HOW TO: Change the finbox of your new foamy X
We have just launched our new foamy X surfboard collection, which is all about shredding more and worrying less. With a thicker rail tape and our trusted A\V ST - Construction you will have more time the water because of their durability.
Besides the updated, cleaner design we've also added the x-changeable finbox. We understand the need for costumization of your surfboard in order to fit perfectly to your preferences and surfing style. All our foamys X, therefore, contribute to this understanding by making you choose the finsystem you like.
Side Note: Especially in riversurfing, broken fin boxes can occur quite often. Because of our innovative new finbox, you can say goodbye to time consuming repairs and just change the finbox quickly.
Our Teamrider Rosina Neuerer will show you the most important steps:
STEP 1: TAKE OUT THE SCREWS
In order to change your finbox, you have to take out your drop through screws. You can just use a 2€ coin to screw them out and put them on the side for later.
Make sure, to use the right length of the screws for the right thread, when putting them in again. The screws that cover the pad of your foamy X should be a bit longer in order to go all the way through.
STEP 2: CHANGING THE FINBOX
Now, that you've taken the screws out, you can remove the finbox you want to exchange.
After that, take your new finbox and place it in the right spot. The more protruding curvature of the lateral fin boxes should point to the center. Note, that the center fin box should have the elongated, narrower part facing the nose of the board.
STEP 3: THE LAST FINISH
After pressing the finboxes firmly into their right spot, you can take your drop through screws and put them back in. A 2€ coin can be helpful again.
Now, that you are good to go, you can insert the fins and get ready for your next surf session. Check out our How to, if you want some more helpful tips.
