Ok going out on a limb here, but how about a OR Surf pass it on program? I know a surfboard is more of a pain to ship than a kite, but I would love to try one out before buying…....although I may just splurge.

Here’s a write up of my thoughts with the 5’11 quad-fin after a few weeks on it this winter. It’s more about how I feel the board rides
and where it sits in the market rather than technical info, hopefully will be useful or interesting to some of you smile

Any reviews on the 6’3”, I may be in the market to upgrade. I’m 190 lbs, mostly riding smallish waist to chest high slop. Would the 5’11” or 6’3” work better?

I’m on a 5’10” now, and sometimes have issues staying upwind with it, but it may just be laziness as I get on a couple of waves and just go downwind with them.

Any thoughts?

The 6’3” Ocean Rodeo Quad Surfboard is a thing of beauty. My promise to post some photos will be retracted as the shape appears to mirror that of the 5’11” photos that Dom Moore posted.

I’m thinking of posting a photo of the concave in the fin area, as Dom’s photos do not show the area well, and also a shot from tail to nose or nose to tail in order to illustrate the amount of rocker and nose flip. I will definitely be able to paddle into some waves with it!

The weight of the 6’3” Quad is greater than that exhibited by pure surfboards of similar length. I am NOT concerned whatsoever about the slight extra weight. It is similar in weight to a 6’4” Kane Garden Fish that my brother rides…...if that helps with weight comparisons.
