Quad board review | Shaper, Ryan Lovelace

Approx. 5'8"x 19 1/2" x 2 3/4", result is a good board in various conditions, fast, excellent drive, and good release. At first, the board had too much drive in my opinion with the given fin set up although once downsizing the upper front fins to "standard" thruster sides, the board worked really well for me. At first glance, the bottom appears to have some slight vee or flat entry, transitioning to concave around front foot, and going to slight spiral vee in the tail. It was inspiring to discuss general board design with Ryan and hear about his admiration for this specific design, crediting master shaper Neal Purchase Jr.
