Seems like we have been updating the site a little over the past year but we are finally getting around to adding some more interesting stuff. We are in the process of adding a lot more boards to the gallery made by a wide range of our wonderful customers.
The home page has been updated with some new graphics and a more focused description of the system. But then you probably noticed that when you arrived for this visit! At the same time we have also updated the print versions of our brochure and installation guide. The installation guide has been shortened to make it easier to print. Both of these PDF files can be downloaded from our this site.
The brochure can be downloaded by clicking here
The install guide can be downloaded by clicking here
We will also be adding more photos of fins over the coming weeks as we have a lot of them waiting in the wings to be added.
As part of our planning we are also planning on turning this page into a blog so that we can more easily keep you abreast of all things ProBox. Larry already has a blog going that will eventually be hosted here, but for now you can visit it through this link - ProBox-Larry
Finally, we will be creating new introductory and installation videos in the next month and will be posting them up here as soon as they are completed. Keep an eye out for them!
Be sure to check out the show issue of Trans World Surf magazine that will feature a full page ad for ProBox. We will also be one of the advertisers in the fin guide presented in that issue. Finally, also look for a full page Randy Rarick ad featuring ProBox!

Finally, our new web site is now up and running. This new site will allow us to keep you better informed on everything ProBox. There is still some missing content but this will be added in the coming weeks. For now all of the critical information is available.
There are a lot more fins on the new site and we plan on adding many more over the coming weeks and months, so keep checking back!
Let us know what you think!
After a lot of hard work we have our revised box and installation jig ready to go.
There have been numerous improvements to the box and we have completely redesigned the jig.
There are a few images to the right that point out the various changes to the box and the jig.
Most of these changes are geared towards improving the strength and easing the installation process. These changes were driven by feedback from many of our customers in both large and small surfboard factories.
The shape of the jig has been changed so that it now works with a 5/8” bearing on the router, this results in a lip being left between the inner edge of the jig and the routed hole. This lip moves the edge of the hole away from the inner edge of the jig making it easier for resin to saturate the routed edge of the fiberglass. The new shape also results in a larger gap between the dam on the box and the jig making it easier to pour the resin.
Finally, the material for the box has been changed to a material with improved strength. This new material also sands better and holds the screw threads a lot better!
For all of you old time ProBox users please read the revised installation instructions on this web site as we have some new suggestions for reinforcing the installation.
