I have an asym version of this board http://willpoweredshapes.com/#/sans-fish/4568270625 by Will.

Picked it up as a bit of a punt, but it really has been one of the best/most versatile boards i've had. He can defo shape (lots going on in the design) and the glassing is as good (if not better:) than some of your more well known UK brands. . .

Highly recommended from me:D

Equally interested after reading yuoyuo's post about his asym board from him.

Looks pretty nice. Like Morning Light, Seed, Glide, etc.

Thanks yuoyuo for introducing this.

Mr. yuoyuo, that's a nice board, indeed!

I don't think I'm ready to try asymmetrical board, though, not just yet. Soft hull is complex for me as well. Bit too much variables to get used to for now I think. But definitely worth considering in my surfing journey!

Quick question, I never had quad set up, what are your quad fins? Regular M5 template with what sort of trailing fins? Similar to 2+1 set up "side bite" tiny fins (foiled or 50/50)?

no probs defever. . .it seems a bit different but its a really functional design, and quite a simple asym. . .

In this board (which has a v. wide tail) for the smaller stuff, i use the stretch fins. Also like the MR fins with a nub in the rear. For anything with a bit more power/size i've been using the controller set.

Hope that helps
