the thread is long you can read prior posts above but yes imo it is not a mushbuster but will really come alive in waist high plus.. but waist high is mush by most standards... theres a difference being flat faced waves or waves that stand up with a face/wall to them...this board would be difficult to put into one category, I think it can replace quite a few boards up to a wave height that would make most be looking around for a bud to paddle out with

...when Hynson & Sean visited here in sept., i plucked a 5'9, red tinted poly BKQ off of them before they had a chance to take it to the Surf Expo..haven't really surfed it in anything under chest high, it is the faster board i've ever had under my feet...as sean says,"the mojo is in the final back of the board", it doesn't surf off the front foot like a keel fin, & has a little more rocker than a reg keel fin..when you 'activate' the back of the board in bottom turns or cutbacks, the response is lightning fast..i'm still learning the board, but it defenately rocks...personally i recomend a good pad since your driving off the back..it helped me alot..

what do you guys think about the BK as far as using it in smaller waves as well? my quiver isn't yet as big as your guys', but i'm assuming the BK would still be faster than my short/longboards and maybe more fun in the small surf as my first fish..




I have always found the twinzer setup better for small waves. The quad is better for juicy stuff. It is more stiff.

micka,
The response/direction changes when you push off the back
foot are, indeed, lightning fast...more responsive than I
expected. I'll keep the tailpad in mind...but STOKED on
the board so far.

Troyus,
Although I'll agree that the Twinzer is better (faster)
in small waves from what I can tell, I most definately
wouldn't call the BKQ 'stiff', at least not this one.
Don't know if it's because it's so light with the XTR or
what, but it is insanely responsive and nimble.

Both boards fuggin rule...just don't need both with the
other recent additions.

I haven't ridden a black night specifically, so I can't say anything about that board, but in general, I have found that setup is better for stronger waves than the twinzer and vice versa. Either is better on a mush day than a razor thin thruster.

And I don't mean to say that setup is stiff as much as a twinzer setup is really, really loose.

Twinzer, definately a faster board that will work better than a BK Quad in small gutless surf. In defense of the BK Quad, it actually surfs small waves pretty well in comparison to most Quad Fish. Especially if XTR or EPS. My Pavel Speeddialer didn't work for me unless the surf was at least shoulder high, and that was still pushing it. If you are only going to be able to get one board, the BK Quad would definately be a better all around option. If you mainly surf small or gutless waves, then get XTR or EPS.

...o.k., just got out of one of the best evening sessions i've had this season, if not the year, at one of my favorite low tide spots, 4-5 ft, maybe a lil' larger on sets, no wind for the most part, & trestles-like waves...the BKQ performed outstanding, i stayed on the back of my pad & flew past sections with ease, it sat up and trimed at speed beautifully, went vertical on a dime on snaps...i've had it out in about 10 good wave sessions, but my surfing wasn't consistant 'till tonight..got it pretty wired...as you can tell, i'm stoked...now, just 20 more sessions like that and i'll be set
sean, if you see this, thanks again for the stick, it unreal..make sure to pass it on to mike...

I think you should add this same post to brownfish's BKQ
thread...that way I can add my own thoughts there as well
once I've had some more time on it. And throw up some
pics as well, would 'ya?
On another note, looks as though this board may be gone
on Saturday, unless someone snags it before then.

I'm back in the game, bitches!








Picked this one up last week in an attempt to re-live
the feeling of rediculous balls-out speed I remember from
the original. This one is light as fark! According to
Mattison, this was one of few EPS/epoxy/poly combos done
at one point. The thing is now nearly new looking after
some work by the Surgeon and I look forward to seeing how
it goes if we ever get waves again.
