I used to own a riot flair. There are 3 sets. Small rubber, 1 inch plastic, and 2 inch plastic. You normally use one set, put forward or back, according to how you want a to turn. If you use all 4 slots, it's a bit too much. For normal play work, no fins. In the river only use the rubber ones. They shear off easily.
I have a riot flair, Mainly used in the surf..I use 4 small Rubber fins..This gives extra grip when hard carving but enough to be loose for flat spins..and helps when surfing backwards. I have used the plastic type but over time they snapped.. and experimented with the larger ones which broke in a short time. The small rubber ones are best as you don't have to be concerned about them breaking, but they are getting rare to get hold of now..
