Like almost anything in the water, also a surfboard needs fins. Choosing fins can be tricky. This is because more than a few factors come into play trying to find the perfect set of fins. Lucky you, we are here to help!
Firstly, fins provide stability to your surfboard, which ensures that your board does not float into all directions and is easier to control.
To make turns with your surfboard, fins are the most important part. A consequence of having fins in the water is that it slows you down. Which means, the more fins under your surfboard, the more you are slowed down. Apart from that, fins are essential while making turns. Yet again, fins also create more drag, which decreases your speed.
In search of the best set of fins, it is important to know which type of fin box your surfboard has. There is FCSI, FCSII, Futures and US box, also known as Single Fin.
