For sale is my 75L RRD lightweight limited edition Wave Cult Quad from year 2011. This has been great board to ride in waves and strong winds. When I brought it, it had only been used 4 times by the previous owner and was in as new condition. I’ve used it maybe a dozen times and always kept it in a board bag so it’s still in excellent condition. There is a small chip on the nose and I’ve just had a very minor repair done to the tail where the previous owner had knocked it in a car park.
It comes with the original footstraps and all 4 fins.
The dimensions are 238x56
Here’s a review form Surfladle.
The Quad 75 planes and accelerates well for a waveboard. It has better grip and is more directional than a twin fin, but still feels like a multi-fin board in that it sits more in the water and there is little or no lift from the fins (as you would get with a single fin). The ride is very smooth and controlled and it handles chop very well. The Quad 75 also storms upwind. I had on onshore session at Wittering with a friend who was riding a twin and it was very noticeable how much higher the Quad 75 pointed on the way out. A big plus for getting out in onshore conditions and getting upwind to catch waves.
So far I have sailed the Quad 75 with both 4.7 and 4.2 m2 sails. On one of the 4.2 days I was overpowered and eventually had to give up as I could not hang on to the sail, however the board itself remained very well behaved. So it appears to have very good top end control and should handle a 3.7m2 sail without any problems. Another session on a 4.7m2 was gusty with the wind shifting direction (so much that I ended up sailing on both tacks in the same session!) and I was surprised how well the Quad maintained it’s speed during the lulls.
I’m happy to send more pictures if you require them, or answer any questions.
