Longboard Fins: "Choosing a Longboard Fin for Your Surf Style"

Longboard Fins are extremely interesting, because all of the Fin Companies, FCS, Futures, Rainbow Fin Co., 3D Fins, Turbo Tunnel, etc. are in a situation where they all make their Longboard Fins Bhane Box compatible. We'll go into what a Bhane Box is and why all the Fin companies use the standard "Bhane Box" in a future article. For now, all you need to know is- if you have a Longboard, you can buy a Longboard Fin from the company of your choice. This is very cool, it's opens up a ton of options, but with options come choice. So, how do you choose a Longboard Fin? I'm glad you asked, I think the best place to start is to choose a Longboard Fin that Fits your Surf Style. Please Read on.

Choose a Longboard Fin for Where You're at.

First thing I think you should ask yourself, is where are you at in your "longboard surfing career", by that I mean, have you just started surfing? Did you just buy your first Longboard? Or have you been surfing your whole life and you own seven Longboards. (Just to clarify, the latter is where we all strive to be) Most likely you land somewhere in between, what matters here is that you know where you land. A lot of Longboard Fins are designed with experience in mind, some are less forgiving, while others may be more forgiving, but are going to feel stiff for those of us that have been surfing longer, so make sure you choose a Longboard Fin for where you're at.

Choose a Longboard Fin for Where you Want to be.

Next, you need to take a look at where you want to be. Are you trying to do super long nose rides? Are you super progressive and looking to do things surfers only think are possible on shortboards? Do you wanna just cruise? Think about it, I mean really sit back right now in your chair and just consider what you're going for here. Once you have that in mind you'll be in a much better place to choose your new Longboard Fin. This is because (as you'll discover) there are Longboard Fins made specifically for what ever you're looking to accomplish. I wouldn't even focus so much one which company makes the Longboard Fin you're looking at. If you're buying your Longboard Fin online right here, it's going to be a quality fin, so instead I would focus more on what the fin will do for your surfing.

Longboard Fins and your Longboard.

The last thing I would keep in mind when buying your new Longboard Fin online, is what type of Longboard you have. Again, if you have seven Longboards, pick one or maybe two that you'll be using the your new fin on. This is because (again as you'll see) a lot of Longboard Fins are made for specific shapes of Longboard. For example, don't throw a six inch Longboard Fin on a ten foot Longboard, you're just asking for trouble. Also, you should think twice about putting a progressive Longboard Fin on a "cruiser", it's just not going to end well. I know this may seem a bit over whelming, at this point if you're telling yourself there should be a place that you can just "Test" Longboard Fins before you commit to buying one, there is. Finatic. Read on.

At The Surfboard Warehouse, we've also partnered with the Finatic Fin Testing Program as a way to offer you a solution when it comes to trying Longboard Fins before you buy them. Finatic allows you the ability to test every set of Longboard Fins you can think of through their platform which operates much link Netflix. You set up your "queue" of fins and receive a set in the mail, to surf as long as you like. When you're comfortable with how the fin affect your surfing you simply send them back and Finatic will send you another Longboard from your queue. We believe that Finatic is the next thing in the evolution of our sport when it comes to surfboard fins and that's why we have chosen to partner with them. Finatic does not sell new fins, so when you find a set of fins that you like, head back here to The Surfboard Warehouse let us know which Longboard Fin you'd like to purchase and we'll get them to you.
