i dont have money for another board, so i wanted to get a good pair of fins. Dimensions on my board are 6 4 x 19 3/8 x 2 1/4, its a big wave, big guy board, and im not surfing anything over 8 ft and i only weigh 170. i wanted to make it more maneuverable/looser. Any ideas? I was thinking of making it a twin fin setup on smaller days to make it more slidey, is that a good idea? Any answers would be appreciated!!
smaller center fin is a good starting point...go down 1 size from what you're riding now (ie: if you're using M-7's, drop an M-5 into the center box.
but i agree that the board seems to be a bit big for you. you describe it as a "big wave, big guy" board, but you say you weigh 170 & won't be surfing anything much over head high. i'd say you, at most, want something in the 6'1"-6'2" range.

yeah...i do agree that i need a new board, but most places down lbi right now arent open cause of sandys damage... i think getting a new board, maybe a 6' 1 firewire flexfire is gonna be my best bet, or a 6'2 psycho ward from ...lost. I need a board that is good from knee to head high, definietly not my 6' 4
