Select the aileron system of its inflatable SUP
There are several fins fastening systems on an inflatable SUP. This is a criterion to be considered when choosing his board.
1- glued Fins
The fins are quite flexible plastic and glued directly on the board.
Advantage: very robust; single; no introduction; no adjustment; no risk of losing a wing
Disadvantage: no possibility of changing the fins for more efficient fins; no adjustment; fins tend to deform when fallback have the board ( just heat them with a hair dryer to restore their original form )
2 Fins wedge
Disadvantage: weak; inefficient.
3- Spoiler slide
Advantage: robust and light; fixing without tools
Disadvantage: no adjustment; little fin choice; the fin can be difficult to set up or remove ( attention to the sand in the slide)
4- Spoiler US
This is the “high end” solution. US housing is the most standard fin attachment system. It is found on sailboards, surfboards typed longboard; most rigid SUP and quality inflatable SUP.
Advantage: the wide choice of fins suitable for each practice (whitewater, race, ride, surf)
Disadvantage: few euros more?
Note: The US housing (such as zip flap) is reserved for the central wing. In this case, if the side fins are available they are usually glued. SUP on some high-end, the side fins are removable with an FCS-type fastening system.
