FCS Performer PC carbon. I have the size small in my Chilli Mini Bird small wave board and they work great. They also used to work great in my Diverse 5' 8" HPSB/step up. The carbon should make them good for bigger surfers too - low noodle factor. I reckon size large would be best for you, particularly for a summer small wave board. They have a cambered inner/stringer side.

Awesome. I think I'll pull the trigger. Super have a free (thruster) set of their fins with every board purchase at the moment as well which makes the deal even sweeter.

Just wondering... should I just go for a thruster set or a 5 fin set? Does this board go best as a quad or thruster?

it was mediocre as a quad and magic as a thruster with the superbrand large thrusters. google search real watersports fling

trip foreman was spot on. my boar became magic after the thruster fins. am large felt like too much fin and i really couldnt get a quad set to work.

Grab the 5 fin set, I loved it as a quad and didn't like it as a thruster.

ha ha ha ha love it.

Yeah I'll grab the 5 fin set. I'm expecting it to ride it as a thruster though as I'm not a massive quad guy unless the rears are set closer to the stringer (McKee placement?).

Thanks guys

Get the NEO GLASS Performer, they are good for small waves, no need at all to go carbon PC. It s a recommendation from FCS when I was looking for fins for my rocket v3. They re cheaper and they are amazing in small medium size.

Thanks for the tip. At this stage I'm getting a free tri fin superbrand set so I'l stick with those and see if I can find a set of neo glass performers on gumtree. I've ridden the large neo glass performers before in small waves and they seemed ok

bugger. Have you had a diagnosis? I used to have a bad back, but been fine for well over 5 years now. I did get rehab and still do core strength exercises.

Yeah a bulged disc and pinched nerve. It happened before a couple of years ago. It's a standard story - did core strengthening stuff for a year after the last disc issue then promptly forgot about it. Time to get back into it!

I had a total of 6 disc incidents over a period of about 4 years. Each time I would tweak my back almost all of them from either surfing or skating and could hardly walk for a couple of days. Then after about a week back on board, but experienced twinges and general aches in between incidents. Does this sound anything like your incidents?

I was told likely cause was a bulged disc. All fixed up now, touch wood.
