SUP USBox vs USSurfBox

Post by Louis-MAKANI » 07 Mar 2017, 13:57

Hi everyone,
Fin boxes in windsurfing is painfull since there is so many kinds (DeepTuttle, Tuttle, Power, MiniTuttle, US, Slot, Star, Trim). I really though it would be easy with SUP fins but it is not the case. In the industry right now we have two types of boxes: USBox and USSurfBox

Here's some explanation that you can find also on the MakaniFins website: https://www.makanifins.com/pages/sup-box

-----------------------------------
1) US Box (Windsurf spec)

MAKANI FINS SUP Custom box:
To manage this we made a custom box with 2 pins insert. By default it is fitting the US Box. If we want to modify it to US Surf Box, we change the pin position and sand as the red line shows.
