    Howzit. do u have futures or fcs? i recently picked up the SA4's in futures and like em a lot. Its a pretty big set of fins. i think i cud've mixed my Panchos w the TS rears and have good results too.if u dont mind me asking, why r u going bigger w a HF? The HR at 6'8 might b a fun choice.

      I had been riding my HF almost predominantly as a thruster until last week. I was on the north shore and didn't have my full range of boards and on a fun (head high+) day at Laniakea went quad on my 6'4" HF.
      I had the FCS SF4 Quad Strech fins and had blast. Most have said that the HF needs a big fin set, and whilst I'm not as experienced as others here in the jedi arts of fin swapping - these did a great job of finding the balance of hold, release, drive etc.

        @Jase- What day did u go to Lani's? I had the VG on tue and wed. Tue was real nice, wed had a lot of texture due to the wind, but it still was fun.

          Yeah, I got Tuesday in the morning before heading home... now back in China :(
          We scored pretty funky winds for a pretty large part of the trip. Was still pretty good, but not epic.

          I didn't see you, I'd for sure remember the VG! :)

            I use FCS R2 quads in mine and I like it a lot. Too much speed when it gets double overhead - change back to R2 thruster.

              I Use futures AM2 Fronts with True Ames TP rears (395's). Heaps of drive and loose enough, but would like to try to R2 rears with it too as they are a bit smaller and would loosen it up even more. Im just too tight to buy any though.

                @jase the winds were funky for some time. ive been surfing the West Side a lot to get the offshores.
                @phrozen the SA quads r real nice. i like the bigger rears. i will definitely b able to run them on my SF, ADD, VG, and any other Quad set up. I'm going to try the knubster today.
