CF fins

Postby airdood43 » Sun Oct 16, 2016 3:11 pm

Hello, I was wondering if CF fins are industry standard? In other words, are the fins compatible with other boards on the market? The reason being that I have broken off one of my fins and would like to replace it the most cost effective way possible. I would prefer to order new fins online and this would make it difficult to do a proper test fitting. Thanks!

CF= Crazy Fly or Carbon Fiber ?

Almost all tt fins are interchangeable.

The spacing for pretty much all fins is the same, however the screws used can be different widths, meaning some will fit and some won't. I couldn't put an older set of Cabrinha fins on my LF board because the screws were too wide and wouldn't fit through the board's fin holes. I also have a CF Raptor Ltd and have LF fins on it which take thin screws and will fit any board.

Twin Tip or Surfboard fins?
If it's a surfboard fin, one tab or two tabs on the bottom of the fin?

CF fins are the standard though some brand like f-one have their own fin unibox system.
