fin cant

Could I have a shaper explain this to me please. I think I understand the principle, more cant = more lift but I am guessing there must be a trade off somewhere like everything else, is it speed or manouverability?

Howdy Partner, some thoughts on fin cant, I'm enjoying a pair of small Bonzer fins from a quad set on my Outer Island the increased cant seems to add a better hold on steeper faces enabling better nose riding higher on the face but I also think there is some venturi effect where the bottom contours blend to the fin base the tail seems to be holding better but there is no significant tracking

Happy old fart!
