    I live in Bali and currently working offshore in Trinidad.
    Will be back in Bali in 2 weeks and will check the futures set up I have as a quad.
    I tried the recommended quad setup and it worked ok, then changed the front fins and that made a big big difference(cannot remember the fins).
    Now the 5'8" spit as a quad is the fastest,loosest and most fun board I have ever ridden.
    BUT have not been able to get it going as a thruster, it just gets to the bottom and stops/bogs. And then you cop it.
    Will invest in some more thruster fins, but love is so much as a quad does not matter.
    This board is an indo must have

    I am 5'6" 80kg 48yrs intermediate surfer
    think of buying 6'0" Hellfire and 6'5" HellRazor


    please see below photo, somewhere in indo

        secret spot
        nobody out
        That was the set of the day, steamrolled thru. Trimaran is a nice way to go surfing

        What about the Hellrazor 6'5" as the stepup?

            My vote too, if you are on a 6'0 HF.

              Put in some FAMT (robber) fins which have larger side fins and a smaller trailer and you'll get the drive to keep powering through your turns.
              If you like them you can buy another trailer fin and run it as a quad too.
              While we're at it, a thruster set up will need more back foot pressure than a quad. Basic I know but I'd be looking at your feet to make sure you're not standing too far forward (especially easy to do on your backhand).

                  in the hellfire it makes it turn like butter...it makes any board turn like butter...heavier guys will find it more use in wider tails...lighter guys in anything...

                              I can say with 99.99% certainty that we will never make snowboards. Get after some arbor sticks. I have seen a bunch up in their show room. Epic.

                                pity, would be interesting.
                                Just back from 5 weeks interior BC. Got a LibTech Snowmullet 156, loves pow. Then got talked into a Burton Nug 150 and I am a burton disliker.
                                The Nug is everything, park, groomer, deep pow.
