Unregistered Thanks for the reply - I've heard good things about Select too!

crazychemical it is possible to insert a tuttle in a deeptuttle box so you don't need to narrow your search to deep tuttle. You just have to add longer screws (90 mm i believe) and it'll fit.

As for fins: the freeride flow seems like a good fin. Personally i've always liked the R13's made by Drake. Real fast fins and good early planners with a pure slalom design and feel.

If you're willing to look into other, cheaper or more available brands and in the freeride range i've always like the Select ride series. They come in every type of box from power to deep tuttle and the price is very good in comparison to the performance. These are very controlable fins with a good top end speed.
I've also heard a lot of good things from maui fin company Liquid Pro and Liquid Move but they're a bit pricier. I own MFC freestyle fins and have no remarcs whatsoever but freestyle and freeride differ quite a bit.

In short, many brands supply good freeride fins but you should try to get feedback before you buy one to see how it works. You can also consider a slalom fin, which you can much more easily find in deeptuttle on the second hand market for a good price.

2004 Carve 131 replacement fin

Hi - I have a 2004 Carve 131 and a broken Drake Freeride 480 fin. Can't seem to find a new replacement Drake Freeride 480 fin so I guess they are no longer produced. Can anyone recommend a replacement Drake fin (or any other make of Deep Tuttle fin for that matter) that would make a good substitute for the broken original? The Drake Freeride Flow only come in Tuttle-box I think! (90kg intermediate sailor; 6.5 - 8.5m sails)
