I got a quad custom a few years back and didn't like the cheap plastic fins it came with..tried 4 different sets until I found DVS quad keels and they worked great for me.
The shaper saw them in the board one day and commented that he had tried them and didn't like them .
So it's probably horses for courses with them

I don't mind not getting fins. I've tried enough to know what I like and what works.


On a mid or lb there is so many variables I think it is to hard to stick a fin in it and say that's the fin for you.

I think you can get pretty much any mid length or longboard to work reasonably well by playing around with the fins.
Its not rocket designs we are talking about

Yep & has a lot to do with the waves your riding, fast sucky down the line, fat slow or a mixture of both. Do you want drive or be able to release the fins into a 360 or just or your own personal equalibrium

You longboarders and shortboarders should have a boogie board in your quiver.
You never know. One day you might be going over the falls on a death wave and go - what the f### am i doing
