Quobba Fins Quick Look / Innovative SUP Surf Fin Design

In this SUPboarder quick look video we are taking a look at the Quobba fins. Designed in Western Australian and tested over the world, these are SUP surfing fins with a bit of a difference.

Quobba’s patented fin design introduces chop stoppers, caudal keels and venting systems to increase speed, hold and drive when surfing. Their design is backed by science, research and studies of Computer Fluid Dynamics on fins to test the water flow around them.

On a normal surfboard fin, they found that the most turbulent drag is caused by the base of the fin and the water is so disordered that it creates a huge amount drag. Which isn’t great when you want speed. So Quobba have engineered a fin base that reduces drag. The tip of the fin looks very similar to a standard surf fin, but the base is where the magic happens. The wings on the side of each fin is what they call the chop stopper. These work in synergy with the caudal keel at the front of the fin to better order the water flow. Tripled with small vents in the bottom of the fin, water flows around the base length of the fin with less turbulence.

I have an Infinity RNB 8’2” x 30”. Side boxes are Futures single tab and centre box is a standard US box. I set the board up with left and right single tab, medium Quobba fins and dual tab Quobba in a FSC to US box adapter for the centre. Quobba have fantastic customer service. They will fit the rear dual tab fin in the US box for you and can accommodate different combinations of fins to suit different boards and riders. Just contact them and tell them what you want. I initially had Futures quads on the board for… Read more »

Cool, that you are testing those Quobba fins! I surf those on all my sups for quite some time now and I love them. Still curious always to try something else/new like: AU fins, EVA fins, Riptide, C-drives, K4 fins. But I keep coming back to these Quobba fins. By the way you shouldn’t change a winning team isn’t for me because I still want to try others brands like the S-wings, FYN Dynamics fins on my sup boards but hey. Awesome to see you guys testing these badboys out! My preference is Large side bites and medium middle.

Bought a set back in October 2022. Really love them. Seem as fast as the quad setup with more control. But had a problem where one broke. Emailed them and they replaced it no questions asked. Great customer service!
