I love the way my 5’11” board rides but so far out of 10 sessions I’ve lost 3 fins. Anyone know how to keep them from falling out?

Tighten the set screw located on the fin box!

Bin there, done that.  The set screw does not hold the fin in place.

After losing my centre fin in La Ventana this winter (thanks JZ for hooking me up with another!) I decided to add a drop of “seal-all” to the bottom area of the fin just below where the set screw tightens (found a tube in my truck).  This created a clear bump of adhesive that is water resistant and bonds like a crazy, creating more surface area below the set screw so the fin can not pull out. I’ve done this to all my fins now and after a winter of riding I haven’t lost another fin.
