A Slice of Life | Fin It To Win It

Every logger you ask will tell you the same thing – the fin on your board is a crucial element to getting the most out of your wave riding experience. Whether you’ve got a classic square-tail noserider, a sleek rounded pin, or an experimental asymm, Captain Fin Co makes stylish skegs for all!

For my square-tail 9’5 log, I prefer the JJ Wessels 9 inch fin. The rake is perfectly versatile for setting my tail at points, reefs, and beach breaks!

After the initial shock of the frigid waters (and after my extremities went numb…) I sort of got used to the temperature and really enjoyed feeling free to swim around without any neoprene restricting my movements! I exited the ocean feeling fresh, renewed, and ready to face any challenges that come my way this year.
