Bad-ass Naish Quad

The 8'10 is now a quad. Time for Jacky to get some air!

Wow, you getting good at this
you are spending some $$$ on fins now. So, does it make that much of a difference? I am only riding a quad because that is how it came, I dont know if I would go to the trouble of adding in extra plugs......Just call me lazy
Nice work, I hope she likes it. If you ever move to the Islands, make sure your bring that jig along with you

I think it adds a little speed all around.

I have way too many fins. A full collection of Futures and now FCS.

Me too, I think I get more down the line speed but, nobody believes me.

One day we had 2 C4 bat tails, one setup thruster and the other quad. We swapped boards on the water, getting instant, fresh, comparisons. The difference was so great, you could feel it just paddling.

Going back to the beach and swapping fin setups doesn't reveal as much as on the water instant comparisons.

When I was working with North Kiteboarding's designer, they learned to exchange prototypes on the water, to get the best comparisons. It makes a difference.
