  • NRS SUP Board Fins

    Q:

    will this fin work in the Starboard 14' Inflatable?

      A:

      it seems like ASTRO has its own astro box fin system which works differently than the NRS fin. You should have a thorough look at the fin systems, as far as I can see there's about 3 different ones around, US BOX, ASTRO BOX and the quite common one that NRS uses. Works fine with JP Australia & BIC for example. ASTRO seems to offer a whole variety of fins, there shouldn't be a problem to find a small one: http://star-board-sup.com/2014/products/accessories/astro_accessories
      Good luck!

      No.
      The Starboard's use a different fin mount system and finbox (with a true
      recessed fin 'slot').
      Take a look at some Badfish products and you'll see how this type of fin
      works on a finbox with the fin sliding mount 'outside' or on top of the
      board.

      Packy, the base on these fins is 1 3/8"W x 7 3/8"L. Also, look at the Product Info on the plate the fins fit in, Item # 86104.01. There are measurements you can compare to those on your board.

      A:

      The Fin Replacement Plate that these fins fit in is Item # 86104.01. The plate is PVC, so Stabond or Clifton Urethane Adhesives will stick it to most inflatables. Not familiar with an Ultrafuse, but assume it's a hardshell. If so, take a look at G/flex Epoxy, Item # 50215.01. It bonds well to PVC and many plastics and composites.

      Yes, you should be fine using the 2" fin on your NRS Pike Kayak. The fin base is the same and will accommodate the 9", 5" and 2" fins giving you a good range to play with. Also, they're bomber and cheap. Thanks NRS! BB

    Q:

    I have a JP Australia Inflatable CruisAir SUP. I broke my 9" fin and it looks like the one in the picture. Can you tell me if it is compatible?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Linda, I don't find anything on JP's website that tells me for sure. Look on the Specs tab there on the product page for the dimensions of the base of our fins. Watch the video there on the page. Look at the Fin Plate our fins fit in, Item # 86104.01. Use the zoom feature on both product pages to get a closer look. You should be able to determine from all that whether our fins will work for you.

      A:

      The JP Australia board looks like it has a standard fin box, so it will probably fit. If you want to be sure, look at the Product Info for the NRS Replacement Fin Box Item 86104.01. You’ll find all the dimensions of the box this fin will fit, compare them to the dimensions on your board.

    I am looking for something to help my 9' inflatable kayak track straight, can I put this on and what size should I try, it is pretty bad, no matter how light I paddle, move forward or back, change air pressure, nothing works. thanks
    Asked on 8/25/2014 by animal from spokane, wa

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Fins can certainly help with tracking. To use the fins you'll need to glue on the Fin Replacement Plate, Item # 86104.01. As to fin size, the larger the fin the more surface area there is to counter side-to-side motion. If you're in open water the 9" will be fine. In a river where there can be shallow spots you may have to compromise with the 5". A single 2" won't help much. The Fin Plate is PVC. On most inflatable materials, Stabond Adhesive, # 38704.01, will probably be your best glue choice.

      A:

      Yes most likely but placement is key. Check out some surfboard sites for guidance on "fin placement" suspect you would want a pair of the lowest profile fins placed well astern so you can turn well. A single fin would not keep the bow from turning away from your paddle stroke. Set them temporarily with few globs of ShoeGoo (it can be peeled off) to test run before you commit to final placement with real adhesive

    Q:

    I have an old kayak that is missing a fin. It has a fin box attached to the bottom. How do I buy a replacement fin for this fin box?

      A:

      I’m not a skeg expert, but I think you might try and figure out who manufactured the fin/box combination that your boat has.
      You can, if you want, purchase the one NRS sells, and if it doesn’t fit, send it back.
      NRS has some skeg boxes that can be glued on to the boat, and then the skeg slipped in place and secured with a cross pin.
      Good luck with your project.

      Answered on 6/6/2014 by Hoosier Buddy from Asheville, NC
    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Judy, you can contact the manufacturer of the kayak and ask if they have replacement fins. You can check the measurements of our fins and see if they would fit your box. Or, you can glue on one of our Fin Replacement Plates, Item # 86104.01, and use our fins. If you choose that last suggestion, you'll probably need some advice on gluing it to whatever material your boat is made of. Give a call, 800.635.5202, for that or any other questions you have.

      Answered on 6/6/2014 by Clyde from NRS
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Judy,
      Depends on your mounting box but most are like what you see below; a slot
      that you slide the foot of the replacement fin into.
      NRS has excellent replacement fins for this type of mounting.
      Once the fin slides into the base, you lock it in place with the cross pin
      you see sitting alongside the fin and attached to the string.
      NRS offers at least three different replacement sizes that I know of.
      I own all three ranging from 3" to 9" and vary them on my Badfish board
      dependent on the rock configurations of the whitewater I am surfing and the
      river levels.
      And they are really affordable at about $10 each versus the $49 I paid two
      years ago to an unnamed manufacturer...
      Hope this helps,
      Jamie

      We do have this Stand Up Paddle Fin fin in stock at Riversport that NRS has
      provided in the photo. I believe that the customer has mentioned a "kayak"
      which leads me to believe that a special Thuster fin is needed if it was a
      Dagger King Pin, or Riot Kayak, even a surf kayak.

      First, I am no expert, so just providing my best guess. I would think if you already have the fin box or where the fin slides into, that all you need to do is order another fin from NRS, they offer different sizes. The challenge will be if a new fin from NRS fits in your existing fin box (slides in, same width and size to hold the new fin), thanks - Ed

      There are several different kinds of fin boxes. The fin you showed is for a
      fin box on an inflatable SUP. I've never seen a fin box like that on a
      kayak, but maybe......
      This is what that fin & fin box looks like.

      A:

      I am not familiar with the the brand , but a lot of the fin companies have the same size track for sliding the fin in. If the track is the same size, the important thing is that the batten that slides through the fin to hold it in place is in the same place. NRS has a good selection of durable fins I have retro fitted some of my inflatables with their fin track because of the durability of some of the NRS fins

      No, just the fin. Mount plate should be available from NRS. Use adhesive procedure on NRS website-follow their directions carefully and success is guaranteed. Fins will bust loose or shred with hard use-spares and other sizes come in handy. Compatible with some other makes of inflatables besides NRS. If unsure of fin placement can temporarily set plate with Shoe-goo until ready to commit

Comments about NRS SUP Board Fins:

It's great to be able to choose the fins that best suit conditions on any give day. I switch between lakes and shallow rivers, so there can be quite a difference in my needs. These fins have worked very well so far. I have had a couple of issues though. I have broken several of the short fins on mild whitewater. Perhaps if they were a little softer they would have absorbed the hits better. Also, on one of my bounds one of the slots has gotten very tight and it's difficult to remove the fin at the end of the day. I put some grease on, which helped in the short run. But I think it will make a mess with the sand.
