Do fins come with the board?
Yes. All boards come with a pair of Soft Fins suitable for learning / use between the flags. If you want to use hard fins, you will have to purchase separately.
Does the board come with a leash?
No. Leashes need to be purchased separately.
Do I need to wax my board?
Yes, although they generally don't require as much wax as a fibreglass board. The boards can be a bit slippery when first taken out of the plastic, so a good wash off with fresh water and a decent coat of wax will help. After this, just a light coating every few surfs, where your chest and feet go will suffice.
How do I install the fins in the fin boxes?
That's easy! You can just use the little fin key provided with the fins to unsrew a touch the little silver grub screws already present in the fin boxes so they are not in the way (avoid taking off the entire screw off the fin box).Then push the fins into the fin box and screw them back in until they feel firmly in! (Be gentle and do not overtight them, you can damage the fin or the screw head and the fin key).
How do I install properly the leash in the leash plug?
You will just need to slip the little leggie string trhough the leash plug :
(keep the original knot on)
Just make sure that leggie string is not too long and that it does not sit on the edge of the tail of your board otherwise it might ding into the foam overtime.
