Kite Glossary: Fins

The Kiters Inn Wiki answers all questions about the kite sport. Especially beginners should find it easier to get started with kiting. If you miss some term, please feel free to get in touch with us. We always like to update our kite wiki.

The fins are attached to the underside of the board and, simply described, look like an upside-down shark fin. They give the board guidance and stability. They counteract the drifting downwind. The use of the fins and the rail (edge of the board) makes it possible to run upwind.
