hi all, so i brought a sweet potato and i have a set of 4 fins for it- they are the 2 sizes- small at the back and have SF4 written on them, so are these the stretch fins which people go on about?
when i do a good search i do get the same pics but also i see yellow stretches and ones with the word stretch on them? my fins are plane but with SF4

Quad fish vs lost round nosed fishHi
Just wondering if any similarity between the quad fish and lost rnf ? Are they totally different beasts or would they share some characteristics?
Have a quiver gap am wanting to fill and like idea of quadfish... Wanting to make sure it will be right for some grovel and also up to a few feet...
Hellfire ! Yes !Posted on here a few times now. Have a fuego and a futura. The futura is amazing. Took it in some good clean 4ft solid surf and it ripped. Had chance to pick up cheap hellfire so jumped at it. Took it out last week. Amazing! Was only pretty weak so i know it won't come alive till it gets bigger and more powerful, however I still found it to float and surf really well. Little more twitchy but I like that! Can't wait to get it in again.... Then took out my fuego.... Felt to big and buoyant!!! Think I bought too big, and all I want to grab us the hellfire!! However to change things up and. Compliment the quiver thinking selling fuego and buying a spitfire for the in between and general surf for 80percent time... What peoples thoughts? 5ft 8 spit my call... Just need to find one that I can afford!!
james started a topic Futura!!!!!!! Thank u queen for the bank holiday day off!in Futura
Futura!!!!!!! Thank u queen for the bank holiday day off!East coast uk had good swell today. Took out my 6ft futura for first time. Was great. So different to el fuego, couldn't quite believe it. Great board. Used k2.1s and seemed to work pretty well. Waves all bank hol, so thank u the queen for granting a day off today. Think futura is to be the go to board now.......Except picking up a hellfire this weekend. Damn
5'4" or 5'6"Hey guys,
I'm thinking of getting myself a sweet potato. I am 33, 80kg and 187cm and my fitness levels are good. I currently have a 6'0" Hellfire which goes real nice on grunty 4 foot + waves. But i find that it a feels a little too big on smaller waves.
I've tried a 5'8" dom which was too small and a 5'10 dom which felt too big. I'm leaning towards a 5'4" potato. Does this sound about right?
would a hellfire be a an unwise purchase if already own a futura?Hi all
i have a 6ft futura and was considering a 5ft 10 hellfire......satisfy board buying addiction.
Was just thinking that it might be a bit of a pointless purchase as have a futura in 6ft. It would be a similar volume to the hellfire and i figured would be similar board?
any thoughts be appreciated.
If not hellfire purchase i am going to stump up for a fish tail for the other end of quiver!
6ft futura....Got hold of a 6ft futura... Probs 4 years old?
Not got it wet yet....
Interesting chatter on forum about it. Seems it wi be good for variety Of waves? What have people took it u to? And how well can it grovel? Will it replace the trusty fuego?
Be stoked to gear
Nev, help with the fishes!Nev, surf the fuego. Spot on! Just sold a 5ft 8 surf tech wave rocket fish. Loved that board! Would love to replace with FireWire fish . Just wondering if u could give me some nev wisdom on the fishes in the range. Also wondered about volume if going for a fish, I surf 5.9 fuego and am 161pounds. Would I be looking at similar volumes in a FireWire fish or would I need more? I like the look of the fish tail . I have seen a 5ft 10 but at 35 litres is that too much? Would I be looking at 5ft 8 or 5ft 6? Loved my surf tech and want a similar FireWire! Thanks in advance!! Any of your insight into the fish models be great to hear
firewire fish tail......size and volumeHi
I ride the 5.9 el fuego
if if was to replace an old fish (surf tech wave rocket) what size fish tail would you recommend?
I would have thought maybe the 5ft 8? the buyers guide suggests the 5ft 10.
I note the volume on the 5 ft 10 is 35litres. that seems a bit high - or is it better to have lots of vol for that board?
grateful for any thoughts...
Nev...tell me about the FUTURA......an often missed board when choosing?Nev
Any chance of some Nev wise words on the FUTURA? have checked the video and the old forum
how do you rate the board and how do you describe it?
is is similar to the fuego? more like another? interested to where you place it in the firewire range?
what size woudl you ride if you surfed it, and what conditions would you take it out in?
of course anyone else's views also welcome!
5ft 9 fuego - hope not sold myself shortpurchased a 5ft 9 fuego
had a couple of surfs. the boards flies. real happy with it, but have felt I really have to paddle hard to get into waves. Once on the face the board feels amazing, responsive and the right size
just wanted to see what people thought about size choice, just wanting to re-assure myself I have got the right board - i.e would the 5ft 11 got into waves better?
im 5ft 8 and 161llbs and been surfing 7 years. winter wetsuit probs adds weight to
what are peoples thoughts - i ask because i note nev surfs the 5ft11 and he is lighter than me
