Hey everyone,

I just recently stumbled upon a Mandala Tri Plane Hull in 5'11 with glassed on side bits. It has a center box, but came without a fin. Any advice what would be best here?

Thanks,

Sebastian

Probably will be fine, but theres a lot of personal preference depending on how wide the tail is, how big the side bites are, some people prefer the smallest fins they can get away with, some prefer bigger

+1. See a lot of 4As on boards he posts. His custom side bites also have a similar template to the 4A.
How wide is the tail and how big are the side bites? 7 with the side bites should be good. If the tail is super wide, then maybe 8.
