North Pro Kontact Fins

Postby Coopes » Sun Apr 11, 2021 1:03 pm

Lost a fin on my North Pro-Kontact board and went online to get a replacement only to discover how many different types of fin connections there are.

Does anyone know where I can get a set of fins that will fit a North Pro-Kontact in the UK. Found an original North set online, but were £119.00, wondered if anyone knew if there was another make out there that would be cheaper as I only need one fin?

North/duotone fins are Future compatible, so you can buy a 15€ plastic set, or if you what a fancier fin, buy a honeycomb, carbon or glas fins...but any future fin could do the job

I'd go for Featherfins; quite reasonably priced and decent quality.

Yes the North fins are "Future compatible" in size. But what make them annoying is that the screws are on the size of the fin box and not at the rear. So, if you buy a fin with some holes in the base, it is possible that the screw won't hold it.
I had the same problem with a North Whip board. I ended buying second hand fins.
