Raceboard fin selection
Discussion started by Bill Kaser 3 years ago
Hi gang! Just purchased a Coreban Alpha 14' Race. The stock fin isn't doing the job. Board feels very unstable in anything but super glassy conditions. Also, Ive played with the fin position in the box, but I still get a sensation of drifting sideways in a light breeze. I've been paddling for 4 years and am 6' tall and around 215lbs.,stroking with an 85 cm paddle. Thanks, Bull

Thanks Erin and Kasey for the 411. I found a fin by Larry Allison/ Fiberglass Fin Co. called the Gladiator Elite. This fin has transformed my board... excellent stability, tracks straight, cool looks[!!!] the whole package. Only got dumped once on the inaugural cruise thanks to a couple of rogue waves kicked up by errant yachtsmen!

The hatchet syle fin does a really good job holding its ground. check it out on the riviera paddlesurf website. it's only $75 and is fiberglass, so it's good and strong.

We've had great luck with the FCS SUP Slater Trout fin on race boards. It's very sturdy and will hopefully give you the feel you're looking for. http://www.surffcs.com/us/sup/supnews/news/12-07-17/Eric_and_Slater_Battle_it_out_in_the_Chicago_Pacifico_Race.aspx
