s bigger but if you’re gonna have five of ‘em then you want them to be small boxes. It’s different in a bigger board ie 9’ plus when you just go with Futures. But when they’re clustered like this you don’t want the boxes changing the tail.

I don’t really like five fin boxes or quads generally but this board is pretty specific and Banksy was really like “Honest you’ll get a kick out of it as a quad” so what the hell.

Too much rocker and fine rails to work in weaker waves. I have surfed it at the farm at chest high but i was really just teaching Mrs. Beerfan. It went ok but with some push it is a beauty. Took the 8'2" out this morning. Great board too!

Just got my first hp quad that is designed as quad primarily over thruster.
Planning to be my go to small-medium wave shorty even though I've always surfed thrusters.
See how I go.

2nd hand but never surfed for $400.
5'10 - 19 1/8 - 2 7/16
Actually feels smaller under arm than the dimensions suggest.
