Keen to try either the electric keels, or their version of the MR fins - or possibly the K2. Kpd73 is spot on - this board has a great range! From knee high junk to well overhead. Highly recommended and such a positive experience compared to the state of the art lost puddle jumper poc i spent winter on.


I've been liking my RTT with the Aipas too. Had my first session with the Sea Shepherds, but the Aipas have been stuck in since. May give the Sea Shepherds another go this weekend...

Man, so at 150 you are finding the Aipas too stiff? What fins for someone even lighter than 150?

No! not stiff - both the aipas and amt's are fine, but the board becomes quite different with each fin change - so i was keen to try some different fins, either semi-keels or the pacey twins for the really big stuff.

Aipas rock shaka

Cool, thanks Bman. I have the Aipas and the K2, will track down AMT's eventually. There seems like a few options out now. The ones you posted from Shapers (sold out) and I'm liking the Stussy model from True Ames. New board, no time.

Yeah - board is really sensitive to fin changes - looking forward to some semi-keels for some nice big open faces.

Put AMT twins with the really small trailer center fin into a 6'2 Simon Spudster. Worked well and was surprised at how loose it still was considering how large they are. Could not get much drive around sections though. Put in a center fin from a Yu medium set I have. Seemed to work pretty well in shoulder high surf. Point being... don't be scared of their size, they still allowed the board to be plenty loose.

The AMT's are the biz because of that pivot.
I just cut down a set of MRtx FCSII in the same foil.
That fin was originally only for the Robber from CI. Such a good fin for my wide tailed pigs


face the mirror...

I've had a great time with the full AMT set in my Nano. I never thought they'd work with that tail. I chucked them in one afternoon when morning HH chunky beachies turned into thigh/waist high burgers as the tide filled in and I was caught without a groveller. They work in good waves too. Had a blast in HH Snapper/Greenmount tunnels, super fast and turn tight in the pocket (I usually opt for Jordy Larges in those waves though).

What I've been using in a few fishy boards is AM2's with an AMT trailer.
Very rippy.

Here's an option for those that want a bit more fin but don't want to go to a keel fin. I bought a twinny while on the Gold Coast recently. The shaper recommends running the K2 or Rasta Keels but I only had AMT's with me so I ran with those. Even though it was obvious they just weren't enough fin I did like the pivot the upright template provided. Now I could be wrong but I found there wasn't really an option in the futures range for a twin with a bit more area unless I went to a keel fin (don't seem to have the Future en twins in Aus?) A bit of googling and a couple emails and I found these Salty Merchants upright twins. Apparently similar to the bigger MR78 twins with a few tweaks.

They go great. No drifting/sliding when pushing on bottom turns like the AMT's. A heap more flex though so they suit smaller conditions. I was originally going for the Electric semi keel but after giving Lachy some board specs he suggested these for daily duties up to 4ft and the Electric semi keel for overhead conditions.
Grabbed the board on my last walk around on the weekend in 3-5ft (6-10ft faces) for shits and giggles and they went surprisingly well but I'll typically be reaching for another board in those conditions.

good stuff - what board? I'm riding some AMT's in something at the moment and have been looking at Salty's fins - he has some nice ones.
