Different boards will obviously suit different styles of fin, can you give some advice on this?
Yes. A wave board requires a wave fin, a freewave a freeride fin …and so on.
But you can use a wave fin on a Freewave board if you want more manoeuvrability from your equipment. This will increase your ability to make moves, but it will slow down your top speed.
You can also use a Freewave fin on your freeride board to increase the manoeuvrability.
Well….you can’t have it all…☺. This is a normal rule. We cannot make a fin that has all these characteristics.
