It will certainly make your board perform very differently.

Much more so than just the quad/thruster combination - which are quite similar - whereas when you compare either of those to the single+ options the performance difference is huge.

And then there's also a very significant difference between the dolphin style singles and the more upright starfin/gull wing/spitfire fins.

You'll never be bored with your board that's for sure

On face value this sounds appealing, ie, have the one board in the travel bag/car and muck around with the fins to suit the conditions.
Anyone got one? Thoughts?
You will disappear down a rabbit hole of experimenting and end up confused, second guessing which setup is better/worse. IMHO.

Not to mention spending $$$$$ on fins. I'm a reformed multi fin box player arounder. If you're surfing a lot in similar waves I think it's fun and can be helpful but I often ended up confused about which was better/worse.

it's nice to dial in some fins.

Haven't surfed the finless yet. Too much uncrowded high performance surf happening the last couple days.

I saw one of those on the site a few days ago. High volume all rounder. His boards are refined so that would be sweet as

For that board make an exception re fin boxes!!

That outline is pretty similar to the waterskate... that's it... putting the box in asap.

Picked up my new board after work yesterday.
Waxed it up and stuck a pad on it after the kids went to bed.
Surfed it before work in oily 3ft cronulla point this morning.
Paddles great, rails are refined enough for me to bury easily. Rocker is much improved from my last board.
Stuck the large FCS AM2 fins in.
Surprised myself the quality of some of my turns this morning.
I'm making the magic stick call early on this one.
Stoked.
