I don't like they way they look.

I never liked double wings.
Yeah aesthetically unpleasing. I always thought the Rusty Piranha would be better with a single or no wing. I'm not a shaper so likely that's totally incorrect from a function standpoint.

Maybe just re-branding. whenever I saw the name, i pronounced it in my head the British way of saying “ass”... arse. Just me? Lol

Edit: also, apparently Sakal doesn‘t read erBB or he’d know the new consensus among the Flingers is thruster, not quad. Duh. Where’s the center box, bro??

You flingers got me interested I like fishy wide boards.what are the nose and tail widths on those Bad boys? Do they have some foam in the nose or they like a traditional shortboard?

What's the connection with Ryan Sakal and Super brand Fling again? So soap box derby same exact shape as Fling?

My understanding is that he designed and developed the board while he was shaping for Super. Soap box derby is his version under his label.
I thought it was Jason Koons who came up with that shape? ....Collab from several shapers/ie."shapers' collective?

^ there are plenty of shapers with very similar type of boards
flat rocker, super wide tail, wide point somewhere between a fish and a shortboard
nothing that special
