  • Future Fin Recommendations for PN?

    Hello again Firewire Forum Advisors,

    Any fin recommendations for a 5'2" PN? I'm 48yr, 5'7", 150lbs, beach break, grom.

    Thank you,
    Best regards,
    & Keep on rippin

      As a quad, I really like the Rastovich signature fins. As a thruster, I agree with Phill.

      These are all personal opinions, though, and everyone likes something different. I would highly recommend finding a Futures Fin Tree at a local surf shop and demoing a few fins to see what you like.

        SOLUS thruster for fun days, Clay Marzo quads for speed

          Dudes, Just got Stretchís new S3 fin set (stretch controllers). Itís been two weeks and about 6-7 sessions and these have been the best fins that I have run on the PN (5í6). They are crazy fast right out of the gate, havenít missed a section yet and the back fins give the pivot needed. The s3 fin set creates so much drive itís insane. It looks like itís going to be too much fin but they are so rad.
          Stretch has these fins made by Fins unlimited down in San Diego so you know there is no question about quality (made in America is a plus). Stretch has these fins made for his Buzz models, which have a deep double concave just like the PN. They are like Future controllers but with a better inside custom foil and fuller tip. They are making two sizes for big and small riders. I have been riding stretch fins for a while now but these are the best fins for this type of board with deep double concaves in the tail.
          They are a bit pricey at $120 but after that first pump and you feel the speed, trust me itís worth it. You have to buy from stretch online store because no shops have them yet.

              I tried the Controller quad set in a 5'8" PN. Made it feel like a retro quad. It was sluggish and super loose to me. I put the AM2 in and they were better but made the board track heavy. Finally tried the Rusty R1 5 fin set and used the quad setup. That for me was the one. It made the board loose but under control. It releases good and is snappy. I almost got rid of the board til i tried the Rusty fins.

                #8 Today, 12:12 AM I put my Elevons back in my PN today for the first time in months. It was a waist high clean day. The board was absolutely flying. Added a TMF-1 and that felt really good.

                  I have a 6'4" PN and it works great with Rusty 5 fin as a quad. I had a SA 5 fin quad and it was stiff. The Rusty's made me rethink selling this board. Could go down to a 6'2" though.
