Futures Fins Rasta Quad


Welcome Back Quad!
In case you haven't noticed Quad Fin setups are in and Futures Fins is on point! Not long ago the surf world thought three was better than four, thus the Thruster revolution began. Fast forward to circa 2005 and the thought is/was that three is not better than four, they're just different. Thus depending on surf style, surfers will bicker over which is better when in all reality we all want a Quad in our quiver now. So, if you have a Quad Futures Fins is there for you, designing a Quad line that was coming down the pipes long before Quads were cool. (again) So here we are and Futures Fins has us saying, "Welcome back Quad!"


Futures Fins Rasta Quad
The Futures Fins Rasta Quad was Co-designed with one of the world's best free surfers, style master Dave Rastovich and is a medium size speed generating quad with a ride number of 8.5. This V2 quad set was created for high performance surfing. Dave "Rasta" helped in the push for these fins to be made with renewable bamboo, which provides a lively flex pattern. The Bamboo was then wrapped in symbolic art provided by Rasta, to create the unmistakable Rasta Quad. A medium sized template that performs in a variety of conditions, the honeycomb construction combined with a V2 foil on the front fins and symmetrical foil on the rear fins create a looser feel, ideal for building speed. The bamboo in the base of the fin provides additional stability, allowing for more high speed performance and quick direction changes.

Overall Fin Rating: 4

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 151 - 160 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Wave Conditions: Fair
Misc. Wave/Location Information: N/A

Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: N/A

Other Thoughts: Rode the Rasta Quads with the Futures knub fin on my 5'9 neckbeard in 1-3 ft surf in Venice, Newport, and Salt Creek. The quad + nub setup has a lot of hold, but 5 fins drag a lot on really small waves. On bigger ones, can really go down the line fast, but harder to get loose on turns. Overall, I liked the fins, but going to try a smaller fin setup to get looser on small waves.
