  • FCS Thruster recommendation

    I'm looking for a good set of fins that would work on a 5'10 Potatonator. I usually ride it as a quad, but I'm looking for some stability once it gets overhead. With that said, I would also like for them to work on smaller waves. Thanks!

    What quad set are you using? It might depend a bit on your answer but for that size and style I'd be looking at R2, G-AM, MF1 fins in a thruster.

      I'm currently riding Large H-3 fronts with Gx rears.

      For those riding the Potatonator as a thruster, please tell me your setup and how it rides.

      Cheers

        I started out riding mine as a quad but found I prefer it as a thruster in chest to shoulder high and up especially if the wave is steeper or hollow I started with GMB 5's which I find are pretty good next I tried Kinetik racing JP 5's but they are a little to directional above chest high

          Hey Jleon,

          I am thinking that you should also consider going with 2 sets of fins. In my opinion, a fin set that would anchor that board in overhead surf would be much different from the set that you rock hen its a fair bit smaller.



          If it were me, i would be on a stable thruster like the PC-5s and then a quad like the SF4 when its smaller. That way you exploit the benefits of your fins rather than force them into conditions they aren't optimized for.



          Cheers

              Has anyone tried MR-TFX twin+trailer setup on the Potatonator and can give a comparison vs quads?

                Rode it as a quad in overhead and like people said before, its all technique. I have been doing a lot of training with a Carver/Smoothstar skateboards and mu backfoot surfing is confident enough for the bigger waves in a quad. It only took a month of training.

                  Jleon, I think it depends on the type of wave too. You can definitely ride bigger if the wave is slow and slopey.

                  ALOHA!!
