SUP fins

Finding the right fin for the SUP board is important because it provides a crucial performance advantage for your SUP. A long SUP fin will not make a Tourer or Racer out of a short Wave SUP board, so it does not affect the overall characteristics of the SUP board, but it does provide the necessary polish in terms of controllability and stability. So if you are looking for ideal conditions for stand up paddling, you should take your time with the right choice of SUP fin and, if necessary, test different SUP fins under real conditions in conjunction with the SUP board. High-quality SUP fins have different lengths and shapes, and their surfaces are CNC machined to specific SUP board types, allowing them to maximize their effectiveness in stand up paddling.

Forms of SUP fins

In addition to SUP Finns in wing or dolphin style, there are sword-like SUP fins, as well as wider SUP fins in the form of a median fin. Different lengths and degrees of stiffness (flex) ensure fine performance differences in stand up paddling, influencing the behavior of the inflatable SUP board. Polyester constructions with fiberglass content make the SUP fins lightweight and robust, the flexibility of the respective SUP fin is oriented to the respective application. A more agile, turn-based driving style in stand up paddling, for example in freestyle or freeriding, prefers especially soft and flexible SUP fins. For SUP racing or touring and long stretches straight, however, one uses rather stiff, long and particularly stable SUP fins.

SUP Finn Systems

SUP Finn manufacturers such as Naish, Starboard, JP Australia and BIC now use a US box finned system or a plug-in system on their inflatables SUP boards. Thus SUP fins of different brands are compatible beyond the respective SUP Board Range. In order to ensure an optimal effectiveness of the SUP fin in stand up paddling, your SUP fin should fit exactly in the fin box and not wobble, have no unnecessary play. The farther back the SUP fin is on the SUP board, the greater its impact. If the fin box of your SUP board is located at the far end of the tail, the choice of your individually preferred SUP fin can fall on a slightly shorter, high-performance SUP fin.
