Typically used with alternative, “modern throwback” designs such as 2+1 longboards and twinzers, side-bites are feature the shape of modern shortboard fins, but are typically a bit smaller (in the 2- to 3.5-inch range).
They provide a bit of extra hold through turns, making single fins and twins slightly more aggressive and maneuverable.
- 2- to 3.5-inch side fins
- Add stability to single fins (2+1 setup) and twins (twinzer setups)
- Can be used as part of quad setup to loosen up the board
