Tiger v2 SUP Race Fin from Black Project and Fiona Wylde

Tiger v2: SUP Race Fin for Speed and Maneuverability

Forged from the most successful SUP race fin of all-time, the Tiger v2 makes speed and maneuverability easier and more accessible than ever—the one fin that unites all paddlers. It’s not often in sports that you get to use the same specialized equipment as the pros.

At Black Project, it’s our mission to ensure standup paddlers never face those same barriers. Our customers deserve to reap the same performance benefits that are afforded to World Champions like Arthur Arutkin or Fiona Wylde. We work closely with these elite champions to develop our premium SUP fins and deliver a significant performance advantage to every paddler—regardless of where your start line is.  No matter if you’re fighting for a SUP World Championship or a personal best

Ray v2: New SUP Race Fin for Increased Stability and Tracking

Stable paddling is fast paddling. There’s a common misconception about SUP fins that an increase in stability results in reduced speed. While that may be true for world champion paddler like Connor Baxter, Fiona Wylde or Arthur Arutkin, the vast majority of paddlers will significantly benefit from a more stable paddling experience. Our all-new Ray v2 is the fin that ensures paddlers never have to choose between stability and speed. An ideal choice for a wide-range of paddlers and various board styles, the Ray v2 enhances the performance of your board by adding stability, tracking, glide, and adjustability. While the original Ray v1 was our best-selling fin, settling for good enough will never be good enough for us. As subscribers to the Principle of Kaizen—the concept that you can always do things better, even if they seem to work well in a particular moment—we went back to the drawing board

Five Ways Standup Paddle Race Fins Affect Handling & Performance

Five Ways Standup Race Fins Affect Handling & Performance

Video: Five Ways Standup Race Fins Affect Handling & Performance A good standup fin can make a big difference in top speed, but where it really makes a difference is in board handling and performance. Helping you move through the water easier, allowing you to track better and letting you worry a lot less about steering so you can stay focused on just paddling. As conditions change, the ability to adapt and fine tune the characteristics of your board is really important. Rather than buying two or even three boards for different conditions, you can use fins of different sizes and styles and achieve a similar result. It’s really important to have more than one type of fin in your quiver. In this video Black Project’s founder Chris Freeman (@Chrisk97) talks through five characteristics of paddle board performance which can be influenced by fin choice – Tracking – Stability – Speed – Glide –
