I have a 6'0 puddle jumper.Was advised to ride it as a quad.Tried it and hated it.Im now using a large set of thruster fins.
Has anyone tried this board with twin fins + trailer?

Have ridden it as twin + trailer and it was good frontside. How big are you? I've had 2 of them and the second one was only .5L over my performance volume and was much more enjoyable. The first one was... weird. Also consider split keels.

Merrick Twins and controller rears (quad) work really well in the Bottom Feeder. Would assume might also work in PJ. Haven't ever tried just the Merrick Twins plus trailer but worth shot (the set comes with a small trailer).

I am your ht and wt plus 10lbs. My PJ was 43 liters and the only fins I liked were Roberts large thruster with V2 foil. The lighter blue version w/ more flex. Not the newer ones. Hard to find now.
2nd best set was same fronts with roberts quad trailers 80/20 foil. I tried many set ups.
I believe the vector f8 blackstix thrusters would also be good. Needs drive and flex to grovel that board.
