I recently changed to thruster after using quad with my deep since new... I must admit I'm liking it much better..took me a few surfs to get used to but find I am keeping my speed through my turns much better.. The quad setup I found was fun to throw the tail out but stalled me too much not allowing me to slingshot back to the foam....I'm gonna keep the thruster for now I think...
I found my minion stalled every now and then throwing out the tail, and had to paddle like crazy to get it moving again, but that is half the fun.
Not so much with this beast. Don't get me wrong, if it gets up there i'd rather be out there with 3 fins. I don't own my own wave pool.
We are all learning
Even the good guys are with new shapes fi set ups etc etc
Good feeling when you start sticking big turns and surfing in the pocket more
All about transitioning your feet from rail to rail and your weight from back to front etc etc
Every wave is different
