Hi Allan,
We will post the 2014 boards very soon, including our (somewhat arbitrary) ratings for

A. Glide
B. Tracking
C. Maneuverability
D. Stability

At 170 this board should have enough volume and be plenty stable for you (assuming that you are already an experienced paddler, we don’t recommend this as a entry level board) and will work great in up to head high waves.

Hi Adrian,
You can use the 8’8 Octane with
1) a single center fin- this will be fastest but you will have more control in steep turn with side fins
2) 2+1 setup: a center fin with two smaller side fins (this is the setup that is included with the purchase)
3) thruster setup: three fins about the same size (we recommend 4.75")
4) A quad fin setup

We can help you find the right fin setup at our shop. You will find that fins can really change how a board handles.

For more information on fin setups, visit this blog positing and video:
