Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

I disagree with some points on the above statement. As I wrote, my current board is 14 liters! And I would not want a bigger board. It's more about the outline than thickness. Transitions and low end is really not a problem at all with the board I have. And I ride in low winds too, a lot. I do 360 ...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

So I finally gave those v2 foils a go on a small Beach Beach break with my vader 5.3. (running it in quad setup) https://futuresfins.com/surfboard-fins/f4-5-fin.html I have to say I really did not like it, my usual setup is way more fluid and faster: (Creatures ARC, and QD2 rear fins) Creatures Medi...

Re: What was your Game Changer?

1. Sliding hook (much greater freedom of movement, especially in high winds, essentially a replacement for unhooked kiting, which is a lot harder in shitty conditions.) 2. Squared surfboard (Thomo Vader) much easier to go upwind while in general being less powered, and still easy to turn the damn th...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Every damn fin thread needs this link posted because 1/2 the people here who comment on fins don't know what they're talking about. https://futuresfins.com/en-us/fin-school/foil +1 NCM is correct. I've now counted several posts indicating this fact. Why can't anyone here understand this? So far the...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

So whats better a stiffer flat foiled fin, or the softer inside foil (V2)?

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Been running the 5.3 as a tri and quad. TRI VS QUAD As other say when you are running it is a quad, you gain more speed, upwind ability, but loose some turning ability and the ability to pivot straight up vertical to the wave face in the bottom turn. All things considered I like quad the most though...

Re: Firewire Vader

At 75 kg / 165 lbs i prefer the 5´3" - maybe because I was also in 6-5 wetsuit, and the waves not as powerfull as in Hawaii (?) For me the 5´1 felt super small, but then again I only had limited time to try the boards.

Re: Firewire Vader

Nor sure why you are arguing about this. Volume does matter - as a size indicator. People used to refer board sizes by length, i.e. "get a 6'1 board". Obviously with the Vanguard or Vader this makes little sense anymore. So people go to the next best thing - volume. Surface area would likely even b...
