Do you want to feel more secure on the face of a wave? Choose fins close to 1. They're often a favorite among powerful surfers or in powerful waves where controlling speed is important. You’ll feel a solid engagement to the water for a more stable and predictable ride. For a more fluid, springy and responsive feel choose fins close to 10. They’re usually a favorite among light footed surfers or in small waves. They’re great at helping create speed when the waves are weak. Fins in the middle of the scale close to 5 will feel neutral in your board. They’re not made to control or create speed or to add any premium feelings to your board - they let your boards original character shine.
