Ross! Hey man, welcome. Rad sled.
hey Ross nice work man!
if you want the board to ride like a log with pivoty turns go with something like a 9.5 Heritage or Takayama MTP if you want it to be carvy a 9.75 4a if you want to split the difference try a 10" Farberow flex, Slick noserider or Miss Lucy
Thanks for the help guys. I'm totally into expanding my longboard fin collection. The right fin can really make or break it; the wrong fin can turn a great board into a dog, or bring to life something really mediocre . Its heartbreaking to ride a self shaped stick for the first time and have it suck, so I hope to get it right. Im going for a carvy ride, where I dont have to jam all the way on the tail to cut back. My wife saw me fawning over fins for the past week and surprised me yesterday with a 9.5 velzy classic. it looks cool, but really narrow, maybe better for a day with a little juice? The cali classic looks pretty good on the board and think it will be a good starting point. Hope to get it wet tomorrow!
Califorina Classic looks good - I missed that it is a pintail.
Very cool!! Good luck sorting it out.
Your username makes me start hummin Beastie Boys every time i see it now..
Yeah One of my Favorite Beastie Tunes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i like my rides loosy goosy hence the velzy
Very nice work.Congratulations!!
Where in RI are you located?
Can't go wrong with a big ass 4a, if you want speed and easy to turn.
Or put a hatchet if you want the opposite.
Agreed between the Cal Classic and Velzy you should be sorted. If you want to split the difference between the two try a 4A. I run a 9” 4A in a 9’4” pintail and it works great for cruising.
Only other advice is to get a wonder bolt if you don't already have one. Easy to change fin location without getting out of the water. Although a tight fin in good size surf makes things interesting... paddle in or lose the bolt.
