How do I straighten out the tracking of my SUP board?
If you find your board is snaking back and forth more than you like in the water (where you're having to switch paddling sides more often than you like), you can correct this to a large degree with the fin configuration. Lighter riders are often times perfectly fine in the tracking department with a single center fin. Heavier riders can sometimes find themselves snaking back and forth more than they like and so they might want to consider adding a pair of side fins. The tracking can all be corrected with a change in fins, and there are really two ways to correct it. Either replace the center fin with a big rudder-like fin, or just add two small side fins (called side bites). On our Tower boards we use Futures Fins boxes (by design, they're a much better mounting solution on thick SUP boards) so you HAVE TO GET FUTURES FINS FOR ALL SIDE FINS!
