beating a dead horse, but Rusty Twin fin goes good backside.As far as fish go I've had quad, twinsers and twin plus trailer go good for me but am yet to find a twin that goes "good" backside. Not that I've had many. MR twin, lost RNF (as twin, no trailer), Album Townsend asym Twin. I, along with other commenters I've seen here have had It will go backside. Which twins actually goes good backhand? BTW, not down on twins AT ALL, just keen to hook up with one that excels both ways (slight pun intended)?
I probably won’t either.Learn something new every day
Just like a fish, square and squash tail, tomo, sup I would most likely never order one.
I have never snowboarded but skied in my youth and curious why?I probably won’t either.
I have an asym snowboard and after one run I came to the conclusion that all snowboards should be asymmetrical and if you aren’t riding one you are missing out.
But snowboards aren’t surfboarDs.
The real question should be why are snowboards symmetrical.I have never snowboarded but skied in my youth and curious why?
Thanks so do you skate as well and would you say snowboarding and turning/carving is more like skating then surfing?The real question should be why are snowboards symmetrical.
Heel turns and toe turns are done with different body mechanics and a well made asym snowboard compensates for these differences.
The board I have is unidirectional and made only for regular foots but there are double enders that you just mount you bindings for you foot orientation.
Btw, my snowboard in powder is something to behold. I sleep well at night that I could quit surfing and move to the mountains and snowboard every power day and not miss surfing one bit.
This is what I have...
It's a solution in search of a problem.Quite a few. What specifically is your reasoning for saying they are “stupid”?
Most people can’t ride HPSBs well. Are squash tail thrusters also stupid?It's a solution in search of a problem.
The tail of a surfboard is where all your surfing occurs. When a shaper to comes to the conclusion that the rail shape and length needs to be different to get there board working correctly, they've come to the wrong conclusion. The real truth is they need to give up shaping and start doing something else, preferably without hand tools or thinks there the structure matters.
I get it though. Less than 10% of surfers can do a proper turn frontside so backside is impossible for them. Why not go after that large segment of surfers by telling them it's not you, it's the board. It's worked remarkably well for golf equipment manufacturers.
