  Retract
  Posted by: rjd9999 on Nov-01-12 3:56 AM (EST)
 

At least, that is my opinion.

For a lot of reasons, I'm not a big fan of rudders, but then, I haven't used anything more recent than the ones commonly found on boats 20+ years ago when I first started paddling. Reliability was a problem most of them had back then (they often seemed to hang up, deploy accidentally, or just otherwise not be usable when you'd want them since the retraction/deploy system was unreliable).

I'm sure the designs are better now, but even with a better design, they just aren't really useful in surf.
