He always ride boards that are too small. He did on review where the shaper added volume, he mentioned it was bigger than he wanted, surfed better on it than any other board Ive seen him on...

...complained that the board was too big.

It's crazy, you see him pump down the line and do half turns and think wtf, then he'll throw a random reverse out of nowhere. He's definitely better than some reviewers out there but I don't care for his surfing and it doesn't seem to do the boards justice. I can't remember which FW model he tested but he said he loved it and got a lot of comments... I thought it went like shit for him. And it was a FW model I like. Maybe the seaside?

Not sure how much he weighs but it sure looks under volumed, especially for a fish.
They do have a tendency to go small in Oz
When I first started getting boards from the USA they recommended upping my volume by 15%.
It was a good move

The dude simply needs more volume. When I first saw his videos that was my first thought. Then I thought he was a kook. Then he hit a huge floater right into a 360...wtf?

I wish I could remember the too big board he rode. Surfed the best Ive seen from him.

shaper/ghost marks the fin placement with a keel fin in mind,

fin guy, routes the hole with a 'standard' thruster mentality, ergo... fin sits further back. Classic!

What do you reckon?

Theres more with that fin placement, but they are thicker. Mine wasnt a one off on fin placement, it was a one off on its thickness.

Or it can be said that its a one off because normally the thinner ones are quads.

But yeah, the far forward fin placement on the latest iteration is wack.
