Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good weed fin that also provides early planing and upwind stability.

I have a True Ames weed fine that works very well.

True Ames are good.  Just make sure you get one with the fin offset forward of the box.

Agree with Randy & Brian on True Ames.  Their site's a bit funky to find all the weed fins they offer, but I found this windsurf collection link:  https://www.trueames.com/collections/windsurf

 Thanks Dave.  I have the 'blade weed' and the 'surf grass'.   The blade weed sheds weeds better, but I like the surf grass better on my small, higher wind boards.

I picked up a couple of used fins. A Tues Ames 16.5” Sweeper (Glass), and a Fin Works 12.5” weed fin (Composite). Both are in good condition but have some minor scratches and nicks at the bottom (probably from running-a-ground in shallow water) and on the trailing edge. Do you guys smooth out these imperfections?

Tom,

If they are greenish, then they are probably G-10 material.

Some people sand them and some people just ignore the minor stuff. 

I fill chips and dings with epoxy and wet sand back to the original profile.  Minor scratches at the tip of the fin I usually don't bother with unless I'm jonesing during the off-season.
