I like tri fin, but when you are more technical in fin placement, ie a trailer then its not so descriptive.

a photo is worth more

Yes, the quads feel faster on the wave face. Especially if you can give the board a little wiggle pump. Crazy acceleration.

Yeah, that little "wiggle the board by heel-toe pumping the back foot"
isn't to useful on a single-fin board, but it's definitely the trick to getting
a quad to just take off.

Surfers call that wiggle pump "gyrating". Sounds a bit better doesn't it.
