The GILI 9” Touring Race Fin is the ideal option for both touring and racing in a variety of conditions.
The GILI 9” Touring Race Fin is designed for flat water conditions on inland lakes and waterways. The streamlined design allows for quick turns and increased maneuverability. In open water conditions, the deep draft and large surface area create better tracking allowing you to keep the board on course. Straighter lines allow you to move faster without additional effort.

The GILI 9” Touring Race Fin is compatible with our GILI Meno SUPs and fit any paddle board with a US fin box.
This is my go-to fin for my Meno 11'6' for rough waters (boat wakes, high seas) and for higher wind. Two issues I think don't make sense. The tightening screw design is not ideal. You have to remove the bolt and nut from the fin, then attach them again separately, run the nut through the guide (that holds the fin to the board), unscrew it, insert the fin, line the fin up with the detached nut, and then screw the bolt back in to tighten the fin against the board. Sounds overly complicated, doesn't it? Also you run the risk of losing that nut with all the attaching and detaching. Secondly, for other fins the bolt and nut attach to the board at the rear of the fin. In this 9" fin, the bolt and nut are at the front. It probably causes negligible resistance and performance changes, but still seems like a bad design from an engineering standpoint. -have to note, Gili customer service scores low for responsiveness
