My small stick-on center pad is positioned exactly in between front and back main pads
The other 2 side stick-on are positioned 1 3/8" on each side and parallel the center one
Center pad widest part goes toward the tail
Side pads widest part goes toward the nose
The wide round tail of that board combined with the perfect close to tail back strap position....
.....makes that quad fin board turn on a dime....nothing quite like it
The volume of the board is very well balanced...you will have no issues compared to your surfboard
