K4 Fins – Pro Tuning PWA Pozo
“My favorite set up is the Scorcher 15cm in the back and the shark2 9cm in the front.
I like to use different sizes for the back fin, but it is always the scorcher: 14 cm when the wind is strong and the waves small, like Canary Islands in summer. If the wind is up and down, and the waves not super small I will use the 15 cm, and this is the fin I use most of the time. When the waves get big I go for the 16 cm to have a bit more drive and to handle the chop better.
When it comes to front fins, I use the 9 cm Shark2 when the wind is over 25 knots and the waves are small. If the wind is light and the waves small I use the shark2 10 cm. And when I get to sail good waves with power I like to use the Shark2 (proto) 70/30 asymmetrical 2 degrees, to get a nice grip and a real surfy feel under my board.”

“The whole line of new G4 Simmerstyle quantum got shorter tail. This gives the board really nice free feel but automatically more grip from the fins because they are closer to the tail. So this year I went back from the scorcher to the Flex fins and went on each board size smaller of back fin size to make the board less grippy so I can play more around when to have grip or not grip, I still kept the Shark2 fins what gives me nice drive but also some extra lift.”

88ltr Quatro Pryamid:
“At the moment I am using an 18 Scorcher with a pair of 10cm SharkII .
The past few months I have actually been using a 17 Scorcher in the 88ltr board, the reason I changed this was because I found in very light wind, solid waves I found the slightly bigger fin offered more drive and grip.
Before the Scorcher fin was released I would use a Stubby Center fin, This was usually used one Size larger than what I use with my Scorcher.
The reason I have moved over to the Scorcher is I find it to be looser and offers more pivot than the Stubby would offer.”
78ltr Quatro Pryamid:
“16 Scorcher 10cm Ezzy’s.
The fins in this board are more or less the same story as my larger board. The 16 Scorcher is my go too in this board when it’s windy.”
Graham is generally using 17/18 Scorcher rears for Pozo, with 10cm SharkII fronts (some standard and some proto 30/70 foil). He’ll switch them out for Flex and Ezzy fins at more riding biased spots where the wave provides the drive.
