Don't get too excited about large fins. Turning is much harder with them.

3rd Ave Kite offers a 63.5mm (2.5") twintip fin. Their fins are made of PCFG, which they claim is superior to G10.

Great info guys !! Many thanks. Boy, who knew that there were so many fin shape options ... is killer.
Dude depending on where you're located I'll send you a set of four 2.25" that came with my first TT for free, I mean you cover the shipping but u can have them, I went to smaller fins right away and stashed these away. PM me if u want and we can sort the details out.

You could also put a central fin on the board. ;-)
