To be honest, underwhelming. Yes he is doing some funky spins etc BUT having to crouch almost on his butt to maintain balance and also on some fairly perfect peeling waves albeit pretty windy by the look of them. Interesting but if I had the chance I'd take a regular thruster out there every time.

Mate i think most of the internet is underwhelming for you ;) .

Its just about mixing it up a bit

he does miss a barrell cos the wave face is too steep and he cant maintain his line. he would have got into and out of that on a thruster or even single fin

Howver he would not have made alot of those sections on a thruster just cos hes going so fast
