Hi Dave

Are those large Cdrives in the Creek? I agree if you put a nubster in that setup or even a small Quobba it would significantly loosen it up. The medium front 'Cdrives' with small center fin on my Creek is very loose. Surprisingly so and yet seems to have good hold on the wave face. The waves here right now are glassy perfection. Looking forward to the surf tomorrow.

Sorry DHUPEDNORTH1 Iam a sunova fan boy....however would love to try a smik hipster... 8'6 would do if anyone has a spare lying around!!!


ha. no probs

Is the green the largest size.
If so will be trying that combo in few days...


great! let me know how you find it.


colas said..
Yes.
For now the combo green in front + orange in rear is my favorite for small boards. I use a full orange set for longer boards as I use more the rail than the fins, and the speed & looseness gain of the smaller fins is great, as they have ton of hold anyways at speed.
I guess that when their rear adjustable fins (slider) will be available, a full green set with a slider will be quite interesting: just slide the fin forward for smaller waves, you can do it apparently in the water tool-less with no risk of losing the fin.


Yes, the adjustables are very cool. The degree they go to get the machining perfect is just crazy (but necessary - nobody wants a wobbly fin).


Work a treat in my SMIK Short Mac with soft channels.

E-mail from Troy regarding this,

Hi Keith,

Hope all is good with you.

Good News C-Drive is back. I have teamed up with a US based company. They will be doing C-Drive Fins for FCS 1 & Futures - Thrusters and Quads Small, Medium & Large sizes.

They are doing a Pre-Order sale price on Thrusters for USD $75.00 - they will also do Quads on request ( sorry no twins just yet but very soon ).

You can let people know about it on your Seabreeze forum if you like.

The company is Surf NVS:
www.surfnvs.com/collections/thrusters

Contact emails below are Leif & Ragnar:

leif@surfnvs.com

Jamin@surfnvs.com

Cheers
Troy

This is fantastic! I just ordered 3 sets of Cdrive fins. Well done Troy. It looks like the delivery will be later in August. Time to get the fins dialed in for the winter storms.

cheers

These are a few waves from today with my 8'7" Creek and the medium J-drive side fins and small center fin. Definately the best setup I have tried with this board. It feels stable on the wave and yet easy to turn. Looking forward to gettin out in some bigger waves. Great that Troy has partnered with a USA company and we will now all have access to these amazing fins.

Cheers

Bob

Tru Dat mate! Troy sent me an email as I had ordered from him a while back.

He is grateful for the support and appreciated the concern if these new ones were copies or with his blessings!

Cheers!
