Future Fins 5 Fin Sets topped up  – With the growing popularity of 5 fin plugs in surfboards (to allow for both Thruster and Quad fin set ups) it makes sense to grab a proper 5 fin set for your next fin purchase  and we have just replenished our stock.  Here are a few of the more popular 5 fin sets that we have from Future:

Clay Marzo Tech Flex Red 5 Fin Set

This is Clay Marzo’s signature 5 fin set with a great all around medium sized thruster set with specially designed additional quad rear fins.  Clay like many surfers likes to jump between thrusters and quads depending on the waves.  By utilizing the same side fins in both set ups – you have the advantage or a familiar feel when setting your rail – in a nut shell it makes it easier to transitions between the two.

Both set ups feature Techflex materials and a thicker fin foil creating the stiff flex pattern desired by Clay for his version of high-performance surfing. The rakey template provides drive and hold while the thinner tip gives you great release off of the top.

FUTURE FINS & FCS TEST DRIVE CENTRE

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 LATEST EVOLUTION IN FIN DESIGN COMES WITH A TWIST

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
