    I'm 5'9" 140lbs, whats a good fin for my size
    Longboard fins are differnet to shortboard fins . A persons weight is not a factor when choosing a longboard fin. It more the size of the board and what you want to do on the longboard.

    for some one of you size I would get a longboard around 9'0 - 9'4 and a 10 or 10.5 inch fin would work . Either a Pivot Fin or a flex drive fin with a wide base and a big rake with work well with noseriding

    I would get a bigger board with some nice tail rocker and full to semi full rail. I use a 11 inch Pivot fin on my 9'10 and a 10.5 on my 9.8. I keep my fin a half a inch from the front of the fin box. I can trim very easy and work the nose very well .

    heres a good read on nose riding . I helped my tip time alot

    Hey Old Boy, you can still get Bill Stewart to shape you a custom board in San Clemente or Donald Takayama in Oceanside. If you want a good nose riding epoxy board hand shaped and completely finished in the USA check out Tim Nolte down in NC. His shop is about a mile of so before the Wrightsville Memorial Bridge to the Banks. He does it there including the vacuum sealed epoxy skin. Real nice guy to talk surfing with too.

    Tim is the man. Super nice guy and will spend time with you making sure you get the right board and fin set up. Check out his website - videos of him surfing standup paddle in overhead waves !
