    boards this style work well in certain conditions but are awkward on takeoffs in any kind of size or steep or in windy conditions they look like they're flapping around and not at all smooth they look all chopped up no style.maybe good for air,small or mush

    Thanks everyone. I'm just throwing around ideas for my next board which I would prefer to have shaped locally. I've only surfed thrusters and was throwing around the idea of a small-medium wave board like the white diamond. It appears to hold on heavier days too. I'm also thinking about a twin keel fish. I'm just not sure how a twin fin will feel especially backside after only surfing thrusters.

    Get a White Diamond type shape with a Thruster/Quad option (5 fin boxes). Can't go wrong.

    do it! i just picked up a white diamond & i absolutely LOVE the thing! can't say enough good things about it...i've had the imitators...a dumpster diver & a neckbeard from ci, a locally shaped dumpster diver style board...nothing comes close to how good this thing is. definitely my go-to summer board from waist high to head high.

    This is the response I have been looking for (despite the reviews and advice I have gotten from others)! Thanks NJ

    I had been looking at the Lost boards until I saw this board.
