Hey All, use my Firewire email, firstname.lastname@example.org for emergency issues, not my forum inbox. However, please avoid contacting me directly with questions on choosing a board, just use the glorious forum. Cheers!
The Deviant is a really fun fin actually, especially back hand. If I was surfing a left point I'd use it for sure. It really tightens up my backhand bottom turn/top turn combo and help me to stay tighter in the pocket instead of ending up a little more on the shoulder. I didn't like the feel when pumping frontside though, it had that twinny drift sort of feeling as I transitioned between pumps. I definitely tightens up those arcs though!
I must try mine in my sub. I tried it on the PN but I don't like the PN as a thruster. I felt the excess drag in the weaker surf.
I did find the turning radius was reduced but need to try in waves with more juice.
