becoming an owner of a wonderful 6.4 dom fst,ive only shortly been in contact with quad fin sets. i never used them or even heard of them in my last 7yrs of surfing.
what i would like to know is pretty much everything about them. yes i know they are faster and hold better than thrusters,but what i would love to find out is how they work together as a group. there are 100000s of combinations but not 1 website explaining how a more swept back front fin will work with an upright rear fin for example...
i bought myself a 5 fin SF4 stretch set and am enjoying them totally,but dont have the wisdom to judge if i need bigger or more upright fins etc.
ofcourse this has to do with experience and time on the water, but im dont have the possiblility to just buy and resell fins like most people do...
so my questions.
larger=more hold= stiffer board?
smaller=less hold= skatey feel?
upright= pivoty= less drive=bad for big waves?
swept back= stiff= alot of drive= good for big waves?
how do they corelate with one another? what if i take big fronts and small rears? the opposite? what about swept front and straight back? vice versa?
ive had such an amazing performance boost using the Dominator and would love to progress my surfing not only physically but technically(science side) even more.
i hope im not confusing anyone :P
