The Mid6 range has been designed to give maximum mid-length performance in all wave types. The fine, round pin tail, curvy plan shape, smooth rocker, with a bit of nose flip is equally comfortable turning deep in the pocket or long open-face arcs. High nose rails through to mid tucked and low hard in the tail, foiled from the centre for a nice balance of drive through sections while maintaining hold through tight turning arcs. While the Mid 6 fires in everyday surf, it is tuned enough to handle some pretty serious surf comfortably.
The Mid6 is currently available in 3 sizes. Smallest being a 7'0 x 20 1/2 x 2 5/8 at 40.3L and the largest is a 7'10 x 21 1/4 x 2 3/4 at 50.6L. The 7'6 in between at 21 x 2 3/4 and 47.9L I wouldn't say is a direct scale between the 7'0 and 7'10. It shares all the same performance attributes but has a much larger rail size for someone who wants more volume out wide.
I feel Billy has blended the 6 channels perfectly. They are not so aggressive that they track in turns at all. It’s very easy to break a line or adjust your arc length anywhere on the wave’s face. With the channels balanced between your feet, when you push hard through a turn the response is immediate and the acceleration throughout is like no other board I have ever owned. It definitely breaks the channel bottom stereotype that they're only good in clean waves. I'm loving it in everything!
Either a thruster or quad fin setup works with six channels for a positive feel. My first recommendations for thrusters would be the FCS2 large Reactors or large H4 - though far and away, I have been enjoying the Mid6 as a quad. My go to sets have been the large Reactor sides with Reactor medium rears or large Accelerator fronts with Performer medium rears. I do really like my XL quad set in the Mid6 particularly on weaker days when I prefer&
