ROAM – LONGBOARD FIN – 9 Inch – Smoke

80.00

Our ROAM Longboard fin template is a balanced all round shape creating a fin to suit most mid-lengths and longboards in most wave conditions. The wide base generates predictable drive with a medium wide tip for smooth turns and fluid manoeuvrability.

The small sizes are excellent for smaller egg or high performance longboards running 3 similar size fins. The medium to larger fins are great as 2+1 or single fins on mid length up to longboards.

ROAM

BOARD COVERS ROAM board bags are designed for purpose. We use only premium materials and function led features to ensure maximum usability. We use HD padding, hard wearing fabrics and double stitched seams throughout, plus essential details like ventilation, grab handles and buckle free straps. Plus all our bags are cut longer to fit the board they are labelled for.   All ROAM board bags are tried, tested and approved.   LEASHES ROAM leashes use only the best components and materials - stainless steel swivels, super durable webbing, neoprene, moulded connectors and high grade urethane cord. We know the value of a good leash and how much a bad leash can ruin a great surf. All of our leashes are tried, tested and approved.   TRACTION ROAM traction offers a super compact range, designed to fit all boards and all surf styles. Our 3 models are designed for the full spectrum of surf - from wider boards to narrow performance boards, front foot style or locked in back foot surfing. All pads use 3M glue and high quality EVA.

THERE ARE MANY ASPECTS TO SURFBOARD SELECTION THESE ARE THE POINTS TO CONSIDER

LENGTH

Typically surfboards are measured in inches. The length is measured from the nose to the tail. Choosing the length of the surfboard is dependant on your size (weight, height), board type and waves conditions you wish to use the board for.

WIDTH

The widest point of the surfboard is measured from rail to rail. Generally the wider the surfboard the more stable the board, while a board with smaller width maintains better speed and performance.

BOARD THICKNESS

Surfboard thickness is measured from the top deck to the bottom. The thickness again has a bearing on the board’s performance. Professional surfers will tend to go for the thinner boards as they are lighter and offer better performance.The thicker boards are stronger and because there is more foam under the surfer the boards are more stable.

ROCKER

The bottom curve of a surfboard. Generally the more rocker the surfboard has the more loose (manoeuvrable) the surfboard will be. Where the flatter rocker surfboards will be faster, although they will lack the looseness. The nose is the tip of the surfboard, the nose can vary in shapes and size. Basically the thinner the nose the more response the board will perform, while wider noses are better for stabilization.

STRINGER

Used to increase the strength of a surfboard, a stringer (normally made from wood) runs down the length of a surfboards (typically in the centre of the board from the tip of the nose to the tail).
Boards built with Epoxy, Carbon Fibre and soft boards generally don’t have stringers.

FINS

Generally heavier surfers require larger fins to hold the waves better. Although if you prefer to ride a looser (less hold in the waves), smaller fins would be a better option.

FIN CONSIDERATIONS

Fin configurations have an effect on the ways your surfboards perform.
The following are some of the more common fin configurations.

SINGLE FIN

The single fin was the original fin configuration for surfboards. Based on the idea of the sailboat keel. Single fins are added stabilization and control on the powerful, larger waves, although lack manoeuvrability

TWIN FIN

Are great for small waves, being fast and manoeuvrable, but when put into tight spots on larger waves, they become hard to control. Popular with Fish surfboards.

THRUSTER 3 FIN

Widely recognized as the standard fin configuration, the thruster answers the shortcomings of the single fin and the twin fins configurations.
The thrusters give you stabilization, control and manoeuvrability in all types of surfing conditions.
This concept was the brainchild of Australia’s Simon Anderson

QUADS 4 FINS

With four fins in the water, Quads boasts an extraordinary amount of holding power in larger surf.
You may think that having four fins would sacrifice speed by creating more drag, but this is not the case.
The both sets of fins are working together on the rail, which makers believe they creates less drag than a board with a centre fin.
The manoeuvrability isn’t sacrificed either, with fins directly under your back foot, the quads are very responsive.

KEEL

Similar setup to the Twin Fin, although smaller (low profile) fins are generally placed wider (closer to the rails) on the surfboard.
Popular with Fish and Egg / Retro surfboards.
