  • Best fins for Unibrow 6'4 (+)

    Hi. I'm 28 yo. Beginner/Intermediate (closer to intermediate). Weight: 70kgs. Height: 175cm.
    Just bought a Tembertek Unibrow 6'4 with "Futures".
    Now thinking about buying the fins for that nice board. What would be your recommendations? What do you ride?
    It's kinda impossible to test futures where i live, so your advice would be very useful.
    Kind regards, Nikolay.

        Before I can guide you in a fin direction, what are the waves like where you surf and do you like quads or thrusters?

          skatephoto how does that board ride for you? too floaty or just right? how's the turning? I'm thinking of getting a Unibrow...can't wait to see what people say about fins to complement it.
          side note: Timmy Reyes has Clay Marzo quad with TMF knubster in his Unibrow. I was thinking of Rusty quad with deviant knubster or AM2 quad with deviant knubster.

          ALOHA!!

            Hi Josh. I prefer to ride mostly Indo waves like Tiger Tracks, Kuta Reef and some Sri Lanka. The size around head - 1,5 head high. I always been riding thrusters, but if you would suggest to use this board with a quad and it will be better i'm into it!

              For waves that size, I would recommend a thruster setup. You will want that center fin to drive off the bottom when you're doing a bottom turn. The quad setup would be better for when the waves are smaller and you need speed. When going thruster, I love the EA Blackstix or Rob Machados. See if there is a Futures Fin Tree at a surf shop in Kuta where you can demo any fin for free - I always recommend doing that before buying a set of fins because everyone has different preferences.

                Hi Everyone - good forum and advice helped me justify purchase of a new 6"8 Unibrow and heading to Maldives with it. Shop has recommended the AM2 Futures Large fins in thruster. Am 92kegs and 6"3. Got a set of Blacksticks thrusters for my existing Addvance and was interested in what fins others are running and assuming thruster is best setup for Maldives with quads for smaller waves back home in Vicco? Thanks.

                  Hi Basscoast frother, my 6'8" Unibrow has Scarfini large in thruster and mediums when in quad. Over 5 foot I set up as thruster and under that maybe quad or some Shaper S5 in thruster or quad for a slightly loose feel. You're a bit heavier than me so I reckon the AM2 will work in the hotdoggie waves in Maldives.
