    Greenough stage 3 anyone use?

    Hey everyone, Recently listened to that podcast with Matt Chojnacki where he talks about preferring a more upright fin like the stage 3 to the 4a in his widepoint back logs. I myself prefer more upright fins in general and never really clicked with the 4a in any board. Anyone have any...

    Mabile twinzer fish review?

    Hey everyone, I know a bunch of people on this forum have had a twinzer fish by Larry Mabile. I had a few questions on sizing it vs. a twin keel. From what I gather, he foils them a lot more and the tail is pulled in. Do you typically go longer than you would your traditional twin keel dims...

    Glassing Schedule for Fish?

    Hey everyone, Curious on everyone's opinions on glassing schedules for smaller boards and smaller guys! I just ordered a 4'11 twin keel fish and was given the option of 4+6, 4 or 4+4,4 with them leaning more towards me going 4 4, 4 because I'm so lightweight (135lbs). A buddy recommended...

    Gato Heroi Acid review?

    Anyone ride one? My current midlength quiver is a 6'10 Thick Lizzy and a 7'4 V.bowls. I'm thinking about adding a 8ish Acid to the mix. I can't find many reviews on them, but the people I have spoken to about them seem to really like them.

    Anyone try, Wegener Bluegill or other finlette boards?

    I like the look of the Wegener Bluegill. I'm looking for something fun and different. Has anyone tried one of his boards? I unfortunately surf primarily backside so I know finless will be more difficult; but I'm up for the challenge! Ride reports would be great!

    Bigger fin in smaller surf?

    Hey everyone, I know that smaller fins create less drag and are therefore faster. However, in smaller gutless surf, is it better to use a bigger fin with flex so that you can drive off it to create your own speed? I have trouble generating speed, especially backside on my current fin setup...

    Wobbly fin, resin ok?

    Hey everyone, I have way too many fins, and they all fit differently in the box. My question is, if the fin has slight side to side wobble, but none when it's screwed down really tight, should I bother fixing it? And if so, could/should I just add regular poly resin to the sides of the base...

    Bigger fin vs. moving fin back

    Hey everyone, I've been breaking in my 5'6 2+1 mandala super stubbie and having a blast in this new swell. My problem is, on waves that are over head, the tail seems to want to slide out both backside and frontside. Right now I'm running the custom greenough side bites and 6.5" 4a that came...
