    Been riding my Falcone log, shaped locally right here. It handles all the summer waves, cuts like a knife and trims wonderfully. It’s dialed in for groovin too.

    Rode the Osprey Speed Demon yesterday in small gutless waves. I was expecting it to be hard to turn with it’s parallel outline and super wide tail, but was shocked at how loose and easy it was to turn. Also pleasantly impressed on how well it caught waves. Taking it again today, but will probably take something else out and save it for a better day so I can get a better feel for it. I don’t like taking a new board out in crappy waves as you can develop a bad opinion of it that’s not really true to what the board can do, but so far My opinion is pretty high on this board

    Really intrigued by those wide tailed Michael and Osprey boards.

    Seems to look and surf similar to Fowlers V8's. Mine caught everything fast and turned and trimmed like a dream.

    I’ve owned a Fowler V8, and this board is totally different. The bottom contours and rocker make it surf much much different.
    I’ve been down the rabbit hole of V bottoms having owned a Cooperfish, a Andreini, and a couple of Fowler’s.

    been riding a dead kooks stubby bought from a jammer that i've been really enjoying

    also picked up this beat up larry mabile twinzer for $100 yesterday, needs a lot of love (repairs and re-repairs of bad fixes) but i'm excited to get it rideable again. there is a ding with a soft spot on the deck and a lot of dings along the rails covered with a putty like material.

    i think the person i bought it from has the fin placement switched also, but he said it was his friends and he didn't really try riding it.

    Looks like that is a Twinzer, not a quad... try swapping the fins - large at back, small at front

    Been working with Brian Wynn at Wynn Surfboards and he's got me riding these trippy twinzer setups. The board that I am riding now is what he's calling "El Huevo Diablo" or The Deviled Egg. It's fast, loose and drivey without the drag of the center fin of a thruster.

    The Twinzer also works well on my fish too. Again, it maintains the drive and speed but loosens up the tail. Much more stability and drive than a traditional twin keel fish, but just as loose. Hard to explain but it's freaking magic.
