Being playing with the fins on the 'Evil Twin' she was a bit Skatey with just the Rasta's in the second set of boxes so I dropped in a rear box ...didn't work as I could'nt get a trailer fin small enough for the rear box, dropped in a pair of boxes in front of the original set and put the Rasta's in there and backed them up with a pair of baby Turbo's I picked up in Hawaii at Koa boards ($28)...sweet the board rocks in 3 foot stuff but when you get near the foam ball on bigger waves she starts to loose her arse.

Saturady is looking unreal with a big swell and a 16 sec period it's going to be big , so I cut down one of the Future plastic fins to the shape of the Turbo's and dropped it in the rear , I reckon this just might put enough junk in her trunk to make her stick.

Interesting set up..let you know how it goes.

you've got tomorrow to drop a couple of more boxes in- when it's all said and done-fives of um is barely enough

turbo's look good and like the back one you hand shaped being a touch bigger.

i'm interested to hear how it goes, really i am, despite all the good natured s### i hang on you quad freaks
cheers

ps don't tell anyone one, but a little while ago i did a similar thing with a shortboard twinnie i had(except no trailer fin) . turned out to be a harcore turner for the bigger stuff

Have you tried the Rastas where the turbos are?

Yeah thats the original boxes , the board always surfed great and the Rasta pull the board right onto it's rail , so big bottom turns any size wave no drama's it's only when I push around sections can loose the tail in the foam.
