Looks great. What purpose do the smaller fins serve? Are they the same angle as the big fins?

The guy that ordered it wanted to have 4 fin boxes. He is considering riding it with the big fins forward. The idea is to reduce need for rear foot pressure and have more balance ride. Its all hypothetical.

It is easy enough to take off one set of fins and tape over the boxes.

Both fins have 25 degree angle. From Tarifa Fin Company. cost a bundle.....but they are beautiful with ultra thin profiles and super stiff.
