Never Struggle With Fins Again
The Finpuller will save your hands and your sanity.
Are you a dentist, pianist, puppeteer, or other manually gifted individual who loves the feeling of a hard carve in the pocket?
And do your hands, which are soft like breasts and dexterous like a cat, become intolerably sore every time you switch out your fins?
Then boy do we have the thing for you!
Introducing the Finpuller – a device designed specifically for inserting and extracting stubborn surfboard fins.
Whether you use Futures or FCS, chances are you’ve encountered a fin base too big or a fin box too small. This results in painful red lines across your hands, unnecessary sweat on your brow, and in many cases the use of a shoe, TV remote, or battering ram to get the skeg either in or out of position.
However our friend Guri, who created the Finpuller, doesn’t believe it should have to be this way.
After tinkering away in his garage, Guri created a tool that could handle fins with ease. All you’ve gotta do is slide the fin between the two slats, squeeze the lever together and either pull for extraction or push for insertion. It’s so easy a child can do it.
Stab was introduced to this product while in Waco for our Stab High event. This turned out to be rather fitting, because as we would come to learn, the pool’s dye has a stretching effect on our boards’ fin boxes, making them exceptionally tight.
You know that saying of how many monkeys does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Well you should have seen the entire Stab team, both individually and in groups, attempting to jam a set of normal-sized fin into these shrunken slots.
After no less than 15 minutes of punishing our hands and egos, some kind man came to the rescue and, with the help of the Finpuller, popped those suckers in with oily ease.
Through that experience we were converted from the mindset of “cool toy, nerd” to “I need one of those stupid things right now!”
The truth is there’s a lot of bravado in surfing, but with the Finpuller available, there’s no longer a need to batter our hands or wet our brow before going for a surf.
Just buy one of, pop it in your trunk, and never struggle with skegs again.
Unless you forget your fin key of course. We can’t help you with that.
If you have tender hands and love an accoutrement, Get your Finpuller here.*
