Windsurf Fins - all fin box systems - Surfshop W7
Maybe this is the most underestimated part of the windsurf equipment although it offers so many effective tuning options
that may determine the success and fun of the windsurf session: The windsurf fin. That is why we advise you not always to rely on the standard
fin that comes with your surfboard but to choose a fin depending on your spot, your board, your sail, the wind conditions and the rider weight.
Compared to the standard fin, you should choose a longer fin for
- more wind
- larger sails
- wider boards
In addition to that, it is useful to select a fin shape that is suitable for the intended purpose: We offer freeride, wave, race, freerace, freestyle
and more shapes. For spots with shallow water or waters with seaweed, it can be helpful to use special weed fins.
A word on fin materials:
- GFK, VE und GX fins are constructions that resort to polyester laminates. These fins belong to the cost-effective segment and are only medium hard.
They are not easy to sand as the polyester fibres can be open and pull water. The fin surface would have to be closed by an epoxy resin.
- G10 fins are harder and made of epoxy laminate. Fins with this kind of construction are easy to repair with the help of sanding paper: The repair
can be executed without taking the risk of fringes. Another advantage of this fin type is a very good price and quality relation.
- Carbon: This kind of material mix is highly estimated in the windsurf sector as it combines a very good hardness and stiffness with a
low weight. But just as the GFK fins, the carbon fibers are exposed to the water in case of damages and you absolutely need epoxy resin to seal the
sanded or damaged areas.
