Secondary fin recommendation for BRM Paipo

I went to take out my old BRM Paipo the other day and for some reason, I removed the fins the last time I used it. I can only find one now and lost all hope of finding the second one. BRM doesn't make the paipo anymore unfortunately and so I have no way of getting my hands on the stock fins. Does anyone have a suggestion on a similar fin that could be used with the Paipo?

I use twin tip fins.

Works much better, the board gets a little bit more loose.

I think the originals were 2"/50mm.
on my homemade paipo copy I used to use the old (2006?!) 2.5" "surf dog" twintip fins made I think by rainbow, for a little more grip.
Any big 2-2.5" twintip or wake type fin should approximate the original fairly well.
Smaller for looser, bigger for grip, deep and pointy for grip that can be broken out, long keel shape for hold...

yeah pretty much any TT fin should work. I like a lower profile fin.

I think the original was 53mm fins but you can go bitter or smaller.

Thanks all for the suggestions. I emailed Greg and he just sent me a new pair of the originals free of charge. Awesome dude.
