Creatures Fins

Creatures Fins Here is a sneak peek at the new range of Creatures Fins that are arriving at Zak Surfboards shortly.  With their new range of fins, Creatures have endeavored to simplify the art of picking the right fin.

Creatures have designed 2 distinct styles of fins for each of their team riders – the Vert series and the Arc series  (pictured here are Mitch Coleborne’s).

Mitch Coleborn VertThe Vert Series are designed for tighter, snappier turns, with quick direction changes and surfing in the pocket in mind.  The Vert series are a more upright fin with less sweep or rake (up to 33 degrees).

Mitch Coleborn ArcThe Arc Series have been formulated for extra drive, carves & drawn-out turns.  These Arc fins have been designed for longer, down the line waves  (with more sweep or rake – over 33 degrees).

All the Vert & the Arc series fins are then available in 3 different sizes which you can pick according to your weight :

Small less than 65kg, Medium 65-80kg & Large 75 – 90+kg

These are also 3 different constructions that you can choose from:

Core Flex – a lightweight construction with a fluid flex pattern

Carbon Flex – a slightly stiffer lightweight construction that has a more responsive feel

Pure Fibreglass – a stiffer base with a more natural flex pattern through to the tip, with the most similar feel to traditional glassed on fins

You will also be pleased to hear that all of these Creatures Fins will be available in both FCS & Futures Fin compatible styles.  With a set of both Vert and Arc Series fins appropriate to your weight, you should be covered for virtually all conditions :)

Zak surfboards has a massive range of new fins to test drive from FCS & Future fins, all you need is to leave a retail deposit  and take any fins for a surf then if you like them you can purchase a new set.

 The new SOLUS  fins from Futures has had a great wrap a few crew have loved them. Steve our test rider destroyed 13th beach up on monday ( sorry no photos the surf was to good). They are described as a fin you can surf 2ft summer beaches in then surf 6ft g-land smoking barrels.They work in wide tail fishes to rounded square 5’11s and pin tail 6’8s. As the name suggests, if you only buy one set of fins this year make it the SOLUS from FUTURE FINS.


The FCS H-3 NEXUS features TRICOIL technology, a dynamic flex pattern that effectively stores and releases energy as the surfer transitions from one turn into the next. This transition between turns is where most surfers struggle to maintain speed. At FCS we believe we’ve solved this problem by designing a fin with a highly efficient template, material stability, minimal drag characteristics, and above all, unparalleled flex properties.

From the moment you ride the FCS H-3 NEXUS you’ll realise this fin has something special. Weather your surfing tight in the pocket or carving on the open face, you can surf confidently knowing all the elements of the fin are working in synergy to deliver the ultimate advantage, more speed. The performance of the H-3 Nexus is seamless; yet quite deliberate in the way it feels. Nexus on test drive in october
