8'4 is as good number.




  8'4.  Thick in the middle at 3 3/16ths, but thin rails.  Can knee paddle it better than my 9'0.  9 feet is too long.  Extra volume goes a long way.  This board paddles like a 9'3 but fits in my car easy.  Ridden every day of our last swell, at times in the most hollow low tide point break conditions around.  Lots of rocker fits into the tube when I can commit.  Rocker and a bit of thickness go well together.  Board is light.  Great flex.  pretty grain.  durable like a chinaboard, but rides much much better because poplar flexes better than plastic.

9'0 quad

Light, Strong.  Quads drive like a thruster, and are lose like a single fin.

9'0 in the works.

                                                   
                                                              I'm gonna miss the 2 car garage.

Fins

Some complete.  Some in the works.
The 8 1/4 inch Andreini flex fin really made the speed shape come to life.  That is why Andreini is my favorite shaper of all time.
 
I can make fins that are prettier and way cheaper than fix box fins.  I can't pay 50-90 bucks for fin box fins.  Especially because they dont all use the same system.  Center fins are all tooled the same way no matter what the brand.  I can appreciate


 
Thrusters work great for me below 8 feet.  turn whenever you want, wherever you want.
