The RAY standup paddle board race fin offers exceptional tracking, stability, and speed, helping you to stay upright and on course at record-beating pace. This is especially helpful during longer distance paddling when fatigue creeps in – rememberer, you are not fast if you are falling off.
Thanks to proprietary foiling and a low drag profile paddlers will gain speed with an increased glide between paddle strokes. When the water gets rough the Ray will really come into its own, the extra depth and increased area will help you stay upright and tracking straight. This SUP fin is highly recommended for rough water, lakes and inter-coastal areas.
The 35° rake and plan shape helps speed up buoy turns while keeping you balanced and in control.
How to Know Which Fin Base Option To Use
When investing in a fin upgrade, you need to make sure you have the correct fit for your board. Unfortunately, board companies have so far not agreed on the preferred standard for fin boxes.
What makes it more confusing is that to the untrained eye, both fin box systems look almost identical. Luckily we have this area covered and the details below will ensure that you get the correct fin for your board.
US STANDARD Base
Fits Starboard, JP-Australia, Fanatic, Mistral, RRD and most production brands with an origin in windsurfing. This is the same fin box that’s found on many windsurfing boards and is wider and deeper, with the pin set further from the deck of the board. The base is 9.2mm thick.
US SURF Base / Longboard Base / Bahne Box
This is the same box that is standard in many surf longboards. It is a narrower and shallower base as used by SIC, Infinity, 404, Naish, Flying Fish and many more. Narrower and shallower than the US base, these boxes have the pin set closer to the deck of the board. The base is 9.0mm thick.
