Should I attach a fin

Post by Mini2 »

Hi
I got an old Dagger outlaw old school play boat that I'm using for surfing ,
Would it be a good idea to attach a fin to it ,
Can it be done.
Would it make any different.
Thanks

Any suggestions on where to fit them ,
From a bit of searching I see most people suggest below the back of your butt ,
Do I put them straight
Or angle a bit
Thanks

Stick them just behind your butt, as close to the rails as you can, angled in as if they were pointing to point about a meter in front of your boat.

That should give you a pretty good setup to start with.
