    Where to get these fins...

    IMG951237.jpg Looking to put a single fin in the 6-7" range on this. its a 7'1". if you have any other input on a recommended fin design that would be good.

    FCS's website... might be able to find a large fin... not sure if they make a 6" or 7" fin with their thruster fin plugs though...

    no idea why you want to do what you are asking though.... but good luck.

    I wouldn't recommend riding that board as a single fin, as far back as those trailer FCS plugs are.

    For that board to function properly as a single fin, the fin would have to be several inches forward of that spot.

    This statement is on point. Fin plugs are way to far back to ride as a single. you'll have no control.

    Gaff, speaking of fins, what's your take on those Edge Core fins kicking around SoCal on the cheap?

    seems less fun than every other board i've tried*

  10. patgeds22, easy solution--

    Take the board to your local glass shop and have them pop a center fin box just forward of the rear plugs. It would put the box at around 6" up from the tail which might be a touch too far for a 7'1", but if you put the fin all the way to the back of the box, you should get a pretty good feel.

    Added bonus--you still have the rear plugs to convert it back to a thruster when mood/conditions call for it.
