  • Tomo fins

    Some of the glassed in fins that Tomo shaped for his boards are pretty radical looking, so I'm wondering how more conventional fins go in these things.

    I figured I may as well start a thread on the topic as questions are being asked in the other threads but having it all in one place will make the information a bit easier to find.

    What have you tried and what are your experiences?

    Yeah i actually think your normal performance hybrid fins are best. From what I have uncovered, the board rips as a thruster and I love using my EAs as a thruster and stretch as a quad. I would estimate that i ride it as a thruster 75% of the time...

      My V2FEA Blackstix are ready and waiting!

      Been surfing the MN as a quad the last couple of days. Feels really, really good.

            I ordered an FCS version but I'd be surprised if they didn't have a futures version.

            Don't know why but I'm thinking an FCS AM2 (medium size) thruster set will be my first experiment. I think they will be good, the G-AM (large size) are good but I don't think this board will need large fins - I could be terribly wrong there but time will tell.

                        After much experimenting I'm using my favourite quad fin set (FCS Rusty R2) in both my VG and V4. Go like a rockets, turn wherever, whenever you want.

                          Thanks for sharing Slowman. I ride it with Futures, but I know exactly where you're coming from - it's always such a great feeling when you find that magic setup!
