So I have been looking at all my short fins last week and of course fitting is always the issue.
I wish that the same company (Naish) would keep using the same type of fin box over time.
The Javelin is fitted with a US box (low pin)
The Maliko is fitted with a Longboard (Bahne) box (high pin)

I have been epoxying and drilling holes for pins on several fins so they fit in the respective box. The drawback is that some of the fins I am trying are now dedicated to one board and not the other.

"from Baddog. The Bahne Box fin has a 9mm base width that is shallower and has a higher pin position. The US Box fin has a 9.2mm base width that is deeper with a tab and has a lower pin position. The Bahne Box is thinner and shallower vs the US Box which is deeper and wider." Combination from Hell......

I agree, it is infuriating. It doesn’t help that there are various names for the same boxes as well. Basically, it would be easier if they just called them either a “surf box” or a “windsurf box”.

The specialist SUP fin brands also often don’t make it clear which type of box they fit either. Which adds in another level of confusion.

It would be much more fitting if they included the MFC Kai DW at 20CM if anything.

I put an order for one of these KAI DR — DOWNWIND RACING SUP 22cm.
After the success of running teh Mako 35 on my Maliko, I am curious to try this shape and a yellow fin :-)

Cool 8). I'd expect it to be more reactive than your Mako. I've been running the Dolphin Junior at 8" deep for anything over 20knots. Still looking into the Bump at 8" with a sweep somewhere between the the Kai DR and Dolphin.

The Maliko 2020 is really a fun downwind board up 25 knots in our conditions, but in general, requires a really good motor to perform in confused water.
