Weed fins are great

Len Kilfoyle - 11/12/2011

These fins are 30% smaller than the originals and raked back to shed weed. We have an eel grass that breaks off the bottom and floats to the surface in clumps. This eel grass collected on the original fins and slowed the board down considerably. It required a hop or stop to clear off the grass. Kelp could also be a problem with the original fins. I did lose some upwind bite but I rip through the eel grass and kelp. The board is faster and turns considerably better with the weed fins. I am not a racer, just a recreational kiter, so a loss of some upwind ability with the gains I described are a good tradeoff in my opinion. The weed fins are very good quality. The front fins overlap tight on the bottom of my Sector board & the back ones are made without any overlap, they just rake back: nothing to catch weed. A little pricey, but they come with the original side angle, are solid construction and get the job done. I have a friend who is a well known maker of fins and he did not want to deal with the angle to the outside. That angle is important to the Sector performance and I am sure adds to the price of the weed fins.
Overall, I am happy with the quality and performance of the weed fins.
