Generation Series
"When I worked with the Futures Engineering team, we measured flex in a couple different areas of the fin and that was really crucial to having a fin feel so natural under your feet. It's the minute changes in the orientation of the fibers and where the fibers are used in the fin that creates that natural flex pattern and it was really fun to experiment with the guys and come up with a fin design that's going to suit all surfers."  - Hayden Cox

AN INTRODUCTION TO RIDE NUMBER
 
Do you want to feel more secure on the face of a wave? Choose fins close to 1. They're often a favorite among powerful surfers or in powerful waves where controlling speed is important. You’ll feel a solid engagement to the water for a more stable and predictable ride. For a more fluid, springy and responsive feel choose fins close to 10. They’re usually a favorite among light footed surfers or in small waves. They’re great at helping create speed when the waves are weak. Fins in the middle of the scale close to 5 will feel neutral in your board. They’re not made to control or create speed or to add any premium feelings to your board - they let your boards original character shine.
 
It's simple, just determine your size range and then determine what feeling you desire to find your next Ride Number. To explore further, click play on the video to the right.
 
 
 
 
Foil
V2 Foil
A V2 Foil is a V. Foil and Flat Foil blend. It takes the best speed generating attributes of the V. (at the base) and transitions into a flat foil in the tip for a controlled release in critical turns. Try the V2 foil if you are transitioning from flat sided fins. The benefits of the V. foil base will be noticeable but the change for your muscle memory will not be too drastic.
