Hi just picked up a mint cond second hand Hellfire without fins, wasn't sure as to what fins to get so just took recommended fins from guy at surf shop (basically cheap standard set) futures vector 11 F4 347 quad set up.
Had one surf on it yesterday, bit hard to tell how it went as very average conditions 2-3 ft cross/on shore rip bank fat reforms, tried it as a quad, (first ever surf on a quad) but just felt as if i forgot to put my back fin in on a thruster, not sure if i liked the feel, felt as though wasn't drawing a proper turn, more of a flick, so i took the two smaller fins out and put one in the rear as a thruster set up, still felt as it was missing something as though the back fin was to small, although waves got worse so hard to really tell.
Obviously I will give this quad thing more of a go and looking foward to getting it in better waves, the board did go fast as i have read and volume felt perfect paddled and caught waves great.
Would really love any recomendations on fins to use as either a Quad or Thruster set up?
Waves where i live are mostly waist to head high fun peeling wally kind of waves, often fat and rarely hollow from take off to pull out.
