Today I lucked into this little nugget at my local break. I’m surfing my 7-11 Nomad with the quad-fin set up. I’m using the T.Patterson Quad front fins 4.35″x4.3″ and the new 3.25″x3.25″ TA Side-bites for the rear fins. The smaller fins really help to keep the handling loose and speedy in the small stuff. I’ve been surfing the Nomad pretty regularly, both as a tri and and as a quad, and find that it paddles really fast, catches waves easy and is quite responsive. It makes a perfect transition board for someone wanting to step-down from a longboard.
