Stand Up Paddleboard Fins


 The evolution of stand up paddleboard (SUP) fins traces back to the traditional Polynesian roots of paddleboarding, where finless boards were used for navigating shallow waters and riding waves. Over time, modern SUP fin designs have adapted for various water conditions and riding styles.

Key Facts:

SUP fins come in different shapes and sizes, affecting board performance in terms of stability, maneuverability, and tracking. They are typically made from materials like fiberglass, plastic, or carbon fiber.


  1. Enhanced Stability: Fins provide stability and prevent the board from sliding sideways, especially in choppy or windy conditions.
  2. Improved Maneuverability: Different fin configurations allow for sharper turns or more controlled gliding, depending on the rider's preference.
  3. Tracking and Control: Fins help maintain a straight course and improve the board's responsiveness to paddle strokes.

Differences in SUP Fins:

  1. Single vs. Multiple Fins: Single fin setups offer better tracking, while multiple fin setups (such as thrusters or quads) enhance maneuverability.
  2. Fin Size and Shape: Larger fins provide more stability, while smaller fins are more maneuverable. The shape (e.g., skeg, dolphin, or raked) affects water flow and board control.

Material: SUP fins are commonly made from fiberglass for durability and flexibility, plastic for affordability, or carbon fiber for lightweight performance.

Buying Guide for SUP Fins:

  • Riding Style: Consider whether you prioritize stability, maneuverability, or speed.
  • Conditions: Choose fins suited to the water conditions you'll be paddling in (e.g., flatwater, surf, or rivers).
  • Compatibility: Ensure the fins are compatible with your board's fin box system (e.g., US Box, Futures, or FCS).
  • Quality: Invest in quality fins that match your skill level and long-term paddling goals.

Conclusion: SUP fins are crucial components that significantly influence board performance and rider experience. By understanding the differences in fin types, materials, and their impact on SUP handling, paddlers can make informed choices to enhance their paddling adventures.

Choosing the right SUP fin is crucial for the performance and control of your board. For racing or fast paddling on open waters, we recommend high-performance race fins that offer stability and speed. If you want to go on longer tours or trips, touring fins are ideal as they give you good directional stability and manoeuvrability.

For surfing waves, we offer wave fins that are specifically designed for manoeuvrability and control. If you have an inflatable SUP board, our slide-in fins offer easy installation without tools.

Our SUP fins are made from high quality materials and offer an optimal balance between stability and flexibility. They are durable and robust to withstand the rigours of stand-up paddling.

Our team is available to advise you on the right SUP fin for your needs. We'll help you find the right size and design for your board and riding style.
