How to Install Fins For your freein paddle board Correctly👌

January 27, 2021

Stand up paddleboard fins are an essential part of your paddleboard.  Without fins your board would start to turn radically with every stroke, making the whole paddling unstable. 

Fins allows you to move forward in a relatively straight line, or “track”. They prevent the tail of the board from slipping sideways as you put pressure on either side of the board as you go through your stroke.

Freein paddle boards comes equipped with various fin boxes. The different design of the fin also affects speed, stability and how easily you can turn your board.
