WEIGHT & SIZES
The size of surfboard fins can often be chosen based on your weight, which is a commonly used method. However, it's important to consider other factors as well, such as the wave height and your surfing style, when determining the appropriate fin size for your board. These additional factors can influence the overall performance and feel of your surfboard, so it's essential to take them into account alongside your weight when selecting the right fin size.
Under 70 KGS Under 155 LBS
65 -80 KGS 145 - 175 LBS
Over 75 KGS Over 165 LBS
Fin flex refers to the degree to which the fins bend or flex under pressure, particularly while turning or manoeuvring on a wave.
Flexibility in fins can have a significant impact on the overall performance and feel of a you board
The flex is determined by various factors, including the materials used and the specific design characteristics.
Fins with more flex tend to provide a smoother and more responsive feel in the water. They can generate additional "spring" or energy during turns, allowing for quicker and more dynamic maneuvers.
Stiffer fins offer increased stability and control, particularly at high speeds. They tend to provide a more predictable and direct response, which can be advantageous for powerful, drawn-out turns or maintaining control in challenging conditions.
Drive refers to the ability of the fins to generate forward propulsion and maintain speed while riding a wave.
The design and placement of surfboard fins play a crucial role in creating drive.
Fins with a larger surface area, base or a more swept-back shape are generally more effective in generating drive. Fins that are placed further back on the tail of the board also tend to enhance drive by increasing the leverage and allowing for more efficient power transfer.
More upright fins are often favored in powerful waves or for surfers who prefer a more aggressive, driving style whilst smaller, more raked-back fins may offer a looser feel with less drive, suitable for smaller, less powerful waves or move maneuverable experience.
Fin rake refers to the angle or degree of backward sweep in the shape of the fin. It is measured by the angle between the leading edge of the fin and a straight line perpendicular to the base of the fin.
The rake of a surfboard fin affects its performance and characteristics in the water.
Fins with more rake, or a greater angle of backward sweep, tend to provide a looser and more maneuverable feel. They allow for easier pivoting and quick direction changes, making them suitable for tighter turns and more dynamic surfing styles.
Fins with more rake may sacrifice some stability and drive at higher speeds.
Conversely, fins with less rake, or a more upright shape, offer increased stability and control. They excel in generating forward drive and maintaining speed, making them ideal for powerful and larger waves. Fins with less rake provide a more locked-in feel during high-speed maneuvers and can enhance control and predictability.
Fin height refers to the vertical measurement of a fin from its base to its highest point, typically measured perpendicular to the surfboard's bottom surface.
The height of a fin affects various aspects of surfing, including stability, maneuverability, and control. Fins with greater height offer increased stability and control, particularly during high-speed maneuvers and in larger waves. They provide more surface area and grip in the water, allowing for better hold and traction.
Fins with lower height offer enhanced maneuverability and responsiveness. They allow for quicker pivoting and tighter turns, making them suitable for surfers who prefer a more agile and dynamic style of surfing. Lower height also tend to reduce drag and can offer increased speed in certain conditions.
Additionally, the interaction between the height of the front and rear fins, as well as the overall configuration of multiple fins, can also influence the performance and feel of the surfboard.
