    What fin set up for 6' 0" Sweet Potato

    I purchased a 6' 0" Sweet Potato Rapidfire with Futures fin set up.

    What fins do you reccomend for Intermediate (surf 3-5 times a week), 225lbs, 42 y.o., I will surf local San Diego beach break 2-3 ft with this board.

    Your input would be appreciated
    Thanks!

    Iggy, I am getting a BP..have you tried the Elevons in that? I would think they would work if they work in the SP and PN...

    Bigger potatoes require bigger fins IMO.
    I tried the Solus with quad trailer on my potato and it felt kinda slow. It almost feels like the V foil on the fins is countering the double concave on the bottom.

    The best setup so far that I've tried are Jordy L front with any rear trailer bigger than 4" If Large is too big for you, Futures will have S and M Jordys out soon!

    ALOHA!!

    yeah the Solus fins with the leading side bites and a quad trailing set is a favorite in house here as well...

    Hey Chris can you break this setup down for me (above)... I'm not comprehending this one...Thanks!

    I've been riding a 5'6 SP fst for a month now. I use the controllers for knee high to 4 feet and I use the Simon Anderson quads for 4-6 feet. The controllers are not squirrely even for a 50 year old 170 pound intermediate. The large SA's just give you better hold when it's bigger. Just remember you ride this board off your back foot. It's really fast until you get used to the speed so don't be surprised if you feel like your trying to catch up to your board the first day you ride it... Just relax and enjoy catching every wave you try for!

    I'm about 90kg in the wetsuit, 5'11", and 60 yr old.
    Surf about 3-4X weekly winters, nearly every day in summer.
    Had to order the board (in California)... worth the wait!

    A good set

    I've had a 6'2" for awhile and like this combo: scimitar quad <http://www.futuresfins.com/fin-detail.php?similarfins=true&id=155> w/ the longer pivots <http://www.futuresfins.com/fin-detail.php?similarfins=true&id=155>. The board's a bit squirrely for an older guy, but it SCREAMS once it's on a rail!
