TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

At RADBUG, we design products for 4 levels: Novice, beginner, intermediate and advanced.

- Novices: Up to the navel, no fins, small waves < 50 cm, propulsion by pushing your feet on the ground and riding the wave to the shore. For a 1st wave-riding experience (bodyboard with grips).

- Beginner: Gentle turns in waves up to 1 m, propulsion with fins. A must for learning to bodyboard.

- Intermediate: Waves up to 1.50 m, more speed and the beginning of tricks (360 °, El Rollo, etc.).

- Advanced: All types of waves, command of tricks, even aerial: ARS, 360°, tube...

These fins are designed for intermediate bodyboarders and provide the ideal compromise between comfort and propulsion.

Softer materials make these fins more comfortable.

Propulsion is provided by the stiffness and area of the blade: stiffer material and side ribs.

The symmetrical shape offers a good balance between finning power and fin volume.

For extra comfort, add neoprene socks.

The use of fin leashes is strongly recommended: Available for purchase separately.

Choosing the right fin size / Recommended fin leashes.

Always try on the fins before buying them. Your foot should be supported without being compressed. The strap at the back should be in contact with your heel, and your toes should not be bent.

If you add neoprene socks for comfort and/or warmth, you will need to go up half a size. Consider trying the fins on with and without socks at the time of purchase.

Using a fin leash, or not, will also require you to go up or down half a size.

Buoyancy.

A fin should be heavy enough to prevent it from reaching the surface when you are kicking. As such, we have designed a fin with slightly positive buoyancy so that it rises to the surface if you lose it, whilst still being able to keep it underwater without much effort when kicking.

Hold in the wave.

To ride down the line of the wave on a bodyboard and not swerve off to the side, you can use fins to help you. The side ribs will help you to stick to the face of the wave better and maintain a steady course.

Asymmetric fins (e.g. RIP fins) can accentuate this phenomenon and require good bodyboarding skills since. As a result of the thrust of the fins not being symmetrical, additional twisting forces are experienced in the knees. They are therefore reserved for advanced users.

Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 1.

Bodyboarding is a fantastic sport, but one that requires everyone to respect certain basic rules to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all.

1- Seek information about the spot and observe its characteristics: current, rocks, tidal influence, size of the waves and number of people in the water, etc.

2- Don’t overestimate your level, and go for an easier spot if your skills don't match up to the conditions.

3- Use suitable equipment: Leash, fins and board in good condition, suitable diving suit.

Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 2.

4- Respect the rules of right of way on the waves: Right of way goes to the person closest to the peak.

5- Avoid the breaking wave area when moving back up to the peak to avoid cutting another boarder off.

6- Use fins if the water is above your hips.

7- If you’re not using fins, it’s recommended you keep to a supervised area. Lifeguards can tell you where these are.

8- Bodyboard in a group.

Also suitable for bodysurfing.

Although these fins are primarily designed for bodyboarding, they are also recommended for bodysurfing (with our hand plane 100 for example). Their symmetrical blade and comfort-to-propulsion ratio explain why they are popular with many bodysurfers who surf waves with their bodies with the help of fins and hand paddles (also known as hand planes).
