Heel side fins only

Try it. I found the board to feel a lot more loose. Better in the waves allowed me to slide it out. Goes upwind just as good. Board rides better with 2 heal side fins only in my opinion.

Heel side fins only from now !!!


Than tried no fins. Way to slippery on my 130 brokite :roll:

STF you bum. I got spare fins, next time I see you - what, in three years? - hopefully I'll have em on me.

Henry I did this but toeside riding sux without fins...I would suggest going with smaller fins for the same effect and still getting locked in on the cameltoeside
