Rake

Rake fins are the counter part to pivot fins. Their sweep back posture helps to hold in steep faces and maintain control in large surf. While upright pivot fins will allow the board to pivot, rake fins will carve a turn. For this reason pivot fins lose stability at higher speeds, and rake fins become more stable as speed increases. A rake fin with a wide base and narrow tip will have a great deal of drive and hold for turning off the bottom laying into a full railed cutback in the flats, a good place to start for small single fins or a speed shape. A rake fin with a narrow base and large volume tip will stay loose at low speeds and still hold the tail in while noseriding. A general rule of thumb for sizing is 1” of fin per foot of board (9' board gets a 9” fin). Go about an inch bigger for single fin shortboards.
