Way more forward than any paddle in gun - yetFin placement moved forward. So, like the Pyzel Padillac?
Forward placement loosens up the board so even though it's a big, heavy thing it can still be turned and actually surfed rather than just tracking in a strait line.
T&Cs had your logo on them and Firewire has logo like Mannkine on them, no difference.Incorrect
I spent 12 hours today shipping boards , I'm sure Dan had more Fun
You can easily see the plug placements in this video a few times if you try .
Maybe you should consider getting some glasses. It’s pretty damn clear to me where the fins go.No fins made it nearly impossible to see placement and he says placement is important, just like any shaper should say.
So nothing really to agree or disagree with other than he makes good looking boards. To that we agree, or do you agree?
My original comment is to inspire comments by posters here but not the type you always come back with .My turn for what? Why didn't you say that in the first place?
Why is it that so many of you can’t see the ”plugs”?I’ll take a whack at this one.
So the idea of moving the fins more forward (that’s what I’m assuming he did, I can’t really see the plugs) on a wider big wave board is to get the fin cluster closer to the rear foot. None of these big wave guys ride off the tail in the traditional sense. More closer to somewhere between 30/70 to 40/60. With that in mind, fins more forward may help with quicker adjustments and not get them locked in if an outside rail may slightly catch on the drop.
Move them too far forward and your inside rail may catch too easily and the nose of the board will track vertically to the top of the wave on drops.
Remember seeing people trying to turn those old long pipe spears after coming out of the barrel, it looked horrendous.
I still think small 6 to even 8 fin clusters will be the norm in the future.
AH, I got to get off the ipad.Why is it that so many of you can’t see the ”plugs”?
