Pug ride report yet?

I’m land locked for a couple of weeks, my ears are jacked up from to much water lately, the waves have been good! I still haven’t broke out the new 2win yet, my new quadfish has been to much fun, in really good waves too. Anyway while I’m kicking this ear infection waiting for this amoxicillin to kick in, I was hoping to read your ride review, on the pug.

I kinda know why they split, but not really, if that makes sense?

No pug ride report yet. This snapped ligament in my ankle is taking its time and the waves have been pumping. Gotta wait for it to be much better b/c I just know I won't be able to hold back if I see a meaty section. Don't want to re injure it since I've waited this long.
I will say this: this thing looks the tits. Really foiled in the back with a good bit of flip. Can't wait.

Is it a pretty universal opinion that the "quadfish" is the easiest model of Stretch's to ride?

I liked my Gbuzz better.

I really liked my Gbuzz too, it probably groveled better, but I love that connected feel and drive from the single concave.

GBuzz is an amazingly versatile board in terms of wave size and power while maintaining performance. From micro-waves to overhead waves, it feels positive. Even I can get it on a rail in small surf (with large fins) and then in larger / more powerful / rounder waves and smaller fins, it surfs like a shortboard and doesn't feel stiff at high speeds. I've had other wide-tail boards that wouldn't sink a rail at higher speeds; the GBuzz does. I have found that I prefer a center fin in larger / more powerful surf. I've also found it quite resilient to pearling as opposed to some other fishes I've had. I continue to be stoked on this purchase. Up north here, there's a lot of directional changes with the "mushy closeouts" (someone else has credit for that term) and this board does that better and faster than the fishes I've owned. Make sure to not oversize it! I didn't and I'm grateful.

I oversized mine, didn't feel right and it would pearl every single time. Sold it and got a properly sized Super Buzz, never looking back. Although i'm pretty sure I'd be stocked on one if I sized it right.

Hoarder, I have the stock 5'7"x20.25 CFT version with deck channels at 31.4L. I'm 6'1" tall and 170lbs; 43years old. Surfing for 33 years - but with some very intermittent years in the 18-28-year decade. I surf mostly in Oregon so, add the weight of a hooded 5/4, boots and gloves to the body weight. I've taken the GBuzz to SoCal, Puerto Rico and Salinas Cruz. It actually feels large without a wetsuit. If I lived in a tropical location, I would've reduced the length to 5'6". But with all that rubber and water moving up here, the extra 2L from my recommended helps in paddleouts. I wouldn't recommend sizing any greater than that 2L mark. I've done that to fishes past and prefer the recommended range. Somewhere on this thread I identified the fins I use between the small-wave quad setup and quad+trailer setup.

In Mexico, I used some large-size Glass Controller Quads which didn't suit me with this board. It felt stiff and surfed flat. I used the Stretch quad + trailer for Mexico (sand-bottom points under head high) and it was great meaning more lively and on the rail.

That's super helpful, thanks! I'm around your size and have a 5'6"x21" bottom feeder that I really like but is getting a bit tired, so I've been looking at the Gbuzz.

Works great from 1' to HH never had problems with pearling think it might be more adjusting to short stubby board where you want to drop in under lip ideal cheers

Hi, I'm looking to fin a 5-8 superbuzz. Biggest fins I have are the 4.625/4.25 S2 set. Just got the board and haven't ridden it yet.

If after trying it with the S2s it feels too loose, what's the reccommended buzz controller size (smaller 4.875 or bigger 5.125)? I'm 185 lbs, 6'2.

the small buzz set seems large to me compared to the large st2 set, im 200lbs and use bigger fins

I didn't find the small buzz sets too loose or too small, but I would like to try the large buzz set

bigC have you used the large buzz set on your quadfish? how do they go? I haven't tried anything other than large st2 on my qf, they just go so well

would potentially trade large st2 for large buzz if anyone is interested.
