The fin is not helping this board either. It was known to everyone that 2008 and before had some issues with the nose sticking. I worked with a few fin manufacturer to help me personally fix that problem and I found that the board needs to ride with footstraps in the middle front and all the way in the back on the back.
Also the fin that work for me best was Vector fins the Canefire 38 the angle of that fin was optimum to help promote a high riding nose. Also Use a D2 39cm from F4 Fins and we solve the problem also with that fin.
