Surfboard Fins

Originally, surfboards did not have fins. The first fin setup was the single-fin on the longer surfboards. The twin-fin came next, followed by the tri-fin or thruster. These three setups comprise the bulk of surfboard fin positions.

Our fins can be glassed on as a permanent fixture or screwed in with a specialized system that allows removal at surfers’ discretion. There are eight major characteristics in a surf fin: materials, base, height, sweep, area, cant, foil and flexibility. Alongside with surfer’s weight, these variables will influence the drive, pivot and hold behavior of a fin setup. They are flexible and come in different lengths & shapes to keep the surfboard on a truer trajectory.
