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.
It's simple, just determine your size range and then determine what feeling you desire to find your next Ride Number. To explore further, click play on the video to the right.
A V2 Foil is a V. Foil and Flat Foil blend. It takes the best speed generating attributes of the V. (at the base) and transitions into a flat foil in the tip for a controlled release in critical turns. Try the V2 foil if you are transitioning from flat sided fins. The benefits of the V. foil base will be noticeable but the change for your muscle memory will not be too drastic.
