The Best Fin Setups for Wake Surfing

The Best Fin Setups for Wake Surfing

One hard and fast rule about wake surfing is... you don't need nearly as much "fin" as you do in the Ocean.

The speeds are higher, and the forces are more linear, so it takes less surface area to do the job.

Anytime you are taking your surf equipment to a wake, look for a way to reduce your fin area. 

For example:

  • 5'4 Menu: we recommend these finlettes in the back boxes
  • 6'4 Pheasant: we recommend removing the center fin and running it as a twin. (side bites only)
  • Longboards: choose a rakey fin like the Pin Fin, rather than a larger surface-area fin like the Huck or Log Rhythm.

Looking for more ways to scratch the surf itch, wherever you find yourself? Keep an eye out for our upcoming Almond Surfboards Guide for Land-Locked Surfers, were we explore all sorts of ways of finding surf.
