    Head high barrels

    Just wondering what is your goto board when the surf is head high and offshore? I use my quad stretch its pretty solid, but I am looking to explore and try other boards that are super fast, any suggestions?

    i used to have a stretch quad.. it was great for fun size swells but in the winter it didn't treat me all that well.. personally i just dont like the quad when its really heaving and bottoming out

    i love the quad, it really benefits to tune your fins tho. do you have futures or FCS?

    I have a 6'2" Stretch Quad with Future Vector II fins. They are sick so I never thought about changing them. I've been riding a 6'1" round tail Aviso board the last week and its really awesome it feels real solid in the barrel and super fast on the face. I might be better bigger like 6'4" but I definitely like it.

    maybe my 6'6 or 6'8 (6'8 in a wetsuit) thruster. both have slightly lower rocker than the avg shortie. I tend to side with speed more than maneuverability. i'm 6'2 - 210 lbs. i don't see how you're 6'4 150lbs. you must be a linky bastard. .... i'm jealous
