What size fin are people using on their sunova speed.
I'v got 94's on the three of them. Should I change the middle.
Lots of variables... what size board, how heavy are you, what conditions do you surf, what is your style etc etc. Everyone will have a different opinion.
Just try a smaller one and see if you like it. You'll either like the fact the back is a bit looser, or you'll prefer the extra drive/hold of a bigger fin
Im using the original one on my speed 8.10..dont feel i have reached the kind of control that allows me to play with smaller fins.
8'10" Speeed. 70 kg. Intermediate skill. 62 yo. Beach break up to head high. 4.5" proteck powerflex fins (clear).
For flat water paddling i put I put the stock Sunova 105 fins in and it tracks well. I get some looks from the flat water guys paddling their race boards. One guy passed and said why is your board underwater. It wasn't but I guess it looks that way.
hey sup will.
I don't have the 8.10 speed ,but the 8,10 flow
it has the same fins ...
you will get a bit more performance changing your fins
,so yes go smaller as the original's are quite big ,its the different shapes you get now a days that will make a make the difference .
eg..sharper turns ...more speed ,slidey turning re-entres.
use 105s on the outside and a 94 or 83 in the middle., the 105's are key
I have the 8'10 Acid @120L and it came with the big stock 105 fins. I have tried a few different and smaller flexier fins and they all add a different performance but I just got set of large Maui Fin Co Kai Thrusters and OMG they made an awesome board more awesomer! These are large surf fins and quite a bit smaller than the 105s. Burt has made some comments about using large fins which is what the Acid come with but I always play around with fins as you feel something new and the board reacts differently so learn what a board can do and what feels good for you.
