First time on the board, lost the center thruster fin :( Just fell out. Now what? Anyone have any leads on where to buy a replacement in the US? Is this common? Should I have used locktite or something?

Normally you do not have to use anything but a phillips #3 to tighten the fin. Was the little spacer on the screw? Anyhow, try http://www.tridentsports.com . They'll find you a Airush dealer and hopefully you can get a single fin and not have to buy a set. You could also just try a Fin company that makes mini tuttle. The centre fin has no cant, so its just a matter of matching the size and shape
Good Luck.

Bummer that happened at all, but the first time on the board, that really stinks. I think there are several options to replace that fin. The first is to buy a mini-Tuttle center fin on eBay -- there are some out there. Mini-Tuttle fins are not cheap though, so another choice is the mini-Tuttle to FCS adapters, then buy an inexespnsive, but large, FCS fin. The FCS fin will never be as big as the Carver fin from the original board though -- surface area of the fin determines what type of connection is required -- bigger fins exert more force on the connection point.

They are not always easy to find (pimp alert), but we have one set of tri-fin adapters left. http://www.adventurekiteboarding.com/NS ... tuttle.htm

Thanks,

Thanks guys. You have been a big help! May have found one but they need to know what size bolt I need and my board is not with me right now lol. Anyone know what size bolt I need? They thought 25mm but I have no idea.
