    6'6" Hynson quad fish, good in anything, fast fast fast. Down rails, great release. Anyone who has one, never sells it.

    7'0 x 22 x 3 KG quad fish - on the days where you don't want to be that dude on the longboard- (but secretly you really ARE that dude on the longboard) - Ripping fast Fun.

    Interesting you bring this one up - there's a similar one on CL I've been keeping an eye on (still a touch out of my justifiable $$ layout at the moment). Havent really surfed quads much (single and twins mostly - never really clicked with thrusters), but I've been looking to grab one to try out for a bit.

    Well, I picked up a 7-0 Tudor singlefin that was a bit too narrow for my tastes and ended up trading it for a 6-6 pintail egg (2+1) from an aspiring shaper here in RI. It’s an easy and really fun board (a bit rough-hewn in spots) - it’s currently on the block cause I just don’t surf it that much - I’m trying to dedicate my shorter-board time to a 6-0 Mabile KG twinzer I grabbed recently.
