Just got a new board from Jeff at Soulcraft and want some opinions. First of all it is a 6' board that Jeff made for himself yo use in ocean and behind boat....same shape as his Soul Slider but just a few inches longer and he also scooped out deck and put a little concave in it. Fins are a set of quad boxes with a longboard box in center(total of 5 fin boxes)

I tried as quad and way too slow then tried the center by itself ...stable and was able to walk the board....5 on nose..... I think center he sent me was a 6.5" .

Question is what fin configuration do you guys think would be best for boat? Maybe a single but shorter? Or some nubsters along with a set of black stixx?

Hopefully someone has some experience with longboards...if not it's a ton of fun and all should try!

Thanks in advance!

Dont waste money on Black Stix for a long board. A longboard should ride different than a regular shortboard.

I recommend using just a single longboard fin to get that traditional feel. It will allow you to do big lofty turns and cross steps. Dont expect it to cut sharp/hard and be able to spin, longboards arent designed for that. Also, the bigger fin creates more drag which helps slow the board down so you can walk up the board without flying into the boat.
