Freeride Fins FAQ - Answered!

What sort of fin is easier to gybe?

A swept back fin is easier to gybe. The more swept back or more rake angle the fin has, and the easier it becomes to manoeuvre (to a certain limit).

The straighter rake angle, the more the fin will plane early and go better upwind. But the straighter fins in high wind generate more lift, so the sailor has to learn how to handle it.

Want easy gybing? Go for a more raked back, freeride style fin.
