CNC Fins

Casey’s Blog:

 Since I have started to build my own boards now, I naturally have spent a ton of time trying and experimenting with different fins and set-ups. I have found that different foils/shapes make a huge difference, and can really change the characteristic of the board a lot, especially on multi fin set-ups.   It’s a whole lot easier to tune in a single fin that’s for sure. Now learning all that, I wanted to make my Goya quads shred even harder, So Last fall I got my hands on some custom fins made by CNCfins for my Goya quads. I got to talk to the guys at CNCfins a bit at the AWT Hatteras last year. I came away very impressed.  They have some very impressive technology going into the fins they are making, Some of which I have studied and know about myself. So I knew they were not full of marketing B.S. like everybody else.

 Now if anybody knows me, knows A) I have to try everything and B) I am always looking for better performing gear. Now after 6 months of some Real world hardcore testing on these fins, I am “insanely” impressed.  These are the first fins that I have ever tried, that I could actually feel the difference in every situation. With these fins you can feel the board plane up quicker, glide thru lulls that it never did before, it feels faster, points higher, never spins out, holds like a rock in a bottom turn, turns sharper than ever. They freaken feel like these magic wonder fins. They gotta be rum infused or something like that. Hehe!  No really, I know I am probably sounding like an info commercial, but these fins are a huge jump up in performance compared to all the rest of the fins available on the market today.  I have tried most of the other brands fins and was always left disappointed, there never seemed to be much of a noticeable performance gain over the stock fins, and I always felt like I wasted my money.

 These CNCfins will make your multi fin board feel like it has been supercharged, some of the best money I have ever spent. I was so stoked on the fins, I bought a Weed fin for my 122L freeride board on their recommendation. Even though I have always despise all Weed fins, because they have all been so useless since they were invented.  It took just one session, and I couldn’t believe how good the fin worked, It felt just like a fast pointer fin., for the first time in my life I was actually having fun on a weed fin, Very unbelievable. If you sail in a location were you have to use a Weed fin. I highly recommend you get one of these, then do a direct comparison to your current weed fin. I am sure you’ll come away insanely impressed as I was.

  1. Thanks for the tip. I replaced the stock fin on my Exocet WindSUP 10 with a 50cm racing fin from Maui Fins. The difference in light wind performance and top speed was immediately noticeable.

    In some situations the fin might be too large, but you can compensate for that with sailing style. It was a great improvement and well worth the money.

    I will check out CNC fins next time I need a new fin.
