Imagine cruising along on a nice clean wave and then all of a sudden, bam - your fin hits a rock, sending you over the nose and your fin damaged. Your session gets cut short in an instant and that awesome fin that you've been bragging to your friends about is now better off in the garbage. Sound familiar. We hope not, but this can happen. Not only the fin can get messed up, but the fin box as well.
The Skeg Saver is here to help! In the event of severe impact to the fin from contact with under water obstructions, Skeg Saver's internal nut separates from the plastic slide, thereby releasing the forward tab section of the fin. The fastening screw is retained in the fin tab by Skeg Saver's internal nut. Skeg Saver is able to sustain repeated impacts below its breakpoint without suffering degradation of changes to its designed failure point. This is a great replacement for a standard metal screw and plate for your surfboard or windsurf board.
