“For the rear I prefer Scorcher 16. This is my favorite fin, I use on every conditions. For the front I prefer Asymmetric Graham Ezzy Model 1° 10cm. Specially in the waves like Cabo Verde Iove thess fins. When I do a bottom turn, it turns so smooth and fast. When I turn on the lip, I can turn very quick!!!”
“I’m using my 76L with the Scorcher in 16 and the A.I. in 11… I take the scorcher for Ponta Preta because I didn’t want to have spinout in this spot so I prefer to have more grip. After I had chose the ASYMMETRICS one because for surfing I think they are the best!”
“I’m using 11 asymmetrics with 1° and 14’5 at the back”
“I used the Ezzy 10’s with 2 degrees of toe-in on the sides and a 18cm Scorcher in the rear. This is my go-to setup on all my boards and for all conditions. I love the grip and drive that the Ezzy fins provide. I feel a huge difference between the Ezzy’s and any other side fin. They just make it easier to initiate–and most importantly–hold the carve. ”
“So , I use the 15 Scorcher and 10 Incinerator 1 degree asymmetrical fronts. This is the set up I use most of the time, in most spots. In strong winds or bigger waves I use 16, but for smaller DTL wave riding I like to use smaller centre fin to have the board feeling a bit looser. Also I like the scorcher because it’s good for going upwind and has good grip.”
