Hi, I've just picked up some slider fins (Ronix 0.8 Slider fins) for my wakeskate and so need to drill new holes for them. As I want two at the end near the rail like side bite fins, my question is should they be parallel with the direction of travel, or angled in slightly and if so, how much?

Many thanks
JC

Do not really have an answer but.... I have never seen any production wakeskates that had fins on an angle. And the only wakeskate I have seen with fins on the edge are the karve and that was only in the rear of the skate more like a surf style skate.

If you are going to do them on the edge I would say mount them flat since those slider fins actually have a wider width than most fins.
