    Love as a quad, as thruster feels like dead fish

    I got 5'8" Spitfire and it is amazingly so much fun. I only ride as a quad.
    Have given a couple of friends a wave on it and then have a lot of trouble getting it back!
    I have tried with a few setups as a thruster and every time it just feels like a dead fish...
    What is a good thruster setup for Indo only??

    pity, would be interesting.
    Just back from 5 weeks interior BC. Got a LibTech Snowmullet 156, loves pow. Then got talked into a Burton Nug 150 and I am a burton disliker.
    The Nug is everything, park, groomer, deep pow.

    I can say with 99.99% certainty that we will never make snowboards. Get after some arbor sticks. I have seen a bunch up in their show room. Epic.

    Will be back in Bali in 2 weeks and will check the futures set up I have as a quad.
    I tried the recommended quad setup and it worked ok, then changed the front fins and that made a big big difference(cannot remember the fins).
    Now the 5'8" spit as a quad is the fastest,loosest and most fun board I have ever ridden.
    BUT have not been able to get it going as a thruster, it just gets to the bottom and stops/bogs. And then you cop it.
    Will invest in some more thruster fins, but love is so much as a quad does not matter.
    Put in some FAMT (robber) fins which have larger side fins and a smaller trailer and you'll get the drive to keep powering through your turns.
    If you like them you can buy another trailer fin and run it as a quad too.
    While we're at it, a thruster set up will need more back foot pressure than a quad. Basic I know but I'd be looking at your feet to make sure you're not standing too far forward (especially easy to do on your backhand).

    secret spot
    nobody out
    That was the set of the day, steamrolled thru. Trimaran is a nice way to go surfing

    What about the Hellrazor 6'5" as the stepup?
