The Quad Fin Seared Ahi is our most popular model because it performs regardless of wave conditions. It's for shortboarders who are bigger or those who want to transition from a longboard/funboard. The Seared Ahi has a great feel, and is extremely versatile. We even have a customer who used it to tow into triple overhead surf in Mentawais!. If you can only take one board, this one is it. The Seared Ahi also comes in a thinner (2 3/4") epoxy version.
