This thread has got me looking at quad fish again.
I've never owned one. Always wanted one just to try it. Used to have a twin keel 5'10 south point epoxy... had some great sessions on it, but only on the forehand.... I suck on my backhand and the board didn't help any. Is there a big difference between a keel and a quad fish? I used to druel over the firewire fish many moons ago, never could find one second hand when i had the cash available.

Yep, I had to rethink my bonzer order today. Too many boards for 2-3ft waves.

I like having variety, no matter how much I love my keel fish, I like surfing different boards. Variety is good. Never bored.

I've watched that clip of Joel Tudor surfing pipe on what looks like something in the 6'6-7'0 range.

There was another thread where a guy asked about a sweet travel board for all conditions. I reckon that's the ticket.

Did you can it all together or did you alter it? Get a 6'8 x 20 1/2 x 2 5/8 B5 Egg. If you don't like after a while I'll buy it off you :oops:

I tried the twin keel thing for a while. Magic in the right waves, but really quite limited.

Solution - Pulled in tail, double flyer, quad fish. Curvier outline, more rocker, belly concave to vee. A blend of old and new. Best board ever for 1-5 foot waves.

Yeah totally agree with the keel fish. Fkukking love mine but it wants certain waves. Less than average beachies don't cut it really. Surfable, but when you get some nice clean down the line type waves it just rocks.

But not really an everyday board at all

Sounds just like a Pavel Speed Dialler
Yeah more or less, but it's a curvier, more rockered version. Retro meets modern so to speak.
