Hey FW- Fan, did u get my email. Icant work how to send a private message.
Hey Fazza, had a couple of surfs on the pn now and well, wow! I went for a 6.0 at the end because I had a spinal fusion and still have a few problems, one is getting up on the board. Problem solved now. I thought the dom had great flow but the pn is unbelievable , even if you stuff up you just keep the speed or creat it very easy, and yet it still has great response. And the great thing is even with that extra volume. It really is super easy fun surfing that will only make me get better. I had the R2 quads in worked well, might try the power base fins next which I liked more on the dom.
Thanks Fazza 5'10 sounds like the go.
Potatonator size v performanceHi all,
I'm going to get a pn for small days to take over from the 6.0 Dom. The Dom floats me fine at 83 kgs. My question is in small surf would I notice the performance difference (average skill level)of a 5 10 to a 6 0 pn in small waves if I wanted more float. Does the 5 10 pn sit a lot higher in the water then the 6.0 Dom anyway for around about the same liters?
Thanks all, I have been getting up a lot better the last week or so and think I might go the potatonator or a baked p, so they can be a keeper for the small days.
Which small wave boardHi gents,
I have come out of spinal fusion with some small problems, I find it hard to get my feet under me on take off. Whats the easiest board to ride on take off, and like a hybrid board (as close as possible) on the face of the wave, including soon to be released. Ps when are some firewire girls joining the site be a nice change?
I did what you said Prj and emailed Powerbase fins and this was his response.
Information about size is not correct.
There were typo on the web site and it has been fixed.
We offer various combinations of quad fins based on our 4 shapes.
We always have the larger fin as the front twin fins. This is either DXL (XL
is for extra large) or DL (L is for large).
The rear fins for quads are offered as DM (M is for medium) or DS (S is for
small). With Powerbase fins it is important that the correct fin is used in
the rear for quads. Our centre fins will only fit into centre fin boxes
because of the orientation of the screws (alternate on centers) and the
angle associated with the Powerbase. Our side fins will only fit into side
fin boxes for the same reasons.
If you are ordering Powerbase quads it is important to know which boxes have
been used for the rear fins.
The front fins of the quad setup act like twin fins. They bury deep into the
water and give great holding power. They are positioned around your back
foot which gives a very short turning arc. The rear fins in quads lengthen
this turning arc to provide more drive than a traditional twin fin.
The size of fins is more a function of the weight of the surfer. Bigger
surfers need bigger fins. There is always some crossover with personal
preference on size of fin and surfing style. 1 size does not fit all.
With your weight at 85kg riding a big thick round tail use the DXL front
fins with DM rears for a setup with more drive or use DS rears for a looser
small wave kind of set up.
I don't usually get involved in forums but this information may help others
make better selections for themselves.
I was looking at the powerbase fins and need some help in which fin to get. With their quad set DXLs, DL the rear fin is taller but not as wide as the front fins, what does this achieve. Are the front fins more drive and hold, and the rear pivot and a little hold. If i wanted more drive and hold for bigger waves could I just put bigger front fins in or is it better to go up equally front and back. They have DXLs and DMs which are more standard front and back size. I wanted to mix match some fins, so some help would would be great.
Not so thick tail with a single or double flyer rounded tail, rest like the Hf, that could be sweet? Thanks for your advice Prj, I will check out the md for sure.
When you think about it, the Dom being one of their most popular boards, I wounder why they don't have a high performance hybrid bigger wave Dom.
Yeah if the had a Hf with a round tail problem solved for me. Wonder how long the Minnie diver is away? Maybe the most forgiving board would be best for me when its starting to get more high performance? If they are all going to be different.
Yeah Prj just had a look at the board, looks great. My thoughts were if you could keep the same shape board ie tail and close to width and thinkness it would be an easy transfer as it surfs the same because of the tail. Is this the right train of thought or is foil, forgiveness more important, don't worry about the tail or is having a round tail but a more high performance board the right choice. That's if it is more high performance then the Hf or should I say not as forgiving.Thats what I love about the Dom it makes shit look good. Love to see a review of the board from none pro riders.
Thanks guys. I thought that might be the case with the Hf. Just didn't know if the lost stealth with its round tail fang was another option. It's hard when you have to consider foil, rocker, and tail to make it as close to the Domonator as possible. I thought a 6.2 would have the right volume for me, but unsure now.
Which board next?Hi all, I would like some feed back if i could, on what board to get next. I have a dom 6.0. I am 82kgs intermidate, starting to link up turns with not alot of power. So I would like a board that is going to be similar as possible from swapping from one board to the other as I dont surf all the time. A board to take over from the dom in bigger better surf up to seven foot max at the moment. Paddle power, forgiveness good fun board. Beach break waves, Sydney. Your thoughts please?
Slowman, Sorry if that first part of the question was a bit hard to understand, but just joined. I was referring to the stabilizer fin. Have you tried the knubster to you home made fins as they seam to sit futher back or forward then yours in the thruster position? I have a Dom which I love, but dont surf that much, and at a intermidate level. I am starting to link relaxed turns when my feet are in the right position. Would the helfire take a few waves to get used to each surf compared to your kingpin? Both boards I was considering for bigger wavers.
Love your work slowman,
I think I will do the same. Bourton shapes (murry bourton) has his own personal fins as well, one for the quads and one for wide tail thrusters. More like your first one, worth checking out. Also how do the rusty fins go? Can you compare to any other fins?
