But seriously, the description of the aipas sounds right, given that the board is meant to be more high-performance than a groveller, and I thought the height might help ease me into the twin fin experience. Haven't had a chance to surf it yet.

How dare you critique my knowledge on a forum - i've told you before, i know everything about surfing. Ever.

They better work, but if not, it's all Jam71's fault! He raves about those fins.

The aipas are the best set of twin fins for that smoking shred stick staypuft, you ll be stoked.

If not, sell them to Batoes for a small profit & try my second favs: AMT's.

lol. I'd have to talk him into getting a new board first. Shouldn't be hard.

I'll post when I get the chance to take it out. Hopefully this week.

Somehow ended up watching rasta then Asher then Ryan burch in a YouTube binge after seeing FireWire are doing a fish. Fkukked now. Noticed surfblanks do machine shaped fish, short wide but not too thick as well. Double fkukked

I listen to the firewire podcast and got a heads up about this board before it made the website. They seem to lag behind a bit on a lot of their new models.

Soon as I heard about it, I remember telling myself.... wait 12months.... one'll turn up second hand.... 5'9 should do me i reckon, although might not have enough foam in it. 5'11 will be too long.

Great looking boards though.

Yeah I like the look of them. 5'9" is 20 3/8 X 2 9/16. I'm 90kg and while I like them short ( I'm 5'9" ) that might be a bit skinny lol. The surfblanks machined fish are the opposite, a 5'6" is 22" X 2 5/8. Id like somewhere in between. My jd fish was 5'9" X 21 1/2 X 2 3/4. Lot of board and I think I could have went a little narrower and thinner but Josh's boards can have a little extra foam with no drawbacks.

Asher kills it on a keel fish, so good to watch

I'd struggle choosing between fin setups for the saucer. And do you go smallish, 6' quad or mid length 2+1?

Talking to a guy who has one and reckons it is super loose, thinking a 6'2 thruster flat deck for the 90-105 kilo range of prime rib

I had a Mega Twin and a Rocket Fish about 10 years ago. To be perfectly honest I found then OK only.

I'm about to fix up an old Billy Tolhurst Fish. Looks like it should be fun to ride.
