Setting up your Stand up Paddle Board Fin and Legrope

So you just got your new CMP Stand up Paddleboard and you have never installed a fin before. I am hearing you! It can be a little tricky to figure out so we have created a short video on how to install a fin. Also we have put together a quick guide to putting on the legrope which might save you a little time if you have never done this before.

SUP Fin Set up Guide

To install your Centre fin follow these steps:

  1. Remove the screw and aluminium plate from the fin
  2. Slide the aluminium plate into the recessed track in the fin box
  3. Put the aluminium plate as far forward so that it ensures the process is easier later
  4. Put the fin into the fin box. Slide the brass pin to the bottom of the opening and slide the fin backwards to the desired position
  5. The final step is to push the front of the fin into the fin box. With the provided philips head screw attach the fin to the aluminium plate.

To install your Side Fins:

  1. The side fins are placed in to the fin slot and the provided allens key will tighten the grub screw
    against the fin. The most important element of this process is to ensure you DON’T over tighten the grub
    So that is as simple as that!
    But now you have the leash and have no idea how that attaches to the board.

Setting up the Legrope on a SUP

A legrope is so important as when you fall off your stand up paddleboard you don’t want to have to swim after your board every time.
Follow our 4 Step Guide to attaching your legrope to your board:

  1. Get the rope at the end of the legrope and feed it through the leash plug
  2. Feed the leggie saver through the two loops of the rope
  3. Velcro the leggie saver up
  4. Put the legrope strap around your ankle and velcro it up. Now you are ready to hit the waves

Check out our short video below for visual reassurance you are doing it right.

So now it’s time to get paddling on your new stand up paddle board. Enjoy!

Do I need to wear a Life Jacket when I am Kayaking or Stand up Paddleboarding?

A stand up paddle board is not a vessel and so you are not required to wear a lifejacket.

But with Kayaking or Canoeing on 1 November 2010, new compulsory lifejacket wearing requirements came into effect. Lifejackets are required to be worn in the following circumstances and this covers kayaks and canoes:


  • Are required to wear an appropriate lifejacket at all times. This can be a Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3.


  • Are required to wear a lifejacket on enclosed waters more than 100m from shore.
  • On open(coastal) waters, including when crossing a coastal bar or on white water at all times.
  • This can be a Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3.
