We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. As a result we have employed two separate systems depending on the use of the board so that you get an authentic paddle boarding experience every time but with the ultimate convenience.
Most boards in the Red Paddle Co range come with built-in fins – the high-performance iFin system. With moulded fins you don’t need any tools, replacements or spares. They are specially designed to be ultra-durable and easy to pack away for transport. If ever they bend out of shape during storage or use is extremely easy to set tight. Simply pour hot water over the fins and reshape them by hand.
Our Voyager, Sport and Whip boards all feature durable fins made world-leading surfboard fin creators FCS. They're slotted in easily by hand and tightened with a finger bolt, so no tools are required.
US Box Fins originated in the surfing world where they are widely trusted to do a great job. A number of Red Paddle Co boards boast them, including all of the Race boards as well as the WindSUP and WindSURF boards. We use several different types of fin depending on the board. These fins are inserted after inflation and simply attached using a simple nut and bolt system. The fins are specially engineered to slice through the water and the Race fins have a 45% rake on them to ensure no weeds get caught which could slow you down.
