I'm looking for a good set of Future twin + trailer. I really like the Biolos template for my tris if that helps. Any suggestions?


I’m just here to drink some beer and ride high volume boards.

I"m all about quads!
Ridden them for years.
450's in front and 375 out back

Recently, I went 510 twin in front with small little trailer in back and really liked it.

What would goin 510's in front and smaller than 375 in back do me?

Glass FT1s with the glass trailer. I like them better than the VFT1s because the VFT1s are glass flex or whatever the hell that material is called

I've heard good things about the Akila fins too, but have never tried them myself. Supposedly you gain verticality over the FT1s but lose some drive

i've used both and ft1's have more area. definitely more drive but akila's fin is waaay better. plenty of drive and more of a tri fin feeling....but free er. matt "album" parker's board with those fins was magic. that board was just so fast with very little effort.


singles, twins, quads, tris............twins suit me best

It is easy to get too much fin with those big fronts but you want to go smaller

I'm experimenting with the same setup. The problem I am having with it is that I am inconsistent compared to a "normal" quad set up. One wave is great, the next one sucks.

I have found a set up I REALLY like for the board I've been experimenting so I guess I should leave well enough alone but I want to try that set in my board which is on the way....

Fin experimentation is fun

i dont like the material..but the vector ft1 (512) is a bitchin set. the foil gives you a littel extra push out hte back end of your turn. i like that.

This set up has felt so goooooooood!


Stamps is gonna get me some smaller rears to go with the big front fins, so I can ride it as a quad. 512 front with smaller rears........maybe.
