Awesome Future Fins

 

Aloha Welcome to the Future fin ride number page. All Future fins have a number associated to each fin, it's called a ride numbers.

The higher the number the more flex the fins have and it's designed to generate speed. Usually ridden in smaller weaker waves. Most of the high number fins have an inside foil with more flex at the tip.

The Lower numbered fins have a flat foil on the inside of the fin and usually are made out of stiffer materials so they don't  flex as much as the high numbered fins. Usually the low numbered fins  are for bigger surf or heavier riders. 

One fin temple like a AM can have two different ride number. So don’t get confused. The inside foil and material determine the ride number.

DESCRIBES THE FEELING OF A FIN 

This feeling is represented on a scale from Speed Generating to Speed Control (shown above).
The closer you get to 10, the more springy, fluid & responsive your board will feel to help generate speed.
The closer you get to 1, the more solid, engaged & predictable your board will feel to help control speed.
Fins with a Ride Number around 5 feel balanced & do not add any premium feelings to your board - they let your board’s original character shine.
