The Sonic Sup Race fin is the smallest and loosest feeling sup race fin we make, it frees up the tail of raceboards and encourages a dynamic, flowing and fast racing style. The combination of a race proven foil and progressive rake enable experienced riders take advantage of even the smallest of bumps which the ocean provides. This fast and loose feeling is ideal for elite riders with a high cadence who are in tune with ocean chop and currents. On flat water the Sonic is blisteringly fast, in downwind conditions it enables you to flow through a series of swells and in surf the ability to take off late and carve on the wave face opens up new possibilities during beach races like the Pacific Paddles Games.

By design this is not a fin for everyone! Hopefully by reading the above comments you will be either “Yes, I definitely want the Sonic.” or “That is not for me.” Experienced paddlers are those most likely to benefit from the Sonic’s performance characteristics. Riders who like a free and fast feeling and are confident on their boards will experience benefits. If you like grinding out long distances with a low cadence then the Tiger or Maliko will be more suitable. If you have a higher cadence and want to enhance your agility then the Sonic is for you. If you like to surf your raceboard then the Sonic is certainly the choice. If you are an experienced downwinder then the Sonic will help you improve further. The Sonic has a 45 degree initial angle on the leading edge and progressively more curve, hence it is great at shedding weeds and trash, given it is short at only 18cm then those in shallow waters will also like this fin option. If you are planning to attend a race like PPG then then make sure that you have a Sonic in your fin quiver and get training hard (we’ll see you there).
