Bigger side bits and smaller centre works for me.

Isn't the Style Lord some type of long board style of SUP? If that's the case, at least a 9" centre fin with small side bites.

I've used two XL sized sides and a smaller centre on a longboard....great in juicier waves...not so great in small stuff. 9 inch centre and sides a bit much imho. I usually go 7 in the middle...8 at a push....after that 9 or 10 is a single. No right or wrong of course.

Yep. The pro longboarders use 5.5 to 7 centers with small sides.

Old school dedicated noseriding BEEG to sloow that sucker down and not slide out.

As always YMMV!

Th nalu pro 10" excels as a quad, As standard it only comes with quads

I ride my 10x29 stylelord with quobbas as side bites and an 8 inch FCS dolphin centre I took off one of my longboards (the centre smik fin ended up crunched into the top of the garage ). My bigger longboard centre fins don't seem to fit into the smik centre box as it's too deep(?) otherwise I would try them out too.

Definitely goes better with bigger sides, might wait till the bigger Quobba come out and give them a go.

If test pilot means I'm good on a board - then no, I'm no test pilot. Just using my connections. But, I'll let you know how I go once I get on them.
