I am considering replacing the stock fin in my One Evo 2, 14'x28" sup. Predominantly used in open flatwater. Looking at either the FCS 11 Erin Terrien 8.5", or the FCS 11 Danny Ching 9". Looking for improved speed, tracking and ability to deal with weed. Any advice, feedback or other fin suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a Danny Ching and other fins but I have found the VMG blades are great for 14ft boards.

Thanks Dave. The VMG fins look great, but are a bit over budget.

Where do you buy paddle board fins from and do they differ from shortboard fins in size. I just discovered the quad fin setup i have been using for the last 4 years has one fin way bigger then the other three.

I buy from SUP shops here in a Melbourne but have found buying the VMG online a better option,exactly the same price but it's just easier sometime if you don't get the right answer from a retailer.

Quobba fins, of course! They are way better than other fins, Australian made, and you even have a 25% rebate this week...

Just sanded and installed a VMG Time Trial fin onto my SIC RS 14 x 24.5. Have not tested yet. Will report back.
