HOW TO POSITION YOUR SUP FIN

FROM THE PAU HANA SUP SCHOOL

Learn how to properly position a fin into the fin box of a stand up paddle board. Depending on the type of paddling you are planning on doing, the placement of the fin can have a great impact on the way the board handles. In general, the placement of the fin in the middle of the fin box is usually the sweet spot for most riders and for most everyday types of paddling. For paddling that requires lots of turning like surfing, place your fin as forward as you can. For paddling that will not require much turning like touring, place your fin as far back as you can.
