I've read the fin setup guide on the site and have done a bit research.
My longboard is a 9' 22" 2 3/4" performance board with 3 small fins. The fins, at least to me, seem a bit crappy. See pictures attached.
I am 5'9 and weight 175lbs.
It moves well, turns well and in the right conditions is great fun. I can't really get the noseriding down as yet, close but no cigar, and do have a bit of trouble in bigger waves. So I'm not sure if it's me not fully committing or maybe if a change of fin setup might help me catch more waves when it's a bit bigger.
I'm an advanced intermediate standard foot, left foot forward. Let's call it that. Been surfing for about 8 years, 3-4 times per month on beach breaks but have surfed points and other types of waves here in South Africa and abroad.
So given the setup I have below, will a 6",7" or 8" center fin help me:
a) Trim better
b) Make noseriding easier
c) Catch more waves when it's bigger.
d) an other advantages?
I understand a larger fin will make it slightly harder to turn but will provide more stability when riding.
So what's your take on these ideas and thanks in advance!
