I bought a 2013 5'11" celerlitas and on the 1st run I lost a side fin. I'm 210 lbs and can use any suggestions/source on an upgrade over the stock fins. It has the 2 tab fcs with 2 set screws onside of box. I kite in side/onshore crap waves most of the time.
Thanx

The proprietor of my struggling local surf shop keeps a cardboard box filled with orphaned fins behind the counter. If you have such a resource in your area, that might be a quick, cheap, & easy fix... Very Happy

i've been riding the Celerytoss for 5 years. this is the type of fin I like. upright and stiff.

It's the combo I've been riding for 5 years now. I weigh 185 and I ride Oregon and Maui - both places are side on.

(updated with correct link to FCS fins).

Funny, my 2013 Celeritas has fcs fins not futures. I like cheap composition fins because I use mine at the coast and the fin breaks instead of the box when you hit sand. Composition fins are around $20 for a full set

I second the FCS II Performers. Upgraded from stock on my Angry Swallow (quad config) - night and day! I had actually been ready to trade for a bigger board but the new fins drive through lulls, and I kicked up a huge roost on a top turn for the first time in my life. Well worth the spend.
