Does anyone know where I can get some fins for a 5'6 butter board waesurf? It was given to me but withous fins. I didnt realize that the setup is different than others. It's much more like a surfboard with 2 fin boxes and it uses only 1 screw versus the standard 2. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I want to take it out. <BR>Paola

Paola, it's been a few years since I was on a Churn, but I believe they use Future Air fin boxes - the set screw is at the leading edge of the box and the tail of the fin "hooks" in to the back of the box. <BR> <BR>If that is the case, Inland Surfer uses Future's on their boards, they may sell fins only and virtually any online surf shop has Future Fins (just be sure to get the allen wrench also).

Thanks Jeff. Much appreciated. I will look it up.

Paola did you see the other post? Redx, not futures.

Redx didnt work still hunting for fins for this. Will post a pic.

The RedX didn't work? What was wrong with the size?

Butter boards were manufactured and distrubuted by Triton Sports (makers of DoubleUp Wakeboards also). Back in...shoot, '03 (?), they also acquired KD Watersports. The LAST known contact info I have for Triton and KD, in the US, are below. The mailing add'y and telephone #'s are the same for Triton and KD. I do NOT know about the email add'y. Maybe they can hook you up if the RedX aren't the correct fins. <BR> <BR>KD Watersports <BR>Triton Sports <BR>9490 Prototype Drive <BR>Reno, NV 89511 <BR>United States <BR>Tel: +1 (775) 852 7300 <BR>Fax: +1 (775) 852 7330 <BR>E-mail: <a href="mailto:casey@tritonsports.com">casey@tritons ports.com</a>

Thanks Jeff, <BR> <BR>I'll try the email. I tried again last night <a href="mailto:info@tritonsports.com">info@tritonspo rts.com</a> and it got bounced back. I'll try the number monday and see what happens. <BR>The redx fins were narrower than the fin box and the screw that goes with it was smaller in length.

I'm thinking that Trition and the Butter Boards aren't around any longer. Even the DoubleUp web site seems to have NOT been updated for a bit. The screw length shouldn't be a problem - just run down to your local ACE hardware - and get the right length...but the fin slides in the box, right? Can you shim the sides? Trim a bit of plastic or nylon, if you can't find anything from Triton?
