Marcilio Browne: “I’ve been riding the Thruster a few times now and got a great fun feeling from it. It pivots more than the Quad and this makes a board with more volume seem smaller while turning, especially when on a smaller wave that’s providing less speed. The Thruster is great to go vertical and release the tail.
I enjoy riding the Custom Pro Thruster on days that are a bit more onshore at Hookipa. It carries speed and feels very loose, which allows me to ride more volume on the board and compensate by having a smaller sail which turned out to be a really fun combo.
When Hookipa is mast high and clean, I personally ride a Custom Pro Quad as I feel like it gives me a bit more control while going full speed, digging into the bottom turn and going for big open face carves. But as soon as the days are smaller, and not super offshore, I have been having more and more fun on the Thruster, it’s a new refreshing feeling for me that seems to fit well with smaller and slower waves.”
The Custom Pro Thruster is our all-around waveriding board, less radical than the Custom Pro Quad, but more agile than the One Pro Thruster.
