Hi people from Swaylocks,
Been here lurking for years and making several boards, greetings to all the old school people who post here on a regular basis and share the stoke of surfing and making boards for it.
Recently shaped a few boards, and one ot these is a light 8' kinda longboard. 20" x 2 1/2 or so.
I have seen that on many longboards, Sunova for example, 3 regular fins are placed instead of a big center and side small fins. It seem that they are located more forward than usual, by looking at the photos and comparing with the table of fin placement I use as a guide.
Mckee guide for shortboards and guns says for 8 feet board:
- Center fin at 3" 13/16 (16.3 cm)
- Side fins at 13" 3/8 (9.7 cm)
I know fin placement still depends on rocker curve and tail area, my board is fairly flat, not much rocker, tail widht at 12" is 14".
I am using E4 FCS compatible fins, have these enough area to fit this board?
Thanks for you advice, any help would be appreciated.
