I currently ride a Catch Surf 'The Super One'. They're built like boogy boards so they can handle being stuffed in a rack. It's a rocket compared to my Placebo epoxy surf skate I had before. All of my stuff is FCS, and I play with fins all the time. Right now I'm running a set of Santa Cruz glassys out of my big water board.

Love the shape of that board.

I love the fact it's rotated 90* counterclockwise to where it's supposed to be...

Scott, can you tell me what fins you have in that thruster set up.

Alberta that board is wack yo haha
My boards have marks and dings all over them. I got some board resin in the mail right now to do some repairs.

That's why I bought the catch surf Traxx, it puts up with being tossed around. That big square tail is great for airs. Dane Reynolds rides ugly shapes like that.

Very interesting to see everyone's boards. I am an intermediate surfer. I use a Ronix Koal Limited 5'-6". I usually run only a center fin. When I run the outside fins with the center fin the board becomes very unstable. Any ideas why? I can work the wave pretty good but I would like to do 360's and other tricks. Any suggestions on my next board?

Some wax on the racks helps fyi. Looks kinda funky but I don't care. It gets on there anyways.

Originally I had it in the rack pad up and it left marks on the bottoms of my boards. Then I turned it over so the pad was touching the rack. That left and indent in the pad. Not good turned it around, noticed the wax was preventing marks on the board. Who would have thought?

I just talked to Bryce at Day1 and have a sick board in the works. Doing a thruster set up. Looking for something new.

I ride thrusters because my ocean boards are all thrusters. I'd like to try a quad though. I like the Doomswell stuff, I might have to give them a try. Does a glassy board hold up well being banged around a boat? I switched to epoxy on my ocean boards just because of travel damage. It sucks arriving in Australia and finding big dings from the 17hr flight...


Treiter. Try a board that's built like a surfskate. Ozzy Wright has some sick stuff out with Santa Cruz right now. You'll have to really snap a thruster to break the fins loose as bring it around, but you'll be able to generate more speed.
