Short, small wave boards made right can actually be used in better waves as well . Just up the fin size on a thruster, or add a trailer to your favourite twin, that's why we think the two plus set up, is a great way to make that twin fin a touch more versatile.
"Or even stick with a good old thruster set up". Like on this "Squashed" down Savage prototype (coming soon). Just add a bigger template when you are surfing a wave with a bit of power for extra hold out of your turns.
