  • 5'8" Potato-nator fins help.

    Hello all,
    I just got the 5'8" potato-nator and was wanting to know a good quad fin setup. I usually dont ride quads but want to start on this board, i weigh 145lbs and am 5'6". The board has future fin setup i am surfing in North Carolina so most of the time the waves here all small and mushy. We do good days every so often.

          Thanks for the help might see if i can try and demo some of those fins. Have any of you tried out that surfboardwarehouse.com? I guess for 10 bucks a month you can demo as many fins as you want, kinda like netflix for surfers. Do the Rastas and controllers have pretty good stabilty? I know some fins on quads can get pretty lose on bigger waves. Thanks again

                If you can beg borrow or steal to get a set of Elevons..do it. They are THE best fins IMO for that board...dont ask me why thought...cause I have no clue.

                    What set would work for a truster setup in the p-nator?
                    At:
                    83kg
                    3 to 5 foot waves
                    All conditions
                    Progressing to intermidiate ability

                    Cuttle you were/are surfing your p-nator as a truster right?

                      Something large. Maybe the large Simon set? I think cuttlefish goes the the Merrick twin (FAM?) and trailer set.

                        87Kgs and have the SOLUS on mine, love those fins up to chest high, for anything over that I go for the AM2, otherwise the board squirts out of the bottom turns and it does not give me enough drive while doing roundhouses

                            The elevons really do work well in the PN but I found you need good shoulder + punchy waves for the fins to work as intended. in small surf the fins really don't feel much different than my Josh Malcoy setup. I just got the Clay Marzo quad tech flex fins in my v2 rocket and those fins kicked ass in small waves (2-3ft faces) it felt like there was a motor on the tail.
