revolution surf has been selling the keel less horan for years as well
i have several of the singles and they work well especially front side

Larry Allison makes them

reminds me of the ol' 747's that were out for a while for towsurfing



I sent Cheyne a few of them and he came up with these. I also did some of the graphic art for him. smile. Larry and I did quite a bit of RandD on it with some good wave riders. What we got from our feedback on quads was they work better with two regular rake fins in the front and the Spitfire type in the rear. My guess is a thruster would be similar.

I used a 7.5 Spitfire with two regular side bites on my cheater and it was fun, but I can honestly say not a huge difference in just using regular thruster fins. The biggest difference seems to be the longboard riders who use the Spit by itself. Ho Oneula...hope all is going well for you. I've been out of commission again for awhile. Shoulder injuries continue.

We both agreed that while Shaun was ripping and probably 'won' the heat, Cheyne's turns were absolutely the most solid and powerful, of all the guys.

IMHO he should have used some of the waves from that heat, in his promo video.

I still can't figure out how to embed, so here's the link.

I think his best wave is at the 9:40 mark and then they do an immediate replay, with a key turn in slow motion, with MR commentating

cheers

I remember. Cheyne has another shorter video where he is literally killing it. Best footage I have seen of him in years. Cheyne is Cheyne, but he seems to surf better when he has something to prove. ha.

Board in the video looks difficult to sink the rail.
Then again, all his boards he surfed had thick, wide tails.
Looks like a lot of extra effort involved.
I surfed one of his personal's when Linden was shaping them.
Trippy.
I would try those fins on a conventional board though.
