Once you’re in the wave, the aggressive 5 fin setup gives you more drive and acceleration without working as hard as a quad or tri fin setup. This unique setup also gives you the option of configuring the fins how you want. Ride it as a tri for a more free, skate feel or as a quad if you’re looking to track more.

You don't carve through the wave, you move the wave around you.

remove the centre fin and you have a quad. or remove the 2 back ones and you have a thruster set up.

Jeez does NOBODY read the whole page any more? :lol:

The new T-REX is the perfect travel board. The shorter sizes make it easy to take with you to your favorite wave destination and fits in a wider variety of travel bags. Each of the sizes ride like a larger board without the weight and hassle. The single concave makes the board ride super precise, but forgiving for all levels of rider. The tail shape allows for sharp carving in any type of condition.

You put it on your feet and ride it, you don't have to make love to it.
