Does anyone know where I can get my board (that came with fcs plugs) converted to future fins in the south bay area, and how much something like that would cost?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

unless you have the exact perfect Future fins for that board , my $.02 ain't worth it. looking at what maybe $50 to $100 to switch boxes + the risk of compromising the integrity of the board probably just stick with finding the correct FCS fin for less the cost

Doesn't Future make fins with FCS tabs, also?

That would be like converting a Trustafarian to a Scientolist. Go Lok Box.

Not all their fins. A couple of select Vectors and that's it if I remember right.

depending on how much you like the board, you could bring it over to the sweatshop and i could have at it for the cost of the boxes plus a 6 pack of IPA.

i need an excuse to buy a bigger router anyhow

lokbox only though.

if you're hung up on futures, call this ding repair guy in el segundo. never used him, but people i know swear by him.

ryan 310 927 9264

not sure if he'd do it or not. worth a call.

u could also do a loop around to shoreline down in HB by zippi's old shop and mangiagli (sp) that do becker's boards right around the corner.

Ok, thanks... I'll see what I want to do - I might just live with the fcs for now... not sure if it's worth spending the $$$.... the board is a mush buster, and winter is around the corner......
