We’ve talked in the past about how to pick a fin. Each fin is geared towards different conditions and goals of paddlers. Certain fins help in rougher waters, they can add stability or increase mobility of a board. Some fins aid in tracking, maximizing a paddler’s stroke per side. Even then, some are better at turning and maneuverability for technical course racing. If you need help picking a fin you should revisit our post on HOW TO CHOOSE A SUP RACE FIN (http://carolinapaddle.com/learn/sup-race-fins-choosing-the-right-stand-up-paddleboard-fin)
Then, if you’re looking forward to the new 2016 fins from Futures, and wondering what fin would best fit the conditions you paddle in, check out this video:
In this new video from the 2016 Surf Expo, Jeramie Vaine takes us through some of the science behind the new 2016 fins. How they came up with certain designs, what conditions they’re good for, and what the shapes can do for your paddling.
