The centre fin on your paddle board is what influences manoeuvrability and stability. We’ve broken down how to install your centre fin in 4 easy steps. We have two types of screws, be sure to follow the right tutorial!
Option 1 : Screw with bolt
The smart screw! This screw will allow you to install your centre fin without any tools.
Place the tip of your screw perpendicular to your fin. The base of the screw is shaped to fit in the fin box.
Insert the fin base into the fin box slot and slide it to the rear of the fin box. The tip of the fin should point towards the tail of the board.
Turn the tip of your screw parrallel to your fin box.
Twist the black bolt until you feel that the fin is tightly secured in place.
Option 2 : Screw with plate
Remove the screw from the centre fin, and slide the aluminium plate to the front of the fin box, towards the nose of the board.
Insert the fin base into the fin box slot and slide to the rear of the fin box. The tip of the fin should point towards the tail of the board.
Slide the aluminium plate so that the hole is aligned with the screw hole of the centre fin.
Once aligned, screw your fin tightly into the aluminium plate so that you don’t lose it when paddling.
The further back you place the central fin, the more your paddle board will go in a straight line. If you push the fin towards the front of the board, the easier your board will be to maneuver.
