It is good that we have a hobby like surfing because it will keep us young and in shape. Although the bad part is we need the waves and weather to cooperate so we can actually surf. I am glad that all of you can sympathize good stuff.
What do you guys think of the whole Stretch fins for a quad set-up and the AM2's for when it gets bigger set-up?
I did not like the Stretch fins on the Dominator or the Quadra Five, so I sold them, Others like Chris like them. I would have considered using the Stretch rears in combo with the AM-2 fronts. Past that now.
Ok, how come you did not like them?
What are your favorite fins in that particular board, the hellfire!
Stretch wise, were on another PU board as a quad. made the board track too much. Stiff on head high . Tryed them on the dominator once and the Quadra five. before selling them. Id give them another try if I still had them.
So far for the Hellfire I like the AM-2's (Tri) the best. Jury is still out for the perfect Quad set. I have been riding the Rusty's with good response. I want to try the Panchos or SA-4
I just picked up some 375 quad fins for the back and they might be the ticket with the AM2's in front.
I just rode it as a quad last night with a little knub trailer. reallllllly liked that, though I am still not great on the hellfire. I keep riding it in surf i should be riding my potatonator. I think it likes better surf....
Yeah, I was going to ride it today but it was 2-4 ft with some chop so I took the Dominator. That was a good choice, but it was choppy which the DOM does not like. Oh well, maybe this weekend I can get something with the AM2's.
I find my HF handles chop just fine - though I don't mean onshore slop. A bit of cross shore chop or even onshore so long as the wave still has shape, once it is an obliterated mess the spit or the dom if I'm desperate. I think in most cases it is just our head telling us this is puke (probably for good reason LOL) but I found the dom and spit handle it as well as any other board I've had. I spent a lot of time earlier in the year riding anything because I was trying to rehabilitate after surgery so I wasn't too fussy and I can tell you I surfed the dom in some real puss and I think it made the best of the conditions. Always nicer in light offshore glass of course.
Yeah, maybe I feel that the HF does a better job because it is a little heavier while the DOM is so light, at least in the FST version of the board. Yesterday was all crossed up so it probably did not matter what I was riding it would have been a bit messy. Kinda wish I had ridden the HF.
Oh well, next time.
