Steve is cool, and I'll be buying another board from him someday. The guys up at Delta got me riding Exocet in the 1st place, and I stop in there once every summer to buy something. Both great places to buy gear.

I was a little disappointed I got the single fin model, however, now that you mention it, I love it. We've got kelp issues that make it 3 times more problematic in the spring. If I put a larger fin on, I'll be going over the handlebars way too much. Laughing

much as i don't like them, i'd explore a wave weed fin, perhaps? pay attention to surface areas. sometimes they get just too ginormous when just looking at depth/length.

Hey Steven, I just found this discussion thread. Really funny because the same thing happened to me with my X-wave 101. I bought the board through Jean in SF and it came as a single fin! not sure what the back story is to why that occurred. I was frustrated by the mistake, but I decided to go with it and just use as single fin. I have been loving the board. Just as you described with the 111. I may get an 81 as a compliment, and I'll make sure to get the thrusters on that one Smile
Ben

At least we're both happy with the boards Ben! Do you find the 101 rides more like a 95? My 111 rides like a sub-100 liter board. My board has "pro" written on it. Does yours? I'd be interested to see if the thrusters have pro written on them too.

I was told this was a special batch of single fins to see if people like them.

hi Steve, my board does feel like a smaller board! I rode it yesterday in small waves and a 5.0 sail. Lots of other guys were on 85 liter/4.7 combos. I felt great and never out of control. I would like to try the 91 or 81 too!
My board doesn't say pro on it by the way. send me a picture of your board if you have time. thanks!

So, My mistake, the box that it came in said "Pro". Here's the photos.
