Hi All ,
after a bit of your vast wisdom here , got myself a tiny 5'8 fish for small mushy waves , in 78 kgs and currently have fcs g'3 s in it but find them to lack drive and speed anyone have any suggestions on what would be more suitable fins for speed / drive in small waves , old school fcs plugs in the board tri fin .
help would be greatly appreciated .

Need a review on a normal board.
Nice MD. Looks like a General Motors Holden logo on it.
Does anyone have any experience/ thoughts on Scarfini fins? I have never tried them but am interested to know if they are any good?

Caml if youre out there - you mentioned a long while back about 4wfs and the fins bases possibly being a weak spot
Hers some of Jeds solid glass ones
udo, what size do you reckon for a quad set up in C-Drives? Normally I ride L. But watched noel do a review on em, the boys recommended he should've tried the mediums. I've a fluctuating weight issue ranging from 86-90 kgs
Medium i reckon -
Never used to be a problem to swap over to M with Troy if Large were to stiff.
Large is a big fin for Noel - Brutus is your man here him and RcJ are c-drive specialists - 2-60ft.
if you use C-drives , get the smallest .....S on the sides , XS rear quads.....that's what we use......we are actually wondering if even smaller would be better.....Naked Viking /USA....
Hi Brutus. What size waves is that for?
Do you suggest going smaller in a thruster set up too?
Cheers fellas, FYI waves I’d normally be riding 2-6 ft , so y’all still reckon small front and extra small in the back ?
yeah RCJ and I use small thruster size, and we are both 90kgs....same with gun Quads, Noah Johnson who is 5' 3 60 kgs.......uses XS on all his guns from 8 0 > 10 ' 6".....plenty of drive with the long fin base.....
I just realized that the sizes we use are for my boards , where I have always used smaller fins because of the edges and concaves , giving you drive and lift so that's why us "Chunky Monkeys" can ride very small fins....less drag/more speed!
yep use small and xs.....if you can't get the drive , it's probably in the design of your surfboard!
Cheers Brutus . Legend

Simon Anderson had some input into the design and Brutus has tried them....Brutus ?
