Replacement fin for five-0??

Post by SHGB » Sat Jun 22, 2019 4:22 pm

Anyone know what fin and where I might get it to fit my perception five-0 sit on surf kayak? It’s out of production, someone in USA has stock, but wondering closer to home. Had heard the cobra strike fin fits but can’t see them for sale either. Any help gladly received! Sam

Not sure where you are but there are around two left and can be purchased in uk from canoe shop chain, but they are £55. Better to get a template if possible and 8mm thick plastic chopping board and cut your own to size.

Any chance you could add a photo of the fin box and / or the old fin (if you still have it)?

I would be surprised if we can not find you a suitable replacement :)

A bit of googling seems to suggest the Five-0 has a standard long box which is rather convenient.
That should mean that pretty much any long board fin should fit.

These seem nice and cheap and should do the job fine
