Quad fins

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

Quad fins

I've never had a quad board so this might sound quite basic; however is it possible to quad a board with two sets of thrusters ?
I guess using the forward fins in each set ?

Yes but normally the trailers are smaller and set back a bit. Might feel a bit stiff - can I say that on a public forum?

that will probably work a lot better than a standard quad set, most quad rears have a 50/50 or 80/20 foil on the back which I can't get along with at all
took me ages to find the right flat foil rears for my futures quad, been using fcs side bites on my other

by all means try foiled rears, might be your thing, but it might feel like it lacks drive after big flat foils on the back
play around a lot, find the right fins for the board and then never ever take them out in case you lose them :lol:
