    If they're FCS or Futures you should be able to order them right from the website..

    most shops should have side fins for sale in both futures & fcs, possibly lok-box & a couple other more obscure fin systems if you're lucky. but futures & fcs side bites should be no trouble at all to locate.

    Check the rocker. If it has more rocker throughout, it'll most likely ride good as a 2+1. If it's flatter, particularly in the entry area, it might ride better as a single. This is just one indication of the intent of the design... there are a lot more. But this is a start in determining what the designer had in mind. The simple fact that it's set up for a 2+1 also says something, but sometimes those things are done to get more interest in making a purchase. Rocker, bottom contours, rails, template, and tail tell much more.

    My favorite 2+1 setup is an 8" fiberglass cutaway with sidebites. Center fin in the center of the box to start, then tweak it from there.

    Welcome to longboarding!

    I've got a Wingnut cutaway with my 2+1 setup on a 9'0 HP LB. By far the best setup I've experienced with this board over 12 years playing with fins.

    thanks for the welcome. I didn't think longboarding was going to overtake my shortboarding, but I really like it, and my local break is a much better longboard wave anyway. I just feel bad for everyone else who has to watch me take all the waves
