A skeg is a fixed blade that helps the kayak go strait. It may move up and down but does not turn side to side, nor is it for steering. Many sea kayaks and cross-over kayaks are outfitted with a drop down skeg. A fin is typically found on a surf kayak and does not move at all. Please visit our Surf Fins department for a full selection. A skeg will often have a cable or lifting rope. These replacement parts can be found here in this section. Visit the Rudders + Skegs department for a wide selection of Smart Track parts, replacement parts, foot controls, tubing, cables and assorted fittings.
