1. Where ever you can find them on special or discounted
2. I have the machado quad keels, I love em. Super fast and hold a much more vertical line without stalling
Good in particular in small - medium sucky waves

1 quobbafins.com/ of course :-)

Otherwise, I advocate buying at the shop, local or online, that you would like to keep existing in the future. Most fin brands impose a standard retail price, so the price difference will not be huge (mainly on the port). What is important is to help the shops you like.
For me I wont care if all fin makers disappear as long as Quobba is still there :-)

2 I found keels great at low speed but quickly become overfinned. I'd rather use the C-Drive twin fins plus small rear quads, they have nearly as much drive as keels, but stay nimble in the power.

I'm sorry , but try aliexpress. ?t might seem disloyal, but Mick Fanning has a online store there.
I haven't tried the Keel quad fins, but will swear by using 50/50 carbon polyester in preference to 100% carbon. Less chipping, pleasant flex/slightly more power out of turns.

Shapers fins on the goldie have a great range - I always find their large short board fins work well in the SUP's- always great to deal with and good prices and quick dispatch - the MB large and Carbon Flare extra large are worth a look. A couple of US box centre fin options for SUPS as well - got some new MB medium larges in my F Skate miller and they work a treat

Simple surf in Newcastle had some billy basic carbon flare style large thruster sets in dual (fcs) and single tabs (futures) for a great price - run them in my ECS 7'5 slab and work nicely from knee high up

Happy fin hunting
