I'm getting a bit old now (51) so I've finally bitten the bullet and traded in my shortest shortboard (6'8) for a McTavish F4 SLX. I LOVED my 6'8" when I was actually riding it, but found it harder and harder to pick up waves due to my lack of paddle power. It had a quad setup and I used either TC Redlines with GX-Q rears, or a PC7 quad set. I really like the TC redlines on my 6'10" thruster.
I've resisted going to a longboard as long as possible, but they seem to get a LOT more waves than I do at my local famous Sunshine Coast pointbreak. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...
So now I've got this McTavish 9'1" F4 SLX that I want to run as a quad because it 'sounds' like it suits what I want to do on a surfboard - ie; actually catch some waves, throw it around a bit and belt it down the line when needed. (I have no desire to noseride.) Trouble is, I can't find any information on the 'net for the optimal quad fin setup.
I haven't even seen the F4 yet as I'm overseas at the moment (Samoa) and a friend is storing it for me. I'll be home hopefully in May. I THINK it comes with a 6" centre fin with GX-Qs up front. (I'll have 3 pairs of GXQs now...)
So could anyone tell me what fcs quad setup they use on their 9'1" longboard?
Any hints on transitioning from a short board to a battleship would be appreciated too.
Thanks in advance.
