  • Future fins on the chubby

    Haven't tried the wct's, but I can guarantee you this: the CC + the Machado's = gold.

      Hey Josh what fins do you like in your other boards? Do you swap the machados out for a bigger stiffer fin when the surf gets solid? I recall you said you like the rasta quad in baked potato for small wave shredding...

        Correct. When it gets bigger, I've been really liking the large Jordys.

          So a rule of thumb is in juicier surf you want a bigger, stiffer flat foiled fin?! Do you ever ride a quad on any boards in bigger surf?

            Yes. You need the stiffness to counteract the faster moving water. Otherwise you're more likely to slip out on a top turn or cutty. Personally, I only ride thrusters in bigger surf. I'm a traditionalist in that sense. I only use quads in 1-3ft surf, but that's just me. Other guys may like the four fin setup, but I find myself outrunning the wave if it's bigger and I'm on a quad.

            If you're still riding a wide tailed board in larger surf then bigger stiffer fins are the call. If you're riding a knifey rounded pin in waves with plenty of power you don't need a lot of fin area and the board is going to hold in and the wave is supplying the speed. You just want a bit of control in those situations.
