Victoria Factor fin position

Recommended Posts

mrothwell

I ended up getting a Victoria Factor from their clearance page.  So far I'm really enjoying the board, but have a question on the fin position.  There are 3 possible positions (fore, aft, center) to mount the fin.  What does each position do to how the board rides?  Pros and cons of each position?  @wakemitch

Also, I think it was on this forum that I saw a video of a lady doing continuous 360's on a Victoria board.  I was trying to find it to show my wife what's possible (not that I'll ever be able to, but it's fun to watch).  Anyone know where to find that video, I haven't been able to find it again.

Here ya go:  

This girl is only 16 and makes it look so effortless! I think it's all in the balance - she's actually working

Yup, that's the video.  It's amazing to watch how easy she makes it look, and how bad it makes me feel about my skills.

Closer to the tail makes the fin hold/track longer. Further forward it is looser and releases sooner. 

I recommend having the back edge about 1” from the end of the tail

Thanks.  I originally put it in the "middle" slot, but was curious.
