I do use tri fin set up on my 12'6" Starboard windsup with a 5.8 Aerotech Zenith, lot of litewind fun and good glide. Mite have to try the 28cm with the side fins for the halibut!


I have found that grilled halibut, with a salad and nice wine suits me

I used this fin on my BIC , 22 /24 onlysizes USBox only. With sides of 12cm

I never felt any need to go to anything else. This was all flattish .

I checked my sup fins and they are a 23cm center not 28! Sidebites are 11cm.I really like the K4 weed fin- been looking for one. Not too big for the us box! BTW, like your halibut and salad, but my wife is the wino- i'll take a Newcastle instead...

Itís Shipsterns Bluff, Tasmania. For LOL.

Colorado is Parker also. When I sail here its usually Aurora Reservoir, 20 mins away. NOT Hot like the snow is here.

My Exocet longboard has FCS side fins. Lots of those around on ebay.

There are at least 3 versions of FCS fin bases.
The ones you mention are probably the most common which have 2 tabs, that fasten with screws from the bottom of the board .

Depending in the FCS application, the foils could be symmetrical, asymmetrical, with toe, with cant.

Yes 2 small screws. Do many people use side fins vs single fin?
