Just bought myself a new FST 6'4" spitfire, run it twice now in 3-4 foot swell with a quad setup, using the FCS M5 fronts and M3 trailers that it came with. Still adjusting to quad which I am really enjoying having only ridden thrusters. Initial thoughts are the speed is amazing although i have found myself getting a bit tail happy on my bottom turns. Not sure if this is down to medium size fins I have in, or just needing to learn to finese the board a bit better. Just wondering what the thought on this board is, as far as conditions for when to run as a quad and when thruster, and also fin choice for bigger guys (I'm 6'4" and 92 kg). Looking at previous threads seems the Rusty r2 and Stretch quads sound popular, do these work ok as thruster setups as well? Some input would be appreciated thanks.
No announcement yet.
