Thread: First Quad
26th October 2013, 10:28 PM #29
Despite comments from some of the more biased members of this forum I'd say there is little difference in turning potential of a tri and quad. But I think it is much more likely that the quad will be more draggy and less versatile. Thus for the s coast a well set up tri fin (if all else is equal) would be better.
Dont forget you can also adjust fins to loosen up or change the turning qualities of the board.

I wouldn't make any decisions without trying, I swapped between tri and quad today specifically to judge turning abilities, quad came out clear winner. The quad was smaller though, 72 vs the tri's 77.
The wind was honking on the outside but light on the inside, so was a bit surpised that the smaller quad ended up being the better performer. It may have to do with timing though, quad was used nearer low tide when the waves were slightly bigger and steeper, so all in all an inconclusive test.
One certainty was that I was having so much fun on the quad that I wouldn't have swapped it for anything I might have had in my van.* -Scourge of the Seven Seas-*
