The inward placed rear 4 fins common on Coles may have come from him being a polisher in the early 80's at Hobie .

I surfed with the Hobie team captain around 1983 and his were set that way to give them more of a thruster feel .

McKee seems have gotten credit for this type of placement .


I like that quad setup. My personal preference is that instead of having quad rears placed near the rail Id just ride it as a twin fin. I like boards made for quad rears in the McKee configuration.

Btw, the twin keels on my fish are Hobies made by True Ames.

the glassed in channels create an I-beam that provides additional cross sectional folding resistance.

not to sound like some kind of swaylocks dbag...and not dissing rail channels at all (they pretty!)....but wouldn't the i-beam effect ONLY strengthen the board if the impact is coming from the apex of the channel's depth (something impacting the bottom of the board) and NOT an impact coming from the opposite side (the board's deck)?

roflmao

cheers

8'6" = there's a ton of brown smelly overall weight swinging around my undies.


Well yeah, thats why I went with an 8'6"

No it doesn't matter what side the force is coming from. Its the same principle as roofing iron - you've got material that has more cross sectional depth. Channels would do the same thing on the bottom.

I stopped reading when I saw that bit - if you don't know that carbon fibre is black you've got no business writing about surfboard construction.
