Drive Speed Control and Maneuverability

Vektor started in 2002 when I was living on Kauai.  I started to design a fin with a unique template to improve drive, speed, control and maneuverability. I drew up a template and got my first prototype made from Island Fin Designs. I rode this template and noticed the difference in the ride right away. It felt really natural and smooth. I knew that this was a solid template.  I was amped on it and learned everything I could about fins and how they work. I eventually started to work for the same fin design company Island Fin Designs on the North Shore. I would make a fin then surf it after work. With the knowledge that I gained, I fine tuned the fins and made the correct adjustments. I started to experiment with different fin templates and learned first hand how they effect different aspects of performance in the water.

I’ve been working on the fins with the help of test riders and designers in the underground, ameutur, and pro levels for over a decade now. The fin angles, templates, installation, positioning, and performance have evolved over the years. Vektor’s unique fin template designed specifically for drop knee is properly balanced to give you drive, speed, control and maneuverability. Established in 2001, created in Hawaii, and tested around the world. Vektor Systems has now developed into the most advanced and functional high performance system for wave riding.


 

Vektor VT

VERSATILE TEMPLATE

The VT is the most versatile template. It is designed to work in all conditions ranging from small mushy surf to overhead hollow waves. It has a beefier tip and a 2″ fin depth to give it bite and hold with a 5” trailing edge to drive through the barrel. The length of the base is shortened to give it looseness in smaller waves. This unique template has the proper balance of fin depth, base length, and trailing edge giving you drive, speed, control, and maneuverability. The VT is the best fin to introduce riders to high performance fin design.

Vexcore is the newest innovation from Vektor Systems. Made with Honeycomb/Hexcore and Carbon fiber for added strength, stiffness and reduced weight. This allows for a thinner foil creating better projection and speed.

Specifications:
2” tall x 5” base.

Recommended Rider Size:
Weight (55-90+ Kg / 120-200+ Lbs)


 

Vektor VFC

FULL CIRCLE TEMPLATE

VFC-Full Circle template. This template is designed for hollow bowling waves. Where bite and maneuverability in the pocket are critical. The fin base has been widened to add extra drive and speed but has a steeper rake for release and an enhanced pivot for a tighter arc. Great fin template for tight maneuvers and snaps.

Vexcore is the newest innovation from Vektor Systems. Made with Honeycomb/Hexcore and Carbon fiber for added strength, stiffness and reduced weight. This allows for a thinner foil creating better projection and speed.

Specifications:

Recommended Rider Size:
Weight (65-90+ Kg / 145-200+ Lbs)


 

Vektor VS

SMALL TEMPLATE

This template features a reduced amount of fin mass to enhance looseness by focusing on releasing the fin. This template is recomended for smaller to medium size waves where the need for speed and releasing the tail are essential. Works great for smaller riders or if you want a loose feel.

Vexcore is the newest innovation from Vektor Systems. Made with Honeycomb/Hexcore and Carbon fiber for added strength, stiffness and reduced weight. This allows for a thinner foil creating better projection and speed.

Specifications:
1 3/4” tall x 4 1/2” base.

Recommended Rider Size:
Weight (43-65+ Kg / 95-145 Lbs)


 

Vektor VD

DRIVE TEMPLATE

Drive, Speed, and Control. These are the elements that were developed and put into the VD. The longer base creates more drive and speed. It works extremely well in point breaks and hard carves. The VD’s also perform in small mushy waves to create additional speed in flat sections.

Vexcore is the newest innovation from Vektor Systems. Made with Honeycomb/Hexcore and Carbon fiber for added strength, stiffness and reduced weight. This allows for a thinner foil creating better projection and speed.

Specifications:
2 1/8” tall x 6” base.

Recommended Rider Size:
Weight (65-90+ Kg / 145-200+ Lbs)
