I have only side slipped once, when a wave closed on me from behind. I was going to try their smallest fin also, the "Super Grom", but these fins turn and hold great. I want to try Futures smaller more traditional type low aspect (K2)fish fins sometime. I like the drive of the bigger fins, but I also like the looseness of the smaller fins. There are draw backs to both.
My latest 2 sets of fins made by Huie from Swaylocks. Haven't had them out in decent surf yet.
I missed the question, sorry about that.
The fin is 3 1/2" high and 3 1/8" long. These are used as twin fins. I would probably go a little shorter, but this is just me. A bit more bite than the shallow fins, but also some noticeable drag at times. I changed fins between surfs. I haven't tried it finless for a while so might try that on the week-end.
