my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: glassy Swell Direction: SW Swell Size: shoulder Tide: Mid - Rising.

well been away all weekend and been busy when the winds and surf has been up lately so was good to get out for a session today. Also haven't had a proper test of the quad fins I put in my hokua LE 8'3. I think I like the setup though.

still a light southerly when I was out and messy but got better as the session went on and tide got up. SOme alright sets coming through and wind went off shore as soon as I went in (oh well).

Also borrowed the Quatro 8'0 x 28.5 from Chris Brown. Super stable and has some surprising good glide while paddling for an 8'0. My 8'3 hokua is only an inch narrower but noticeable. The two boards ride quite different and it took me a while to figure how to bottom turn the quatro (I'm sure I could dial it in with more water time) but man it is just a beast in the top turns... just think windsurf cut back... same feeling seriously! Now have to try dial in my hokua to do the same top turns, or do a swap when chris is not looking ;)

2 thumbs up!
