I ordered this board to have a little bit more volume than the stock model and also ordered it as a quad set up. The recommended volume increase didn't seem to get put into place as as it sinks a bit more that my other boards at the same volume level. The board definitely rides fast and loose like a fish, but has the maneuverability of a traditional shortboard. I would say that it has characteristics more like a short board than a fish. I am not so sold on it as a quad set up though. The rail to rail turns seems to have a bit of drag and bite instead of flow when in the quad mode. These are my two complaints about it, other than that it is a fun board that I like to ride in waist high range waves.
