In the process of dialing in a G-Buzz with tommy. Might also get something else if I can swing it. Hell of a time deciding between all the options. Buzzsaw squash or round tail looks siiiiick and then there's the Skate....

I have a b'saw, can vouch its a siiiiick board. Highly recommend. Got it in Sk8 deck too, amazing. Feels so good paddling, sitting, standing. Stretch has that dial'd.

:wave2:

(EDIT: its the swallow tail)

i think we're central


Ignore the Stamps Indo Fish on the left and you have my Stretch quiver for SFOB.

5'2" Super Buzz
5'8" Buzz Saw
5'11" 2x4
8'0" Fletcher 4

Can't say enough about how stoked these boards have made me or how great the Stretch crew is to deal with.

What fins you runnin in the Super B?
Weigh 155 or so and have tried with varying degrees of success:

Small(er) Buzztrollers: Would be good exclusively for low end. On bigger (3 foot) waves had to nurse bottom turns and ended up accidentally blowing fins out off the top. Liked them with the nubster however

Large AM2 tri: did not enjoy, but also a quad guy

Futures Controllers: incredible drive and felt great backside. a little too sticky off the top frontside in more vertical waves

AMT with trailer: awesome! skateboard feel with plenty of hold at larger end for board. Currently running as fronts with Futures 3.5 quad rears which I like a lot.

Only setup I have not tried would be the equal size front/rears route, which is kinda a pain with futures. Would like to do so as I feel like the board is already so skatey it would do well with a more normal fin setup.

Great feedback!

I've ridden the MB2s as a Tri in my B'saw and really clicked with it. Have the 5 fin S#2's to play with as well.

Was thinking of trying to get another rear MB2 but like you said its a PITA to find.

Buzz trollers (large) did not work too well for me. A little sluggish and didn't have that skatey feel I was hoping for.

I was just thinking this morning about the AMT twin + trailer setup. I am going to def give this a go now! thanks Bro! :cheers:

Man that board looks good, too bad I'll never have the balls to ride the waves that need something like that.

Just go stand in Stretch's shapers bay for 10 mins, you'll have all the testosterone you need to chase Rhino's :helmet:
