looking for advice on a quad from someone who's ridden them--is there really a disadvantage in waves over hd high?
tried the Stretch f-4?
check it out...
I have a stretch f-4 its a fast fun board. Good summer board. I rode it this last swell because my main thruster was getting repaired and found it to perform better than I expected in some racing tubes. One of my buddies throws in a full size trailer fin in the back of his quads to hold through turns better on big waves.
I got a 5'10 stretch quad.. i think its the fletcher model, but i got it used so im not sure.. i have only riden it since i got it love how quick it is, and its much easyer to blow the tail out on. but i still got my 6'4 for when its big and juicey
Has anyone surfed Rusty's Dwart yet, or any double wing round tail Quad. ?:rolleyes:
not true.. a lot of guys ride quads with their guns.. they want speed not turns
Quads and twins are THE fastest boards you can ride. I rode twins in the early 80's, tri's in the late 80's, quads in the early 90's followed by tri's untill 4 years ago when I went back to the quad. I had a custom Epoxy Pro (closed cell epoxy) Joe Blair quad - double bump soft squash tail which still looks brand new. This board excellerates out of bottom turns (flex is unbelievable) & is quick off the top. The only draw back I have found w/ quads & twins is they do not seem to excellerate through cut backs but that might be due to my surfing style. P.S. I bought a Tim Nolte fish & rode it as a tri fin for 6 months before I pulled the back fin out at which time it rode twice as fast as a twin.
