FINSIGHTS: A new stand up paddle article series on fins. PDF Print E-mail

    There are many stand up paddle surfers out there, myself included, who came from the school of surfing where you just grabbed whatever board Dad would let you take out, or whatever board your friend brought to the beach for you to use. We wouldnít think twice about the shape and never about the fins. As far was we were concerned, fins were all one shape and came from this mysterious fin factory somewhere in surfboard wonderland. Every board came with them and so long and there was at least one on there, you were all set.

    Whether itís age, wisdom, or something else, Iím not sure, but recently there are many of us that have been experimenting with fins and discovering amazing differences in the performance with the simple fin swap or adjustment in fin placement.  For this reason, we are announcing the launch of a series of stand up paddle surfing articles titled Finsights. In these articles, youíll discover insights from traditional and progressive fins designs to testimonials about how certain fins perform in varying conditions. We donít claim the series to be the definitive source on fin design. However, if we can give you a tip or two that improves your performance and quality of time on the water, we would consider that a success.

    Finsights articles will first be published on the the front page of SUPSURFMAG.COM and will also be found in the PERFORMANCE >> EQUIPMENT section of the website. If you would like to contribute your experience or if you know of a fin that simply must be made known to stand up paddlers worldwide, shoot us an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it . Itís time to get fin-crazy. Enjoy the series.
