- fiberglass fin
I popped a finbox clean out of my 7'6" MVP because I was running a 9" rigid fiberglass fin on it (terrible, terrible idea). After repairing the board and kicking myself for being too lazy/ cheap to buy the proper fin, I bit the bullet and finally picked up this guy. Totally worth it. No more flying over the handlebars every time I bump into something, and even better, no more broken finboxes! A proper longboard fin is worth the investment, as it is much less susceptible to being lost compared to the side FCS-type tab fins. I wouldn't be surprised if this fin outlives my board.
This was exactly what I was looking for. If you've hit a unexpected obstacle while paddling it can be dangerous. This fin is the perfect length and flexibility to navigate through shoals and eddies with confidence. I banged some river rocks and was shocked at how forgiving the impact was for stability. Great product!
I bought this fin to replace the fiberglass fin on my inflatable board. I paddle a lot in a river that is pretty shallow. This fin has been able to withstand 3 trips so far. Even though the fin is short my board still tracks straight in deeper water.
I SUP mostly shallow rivers in my area with plenty of rocks. The flexibility of this this fin allows me to hammer through them without getting spit off most of the time. The shape of the fin also makes my Rivershred track well going upstream. I've used it on the lake a few times and it has enough trail to make lake paddling enjoyable.
The fin fit perfect and works really well in the river. I appreciate that the screw is behind the fin so I don't worry about what it knock into. (it is a little harder to put in that way but not a deal breaker) I have an inflatable SUP and the rivers I love can run a bit shallow and rocky in places. This fin allows me to track and maneuver in the river without an issue and prevents me from bottoming out and going superman.
