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 .

Can’t say I have but reckon that’s a bargain.

Yeh, and if you are close enough to any of the stores can select free pickup and save the $16.99 shipping fee.

I’ve bought fins and boards from sideways. No probs with fins unless you hate discount prices. No probs with boards either even when you take into account differing quality. 500 give or take for a board that lasts a few years. No local shaper etc I know but sometimes rest of life expenses take precedence

Lostdoggy. Hi. I always buy Modom pads and accessories. Good prices.

When you think about it, we are all or have been guilty of being blinded by the light, all the very over priced manufacturers and vendors are getting their shit made in exactly the same place as Modom, so why prop up those so called big names just for the glory of having’their’ moniker on ‘your’ board, doesn’t make cents at all.

Keylock is ok, if ya use them...but that tail pad is worth ten bucks...

For around 70 bucks on a slow boat from China,buys a SUP replacement grip...the end with heel pad fits most boards, but may have to trim slightly on a very narrow tail.

The rest of the SUP grip can be cut to size, probably do 5+ boards if you are only doing tails....I do half a board.

These will be interesting, I have two sets(different sizes) of the old 3/2 series...they go well.... these following along from FCS H4.

Be keen to try them, those H4's are excellent in critical overhead waves although I don't have many boards with FC2 boxes
