G'day all - just found this great forum - I have recently bought a SH Coreban 14' Turbo, came with a cover that seems unusually difficult to put on, seems like it is a little too tight to go over the fins - is there a trick to it or is it possible that the cover has shrunk? Guy I bought it from had it slung in the corner of his storage unit, cover off. Any advice appreciated, thanks!

Those covers were as much about delivery convenience and protection as anything. It will have been delivered without the fins fitted. They are very tight. As long as a board is out of direct sunlight It's not a particularly good idea to store it in a cover anyway. If it's not perfectly dry it can affect the paintwork. Best just to use the cover for travelling, really.

The cover will protect from cats sharpening their claws on the pad :-)

You can keep a board in a bag, but either perfectly dry, or with the zip open to let it breathe, but then it must not be a tight fit. Otherwise you risk developing mold and bubbles (osmosis) in the painted boards.

You can cut a slot in the bag to let the fin through.

You'll be making a lot of cuts in the bag if you do that for the Coreban Turbo...

Ah ah yes, I didn't bother to google it :-)
Seems insane to not use FCSII screwless fin boxes for this kind of setup however...
