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...
While thinking about buying another wetsuit; I looked in my closet and thought, do I have too many wetsuits already? I'm curious how many wetsuits you all have and how many is enough?
My wetsuit quiver (Los Angeles)
1 x 4/3
2 x 3/3
3 x 3/2
1 x 2/2
1 x long arm spring
1 x short arm spring
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...
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...
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.
Hey everyone, for those of you that have or have ridden the Oracle, how'd you like it? I'm thinking about picking up a smaller Oracle with Manny's Delta V in a twin fin setup. I'm wondering if there would be too much overlap with my ASQ, Superchunk and Super Stubbie haha. My Super Stubbie is...
I'm sure this question has been asked a lot over the years; but hey, new technology, new ideas we're all handy! What are you all using to fly with glass on's now? Flying back home (oahu) and taking the twin keel with me. I have a good travel bag, but what should I use to keep...
A buddy of mine borrowed a set of fins from his friend and absolutely loves them. They are quite unique looking and he has no idea of their origins. Is there anyone who could replicate a set of unique fins like these? He reached out to True Ames and a few other fin...
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!
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...
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...
I can't seem to find the thread anywhere, but does anyone have the contact info for the woman who does wetsuit alterations here in socal? I think she was located in north L.A.. I want to try and add a crotch gusset to a really nice, but incredibly uncomfortable in the crotch...
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...
Hope everyone has been milking this swell! I just picked up a new 5'6 2+1 stubbie which is now probably my favorite board of all time. But, I do seem to have problems on anything over head high which I know is my fault and not the boards.
I've been trying to ride it similar to my...
I've always wondered this. In the past, when I ordered a custom it was always from a friend. If you're ordering from a reputable shaper, do you tip? If so, what is the standard?
All opinions are appreciated, thank you!
