The Townsend has been fun from the start- so far I’ve used NVS 7” Mako fin and some True Ames side bites surfing North SD max high tide days between waist to shoulder high that have been enjoyable. With the right fins I think this board probably has a high top end.How do you like the the Townsend as a 4+1? I have Darkness and love it. Flowy and cruisy, but looking for something a little more nimble and Matt recommended the Townsend. I'm really hesitant to dive into a asym and just a little apprehensive in a mid-L twin, and was thinking of going 4+1 route, but might beat the purpose of the Townsend design? I prefer quads but have been experimenting with twins a little but run my Darkness as 2+1 and thought having an quad option and surf it more from the tail would be super fun. I have had a lot of Matts boards and usually super stoked.
With all the good surf lately I’ve mostly ridden the bullet amd Insanity So haven’t been able to cycle through a few different sets of fins to see how they go.
I have the NVS version of the Seaside fins which I’ll try the next go out on the Townsend.
