I was recently in Hawaii and found some time to get a session in at Ala Moana bowls on a clean head high day. When I am in a place other than home, I seem to pay close attention to the details of everything. All the new sights, sounds, and smells. What I found interesting at Ala Moana was the percentage of Quads in and out of the water. There was a contest, and the lawn in front of the contest zone was littered with Quads waiting for their heat. The Quads fully outnumbered the tri-fins by at least 5:1. The shorter and wider trend was also being fully embraced. Performance Quads seem to have made quite an impact on Oahu's south shore bowls.
The question is; will the summer of 2010 see a similar deployment of performance Quad shapes take to the water in Southern California?
A hurricane swell is in full swing right now...so what ever you have, get out and ride it.
