    If it's the fins, contact Future and maybe you can sort it out with customer service.

    make sure theres no extra glass or resin hanging over in the top edges of the fin box....if there is take a razor and gently scrape the inside edges of the boxes until the fins go it....i had to do this once.

    I've had the same problem... There's two different base depths. I didn't feel like going back to the shop, so i took a table saw a shaved 1/8" off the bottom. The shop should help you out though.

    Look closely at the rear boxes if they have X's in the front near the grub screw you need the 1/2 base rears. Did they sell you the fins with the board?

    the back ones have x's and the front ones have f's and the fins they gave me did not come with the board but they are crappy 25 dollar fins but 2 of them are big and 2 of them are small. doess it matter if the front ones go in the back or the front?

    The bigger ones go in the front and you need to buy a quad specific set with the 1/2" rears. Support your local shop if they have what you want or they can special order it if they are willing. If you dont have shops close by try ebay.
