I'm currently shaping my first surfboard, and I had a (potentially dumb) question.
My tail is sligtly asymmetrical, and I would like to do a 5 fin set up using FCS 2 fin boxes. From what I read, if my blank is asymmetrical, I should measure my fin placement from the rail, as fins and rails work together during turns. Now, I was wondering if my rear and front quads had to have the same center line along the stringer?
I was planning on marking my rear dot for fin placement at 1 1/4" from the rail for my side fins, but should I adjust that distance so that my rear and front quad fins share a center line? Or does it make no difference when surfing?
Thank you all for your input!
