7 inch Squirrel Fin and my fin collection. I think I've tried enough fins. No more.
We tested the Longboard House Squirrel Fin tonight. This is the fin someone wrote about on www.supsurfmag.com
Jacky and I both hated it. It's not the fins fault, we just don't like 2+1 fin setups. A pure shortboard thruster setup is what stokes our fire.
2+1 makes a board turn around like a super tanker. I missed a few waves tonight because the board wouldn't spin quick. Then when surfing the wave, yuk. Too stiff.
I know some might say thrusters are not their cup of tea. Sure the board doesn't like to paddle straight and its less stable, but so what. I'm up to the challenge.
I will not compromise. I love the wild and loose feel of thruster. You just think about turning and it turns. If you haven't tried it, you're cheating yourself.
