It's official - The RRD Wave Cult quads are amazing. So much fun today in late afternoon Force 6.
I should have been overpowered but just wasn't, this thing flew and was so nice to slide around on the wave face in the brisk (sub 10 degrees) North Westerly !

This Quad fin beauty came through the post yesterday, and I just had to give it a baptism in the north westerly early this a.m..  It felt about as directional as a single fin to point up wind, plane etc. but what amazed me was how it felt on the wave face. These things are incredible to turn, as loose as a twin fin, but somehow felt quicker. I will try and critique in more detail when I get the chance, but in the meantime if you get a chance to try, I totally recommend it.

Its been a pretty amazing weekend, and the wind seems set to continue at least for the next day or so. BST means evenings after work are an entirely new opportunity. Despite the temperatures being pretty cold for mid may, I have reverted back to my winter suit, and had some of the best cross onshore conditions tonight, since ever. Big thanks to the guys at SeaSprite for sorting me out with a new RRD 92 Wave Cult quad, I have loved the RRD Wave Freestyle 90 but it wasn't to be.

I don't think there is any place I would rather be when the sun shines in North Devon.  It somehow feels like the Gods are smiling, and whatever crap is happening elsewhere it just doesn't matter.
