Quick Surfboard Guide teaser

We're just pulling together the 2011 surfboard guide that's going into the next issue and thought we'd let out a little teaser. We've had Wainman's Niccolo Porcella helping out fine tune the Wainman product info and he rounded up what a lot of people wonder about - the differences between quad and three fin set-ups, and when to ride which.
Here's Niccolo's answer and a teaser for next issue's guide:
"All our boards come with quad and thruster configuration options, so you can choose how you want to ride. Just to clear this up: a quad fin set-up provides a faster board that's better for going upwind and making longer, more drawn out bottom turns. A thruster/three fin configuration rides looser in the tail, turning quicker on a dime. While not as good at high speeds as a quad, it's better in the pocket. So if you're riding steep waves and going fast in a straight line, go for the quad set-up; if you're ripping top to bottom, opt for the thruster."

Simples.
