Fin School Part 2: Construction & Flex

Surfboard fin construction and the way a fin flexes are two of the biggest contributors to fin performance. Tailoring your fin selection to the type of waves you want to ride can bring a board to life.

In this film New Zealand Surf Journal sits down with Hughes Surfboards shaper and Raglan Surf Co owner Luke Hughes to tap into his wealth of knowledge when it comes to fins. Luke guides us through construction materials and how they affect a fin’s weight, flex and overall performance in the water.
