Now that you know why you need performance fins, get educated on how to choose the right fins:

Steps to choosing the correct performance fins:

1. Okay.

2. Chose a fin size based off your body weight. Use fin manufacturer size charts for guidance.

3. Chose a fin shape based off the type of waves you’ll be surfing. Short, punchy waves like a more vertical fin for tight turns in the pocket. Long, open-face waves like a fin with more rake for a wider arc on an open wave face.

4. Put the fins in your board and go for a session!
