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!
