I know this isn’t a stand up paddle board but this may be an addition to your surf quiver. It’s a special surfboard built by Joe Blair for older or heavier guys. Here’s what Joe has to say on the board.
Da Round-Pin Quad
What a blessing!!!
Here is the story:
3-pin boards had to have a lot of tail kick to compensate for the fins stuck too far on the tail which lost its speed.
Quads have a faster bottom so the boards are faster; then with the fins moved up and a smaller fin in the back you have a board that will snap turn whenever you want to. 2 fins on the rail so you don’t spin out. The round pin is 3 times or so better than the bat tail; rolls into turns quicker, it’s smoother and hangs in better when going fast.
It also has softer rails so it is smoother and more maneuverable and helps compensate for the faster bottom.
Full concave bottom going into double concave with a little v in the tail makes it fast. With a speed spot between your feet. Very important!
My fins are angled differently than other manufacturers. Secret formula.
Pins rule – squares drool.
